Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

Prior to the release of the Danyan Tengyun M v2, I was pretty much a Gan zealot, and I'm still a pretty big Gan fan, owning literally all Gan cubes now except for the Air and 11. I usually carry three cubes with me -- a PVC coated Gan 356 XS, a Gan 356 X v2, and the Dayan Tengyun M v2. The Qiyi X-Man Tornado v2 has now replaced the Gan 356 X v2, but honestly just barely and I'm not entirely sure the replacement is permanent. The corning cutting on X-Man Tornado v2 is definitely its weakest feature. I like the configuration options of the X-Man Tornado v2 over even the high end Gan cubes, but I think the Dayan Tengyun M v2 configuration options are a better design. Honestly, it's not difficult to beat Gan at this with Gan's rather pathetic 2 tension and sliding magnet settings in $80 cubes, but I think the Dayan Tengyun M v2 beats the X-Man Tornado v2 by just a little when it comes to configuration options. I also think it's a REALLY bad decision by Qiyi to not allow disassembling the core in a flagship cube, and that (and the mediocre to poor corner cutting) is why I give the X-Man Tornado v2 four stars rather than five. It's good enough to replace my Gan 356 X v2, but no where close to being good enough to replace my Gan 356 XS or Dayan Tengyun M v2.
- Good finish/feel
- Smooth and quiet turning
- Excellent configuration settings
- Nice magnet system
- Excellent price (especially for what you're getting)
- Mediocre or even poor corner cutting. Changing the settings/lube helps with this, but it never really goes away.
- Cannot disassemble the core.
- I had to work a lot on the configuration to make it usable (stock configuration is not great and barely usable)
Still an excellent cube for the money, but if you're looking for a top of the line contender flagship for a budget price, I would look no further than the Dayan Tengyun M v2 over this one.
Love it. The adjustment mechanisms are very intuitive and easy to use which made tuning it in just how I like a breeze. Turns are smooth and give a very precise and deliberate feel. Absolutely worth the rather inexpensive price.
I've had the Moyu RS3M as my main for over a year, and haven't really liked any other cubes. This cube is now my new main. It's not that it's significantly better than the RS3M, but it is so customizable that it just barely takes it over. This is probably the most customizable cube I've even seen. Thus, even if you don't like the out-of-the-box performance, it's almost guaranteed to be a set-up that suits you.
My main complaint with the cube is its corner cutting, which is slightly worse that the RS3M. As a 2021 flagship cube, I would've expected it to be better. However, it honestly doesn't present too much of a problem.
This cube has a great feel right out of the box. I'm sending one to a family member as a gift!
Ootb it is a very fast, but smooth cube. The magnets are fairly strong, but manageable. It is super quiet, and has pretty good corner cutting. My only problem is the bright yellow circles around the magnets, which are somewhat distracting during solves. I am unable to hear springs, and it occasionally has a very slight clicking sound, but all cubes have something like that. Other than that, it is a very nice and affordable cube with a cool logo! I totally recommend it!
This cube is an absolute show stopper, but first, let's go through some pros and cons:
Smooth, papery feel
Most magnet adjustments of any cube
Perfect tensions OOTB
Very well designed tensioning system
Logo can be removed with a pencil eraser if you don't want it there
Somewhat lackluster reverse corner cutting
Rivetted screw doesn't make much sense in a cube
With that said, the cube flows very well when turning WITH ACCURATE TURNING. Attempting to brute force it with inaccurate turns will undoubtedly lead to lock ups and frustration. In all, it's a great cube at a great price, and definitely takes the YJ MGC Elite's spot as best flagship in the $20-$25 range.
This cube is amazing for the price. X-Man designs really put a lot of thought into this one, the adjustments are so user friendly and offer probably the best customization ive ever seen. This is far and away the #1 cube I would recommend.
Super great and cheap for a flagship cube. tensioning system is super easy to use
