Product Description

The GAN 356 XS is the successor to the popular GAN 356 X. This new magnetic flagship 3x3 features multiple innovations in 3x3 design, including an adjustable magnet system, a dual-adjustment tension/compression system, and an all plastic core that significantly reduces the weight of the puzzle. These features put together, the GAN 356 XS stands as one of the lightest, most high-tech modern 3x3's on the market. 

Feliks Zemdegs used this puzzle to set the 5.53 second 3x3 world record average in November 2019.

Pretty good.

I like this cube better than the 11 m pro. It’s fast but is more controllable than the 11. I suggest the Dayan v2 over this one.

Comparable to 11 M Pro

Comparable to 11 M Pro. With the correct setting and premium lubrication, almost an ideal cube. Smooth, light and controllable. Can be recommended to almost everyone.

Long term review

After 2 years, the cube still feels amazing, the core is very resistant, it’s getting a little old, which is completely normal. It’s fairly expensive but lasts a lot, so I’d recommend it.


After I got this cube, I immediately got a new PB (4.52)

Don't expect too much

Don't get me wrong, tis is a great cube, i am very happy with my purchase, but i expected it not to feel like plastic on the inside. When i buy a premium product like this, i expect it to be a completely different feel. i no i can get tis with lubricant but i have to rate a little harsh for it's price. A lot of people think that that the frosted plastic is slippery, but i think the opposite, i love it. i would definitely recommend this to every one

I love this cube a lot

This cube is really good. I have had it for almost a year now and I love it. Corner cutting isn't ass good as I would have liked for this price point, but still very good. Tensioning is a bit confusing at first but easy to get used to, and you can change the magnet strength, which I really like. The inside of the cube gets a bit dirty so you have to clean it about once every 2-3 months.

really good but...

This puzzle is amazing the turning is quite smooth and the performance is incredible but one thing. The yellow side was a little looser than the rest and made a weird noise but i just tightened it a lil more than the other sides but it still makes a noise but other than that its really good

good but see the video

i like it

Awesome cube, hard to beat

This cube is extremely nice. Very lightweight but still seems sturdy. I really like the contrast in colors and the black inner behind the painted sides, making it pop without need for the black border. Compared to the Valk 3 Elite M, I prefer this cube feel and contrast in colors and seems sturdier comparatively. Between the two I'd choose this one.

I really like the drawstring to keep it protected on the go. I don't care for the kind of overly engineered diagonal hinge of the case it comes with. The magnet system couldn't be any easier and simpler to swap. Great product and could not recommend any higher!


A gift for a family member. He loves it.
