I haven't anything negative to say about the cube other than I wish it was 56mm, and had a bit tighter elasticity settings. I love the simplistic mechanism, the colors help because the font is microscopic. I enjoy the 5 magnet settings because my performance is better on the second strongest setting. At first I had the cube with minimal lube, like my other cubes, but it was still way too fast. Then after I used a ton of lube to slow it down I started getting PBs and felt comfortable. At first my cube wouldn't corner cut at all, but after breaking in its not too far off a Gan 11m.
I almost forgot to mention it's one of the quietest cubes I own, a bit louder than my Zhanchi pro. I think it would be a bit quieter if I could lube the core and springs tho. I also really enjoy the shades on this cube. Probably the best for me and I'm mildly colorblind so its hard sometimes. It has dark green and red with a bright yellow and orange right in the middle. The finish is half matte, but gets more glossy over time. This is probably the best technique as it increases scratch resistance but looks and feels pretty good.
Great turn speed but the corner cutting isn't great.
I really like the ability to customize the tension, magnet strength and elasticity.
This is a really good cube for the price.
This is an amazing cube and I Maine’s it as soon as I felt it but after about an hour of use my magnets started getting real clicky on my setting
amazing, it feels kinda like a gan cube in a way, if you like smaller fast and quite cubes please get this, it’s so worth it
A bit loose and slow out of the box. At first I didn't think of this as a good cube, but after adding some DNM-37 (6 drops) it sped up immediately and instantly became my main. Decent corner-cutting too. The cube is also very silent, which is great. Overall, a very good cube
X-Man Tornado V2 3x3
This cube is amazing with a softer plush feel and decent corner cutting. I'll be honest, I apparently am pretty accurate because I rarely get lock ups other people have mentioned in videos or while using my cube, specifically the reverse corner cutting.
This cube is silent, which is a huge plus for me.
The cube definitely isn't for everyone, the plushy feel bothers most people I know who want that solid snap as the layers line up. I'm not so concerned with that.
I did have issues getting good times on the cube until I finally got it broken in and got into a groove with it. I'd say it took around 250 solves to get it going after I got it set up the way I like.
Anyway, its my go-to now for most solving sessions.
I just got in to cubeing and it is amazing because Of all the options that you have with the cube and after I get set up it is perfect
It is a great product, nice turns, good magnets, over all best cube!
For some perspective, I'm coming off of having used a Little Magic M for just about 2 years as my main, and I average around 14 seconds, so I'm by no means a professional solver.
What stuck out to me about this cube immediately was how quiet it is, and how small it is, both pluses in my book (particularly given my smaller hands). This cube to me feels incredibly stable and quick, which is something I'm really enjoying. My gut instinct on this puzzle was to crank the magnets up to full strength, as I like them strong. For once, these magnets were too strong for me, which was interesting. On stock tension/spring compression, the best thing I could compare the full magnet strength to is the Bell V1 tips with the extra magnet installed, it was right around that strength. Once I loosened the puzzle to setting 2, and left the spring compression at 3, I found that the magnets became the ideal strength (the 4th strongest setting for magnets was a titch light for me on stock tensions), and the puzzle flowed incredibly well. It still feels pretty compact to me, which is a nice feeling. Corner cutting is solid, coming around 45º forward, line to line backwards. This cube has ousted my Little Magic M as my main
In short, I recommend this cube highly. I feel as though there are ideal settings for pretty much every solver.
