Without question this is the best pyraminx on the market. Turns smooth and has minimal lockups.
I am new to pyraminx, but have really enjoyed solving on this puzzle. Would definitely recommend. The magnets are super nice and give it a very snappy feel.
Bare with me this could be a long review I am going to try and answer some of the questions that I see in the question tab
One of the first questions that I have seen is which GES nuts do what and I too was confused but it goes from purple to yellow in a reverse rainbow. The purple ones provide a flimsy speedy feel that I personally really like. If you squeeze down on the nut it should compress really easily in your hand which makes the cube really flimsy and fast. It makes corner cutting really easy however because you are turning so fast it is easy to make mistakes. The downside to the really lose springs is that it pops all the time so I will be having a sub 5 solve with a last layer skip (I use top first because it was the first tutorial I found) and then when I go to AUF or I guess in Pyraminx ABF the edge piece slips out and boom goes the dynamite. When you use yellow springs on the other hand when you go to squeeze down on the nut it becomes harder to do and it becomes more firm. It makes turning harder and corner cutting far worse. If you like a really stable feeling cube then you will love yellow the turning is harder however I have never made a mistake on yellow springs.
If you look closely at the GES nuts real close you might see something that says 0.8, 0.6, and then a ban sign. On the Ban sign you can pull out the spring and change it. On 0.6 The feel is tighter and on 0.8 the feel is looser but to me I think for me it actually adjusts how strong the magnets are and 0.6 gives more of a pull. The personal settings I use are Purple springs on 0.6 but I would play around with all the settings and do even an average of 10 is what I did but if you want to do an Ao100 then I am not stopping you but do you really want to do 800 solves.
Now you might be wondering how to adjust settings, if you have used any other Pyraminx then you know to pop off the tips. You might however find yourself struggling to pop them off because they move but don't all at the same time. Some people might be able to find a way to uses their nail to get under it because if you feel under the cap you will find a lip. I don't have good nails so I often use my keys. You will thank me later.
One of the other questions that I see is: is the customizability worth it. The short answer is yes the long one is maybe. If you can customize then it is always worth it. However if you do not want to do some solves to find settings or you are a beginner and just want a really cheap functional cube get the Qiyi MS I have heard great things about it and I know that the Qiyi MS 3x3 used to be (or still is) Phil Yu's main. Besides the point I know that the MS line is Qiyi's good budget cube alongside the RS3M and the Monster Go I guess. So if you are looking for a good Pyraminx get that one because it is fine and functions well but it is a budget cube. But if you are like I got this cube as person who had only once solved a Pyraminx once before I became a cuber and someone in class had the ShengShou so I tried it out and was happy when I had solved one layer and the rest of the puzzle happened to be solved. Unrelated but what I am saying is that if you want to spend the money spend it.
So I hope I have provided enough insight. It is a great Pyraminx if you want to make it great. I would most definitely recommend it.
Thanks to the one person who read this.
Very entertaining. Like puzzle.
I am a pyraminx enthusiast. My PB on the X-man Bell v1 was 3.22 single and 5.60 ao5. On the first day I had this, I got a 1.82 single and a 4.63 ao5! It is very light and fast, and the corner cutting is insane. My one and only complaint is that the tips are not as good as those on the Bell v1. I 100% reccomend.
This cube is very good but it is 28 dollars. It has a very nice feel, though it does feel a little unstable. Overall a five start but I would like to see a cheaper and more stable v2
This puzzle is a joy to solve. There are people who say you need different types of puzzles dpending on how good you are. This puzzlebrakes those barriers. There are a few issues with this puzzle. The puzzle is quite flexy but I kind of like that. The corner caps are quite challending to get off. At the begining I thought that the white part you see when you pull up but that is part of the core. The way to get it off is by lifting it and feeling around for the groove stick something like a key in that and pop it off. I use yellow on0.6 which means that it is table but I can spam Tps best of both worlds (It goes purple blue green yellow in order of loosest to tightest and 0.8 allows the spring to flew and 0.6 more) For me when I had it on ppurole settings it just felt like whenever I made a U' flick it would always shoot over which would make the puzzle have to do reverse cuts which leads to locky solves. I do not think standard or explorer are good simply because from what I have heard there is not any magnet strenght but if someone knows otherwise feel free to drop a dislike (but please don't :}) The standard version is not custimizable which if you are going to get GAN that is like the primary incentive Explorer does not have core to edge magnets which probable means that your turning is going to feel unstable. I am no expert however on this stuff so just type in GAN pyraminx in depth review on youtube and you should see some video that will pop up telling you more in depth stuff. I should mention I am not a GAN fanboy. One last thing it is cheaper on amazon
A gan piraminx IS the best piraminx on il Time . Very god cube ,faster and a side it's Amazing.
I really enjoy the GAN Pyraminx. Add some fast lube to it and its even better! Magnets are awesome and corner cutting is almost perfect.
