> I like mine very much now,There's quite a lot of variation, even judging from a small sample of
4 Square-1s. All improved by lubrication after cleaning (only one
appeared to have been pre-lubricated), but none is really
satisfactory. Haven't tried a Cube-21 yet...
> gonna compare them to Lars's at DCD...Me too. See you there.
since I live in Prague, I can give you some information.
It is true, that Czech variation of Square-1 Cube 21
(which is in fact original - Square-1 is a copy :))
is freely available in many shops here.
However, recently the production of Cube 21 went to China
and these new series are horrible, so be careful.
The original series seems finished this year and they are
really good (good plastic, shape, stickers) but the stock
I do not sell them, but I know some people that have
knowledge where to get what type...
So If anyone is about to visit Prague and want to buy
Cube 21 here, email me and I can ask for info about it...
Cube 21 are well compatible with silicone oil in general...
