So out of the box it feels really nice but is kinda slugish, so i figured i would set it up, after setup this cube is even worse, the speed has not changed at all, not even with a faster set up, the lube doesnt spread properly, and overall just makes it bad, the only good thing i can say about it is that it looks nice, i would not recommend this cube to anybody unless its for collection
OOTB this cube was AMAZING. It was so buttery smooth and I instantly broke my pb. I really liked the sticker shades, but after a few days they started chipping and peeling off. I decided to switch out the GES springs that came stock (green) for the yellow ones. Of course this reduced corner twisting but it wasn't a really big problem. The magnets are medium to strong just the way like it. After a few months, I had done thousands of solves on this cube and then the cube started feeling scratchy and I got some pretty bad lockups when turning fast. I also got a few pops while solving, but that might be because i have a pretty rough turning style. I would only recommend this cube if you have a much more relaxed turning style. Personally i give this cube a 6/10
Still very good! Better with MAX combination. I will keep using it as my OH main and also I won a OH podium using it. It's still a highly- anticipated puzzle! Plus the price is now $10 cheaper(39.99)!!!
This cube was my first GAN puzzle. When I got it, I noticed that it was not overly smooth, but the turning is still very fluid. However, that did not last. After a couple of months I noticed that it started to get scratchier and solves were not very smooth.
The magnets in this cube are the perfect strength, although it is stronger than my other puzzles. The stickers are also not very durable, but are decent.
I set this up by lubing it and replacing the GES springs to yellow, although pops were more common after that.
This cube is my main, although it is quite outdated, so I might get a better GAN 3x3.
The cube was sandy out of the box with a few stickers snagged already. I lube with silk and weigh 3 and looses it and the performance was better. I am not sure it will be my main. But definitely a strong competitor
do i even have to have to write a review its amazing out of the box but if you want it faster i recommend some lube
I Had a weilong gts2m and i thought nothing could replace that then came the X i love it, it was an instant main then came the XS it was an instant main then i ordered this cube just for collection and now i hate to admit it i like stickered 3x3 better than stickerless this is now my instant main i want a stickerless X to be mt main but every time i solve with it, it just doesn't feel as good get this you won't regret it!
When I spin this cube, first It was super fast. Second, stickers color are extremely bright and beautiful. So, It cames to main!!! So, I want to say, just buy it and use it. It will be awesome.
i actually bought this of another website but i will write a review here. the GES v3 is much better than the GES v2 on the gans 356 air sm i lubed it with DNM 37 and it became very fast only thing that you can improve GAN THIS THING CONSUMES LUBE!!!!!!!!!!! the cube became sandy after like 30 solves the bag is very nice and great for keeping your cubes in only down side in my opinion is that it is a bit big for my hands so i am thinking to get the Gan 354 m i wish there was a stickerless version of the sm overall it is a very good cube for big hands
At first, it felt too fast a little unstable. After I put yellow nuts, weight 4 and compound X it felt amazing! It was smooth and controllable. After 2 days messing with the cube, I broke my one-handed PB single: 12.8 and my one-handed PB average: 17.68. Overall the new SM has a unique feel and think you should give it a try:)))))
