Cube3 Rubik's cube

Postby Epic_Espresso » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:55 pm



The Effect
A genuine Rubik's cube is solved instantly in the air, a bag and in one hand


Cost
£22.49


Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

4. No real sleights are needed, but hours of practice are needed to learn the cube and build the dexterity needed to perform the effects


Review
Very good quality cube, with easy to understand instructions. These are amazing effects with a recognisable product


Overall
This is very good, but if you don't like the grind of going over things, it's not for you.

Sorry, late response. But needed to say.. This is a nicely thought out routine. But i really struggled remembering the moves and sequences ?? :(
But then again, i am a bit old and have trouble remembering my name sometimes :lol:
I think this effect and cube is more suited for the youngsters. Gave mine to my 22 year old son, who also does magic, and he picked up everything in one day. :x :x :x :x :x

A friend of mine bought this a couple of months back, he recently did it at the local circle in around a minute or so

He tried to explain the sequences etc but it went straight over my head :lol:

I found the cube itself of very high quality. It came in a small card box with the now familiar printed link to the instruction download.

I put it in my drawer and there it stayed for almost a year until I swapped it for something I'm more likely to use.

As a previous poster said, the sequences and sleights can take some practice, but, this is not what put me off.
I have no desire to learn how to solve a Rubik Cube, which is exactly what I would have to do if I forgot the sequence or messed it up during practice or routine. I found this too daunting and would rather spend the time on something I am more likely to use.

So, is it worth the money?

The cube is certainly a nice quality and moves with enormous ease.

If you know how to reset a cube if you mess up, or don't mind learning how to, then probably yes.

If like me you were hoping for something you could quite quickly add to your repertoire, then you'll most likely end up swapping it too before it rots in your drawer!

I recently bought this, I'm 33 years old and have tried multiple times to solve a cube

After an hour watching the tutorial i solved my very first cube, i spent about 10 hours the day after learning with the cheat sheet and now i can solve a mixed cube without using the cheat sheet
