DianSheng 3x3 Metal Cube
The DianSheng 3x3 Metal Cube is a very heavy 3x3 cube made from metal. At about 300 grams, it is one of the heaviest 3x3s currently in production. It comes with textured stickers applied.
Although it is a bit "locky" out of the box, some lubrication can help the performance.

My new FMC main lol.
I always try to bring cubes like this to FMC
you should have got this cube while they were available)
this is not a speedcube actually, but certainly a must in your collection. just unpeel all stickers (they are textured, by the way) and this lil' ugly duckling will turn into a swan))
now to the point.
1. it is heavy. could probably kill someone if thrown.
2. lubing is useless. at least conventional silicone lube is not helping at all. heavy duty thick lube for ball bearings might work, but i didn't try it - it's just a collectors item for me. it turns quite well for a non-speedcube, however.
3. production quality is its weakest point. lots of casting flaws. one might remove them with file, but that's a hell of a work - not that easy as with plastic cubes)). worst part of these flaws is bumps/casting leftowers on cubelets' faces. they are not visible when stickered and pain for the eye if stickers are removed. these are impossible to remove unless you can anodize the cube back.
all in all, it is, undoubtedly a showcase star. especially without stickers. give it to your dumb boss, and youl'll get a raise))). otherwise i'd give it two stars - it is horribly manufactured. if you want high-quality, high-precision metal cube - you'll do better by finding yourself a pro with CNC machine and a bar of aluminium/titanium and a *.cad file of your favourite cube.
not a great cube but it is a good conversation piece it is worth the reactions of the people you show it too
This cube doesn't really work as a speedcube, but It's great for collections. It's very heavy and not impossible to speedsolve if your turns are accurate. I only had one problem: the center caps are almost impossible to take off, and the default tensions don't really work for me. Still though, it's a great novelty cube.
Holy C***! This thing is heavy!!
If your looking for a weapon i form of a cube- choose this one.
Cornercutting? Non exsisting, both ways.
Fingertricking? Not possible at all.
Speedcubing? Not possible.
Stickers? Really sh****.
Even a standard rubies is faster.
BUT if your looking for a metal cube just for the sake of owning one- buy it. :) Like me:)
