I wanted to try this cube due to the good reviews I've seen. I tend to agree to its old school style: quite heavy (feeling massive), corner cutting not especially good, colour grade a bit different compared to latest magnetic cubes. All things together I actually like this cube due to its feeling. I won't have this as my main but prefer this as my practice cube for new algos.
Unfortunately I have yet to receive my order. Please chase it up
I'm a fan of QiYi cubes, so got this one for the collection because the price is pretty low. I'm glad I did, it's a good cube.
Out of the box (which itself is rather unusual!) the cube felt dry and scratchy. After some work with lube and tensions however, the cube responded really well. The plastic is glossy rather than matt and feels quite premium. Magnetic strength is decent - not GTS3 strong, but still stronger than most cubes on the market.
Turns feel fine, corner cutting is OK and it isn't the fastest cube in the world, which suits my turning style. Don't think this will be a contender for anyone's 'main' but a very good cube considering the price and recommended if you enjoy QiYi style of 3x3's
class cube. similar to the mgc v2, but better. it smooth and theres a slight drag when turning which i like. the corner cutting isnt too good but still, its great to solve with. deffo recommend
