My item took long to arrive but everything pretty much was excellent
The cube is extremely fast out of the box without setup. I thought to put the mystic on the pieces and max command on the core which made even faster than I thought. Overall a very good cube and cheap only $28.
This cube is unstable to the point of being unusable. If for some reason you want a non-magnetic cube, both the MeiLong and Little Magic are infinitely better for 1/3 the price. If you want a cheaper cube that has adjustable tensions, just buy the RS3 M 2020 instead and you'll have something that has more than two (awful) settings and is actually able to be set up like a proper speed cube.
When i first got this cube, i turned it slowly, and it was smooth as heck. But, with faster turns, it felt rather as it had no lube at all. There was a surplus of lube, even on the outside. The corner cutting is excellent, but when i turn, i seem to lock up a lot. To recap, It is smooth, but rough, corner cutting is good, but there is a lot of lockups.
The Gan 356 RS is one of the best 3x3s it is much smoother than I expected It is very cheap as well for a third of the price it is 99% of the XS 10/10 would recommend great 3x3
After adding magnets to my gan rs, i would describe this cube as the perfect gan cube. The feeling and weight of the gan x with the speed and light turning of the gan xs makes this my favorite gan cube. I would recommend this cube to any cuber who is looking for a alternate to the gan xs or gan .
Great cube, needs magnets to add stability though. After magnetizing it, it was great
This cube is fairly slippery and unstable, but has that classic, smooth GAN feel. It's okay without magnets. 3/5. Not worth the $17, unless..
If you magnetized it yourself (I used the strong cubicle magnet kit, it works extremely well with this cube and I HIGHLY reccommend buying this and the magnet kit), then the stability goes up, and makes this just like a normal GAN cube. The best way I can describe it, is if you took a GAN XS, and a GAN air, and mixed them into one puzzle. This cube feels extremely nice and is a joy to turn and use. After using this cube for a bit, I'm glad to say this ($17 cube + $8 magnet kit =) $25 cube is my new main. That being said, if this is your first time magnetizing a cube, I wouldn't reccommend using this one, as this is one of the more expensive cubes you can magnetize. I'd try something like a Little Magic or Meilong to start off. Once you're confident enough in magnetizing cubes, you can try the GAN RS. You will not be disappointed! 5/5 cube magnetized.
Ok my review is mixed, the cube is unstable, kinda morphable and can barely cut 45*. If you ask me buy the thunderclap v3 m or the Mf3rs3 m
I love this cube so much, I learned F2L and OLL on it! It's sooo much better with magnets, but if you go to all that trouble the price is around $25 if you get the kit from the Cubicle (get the strong kit). But for $1 more, you can get the Gan 354 M lite. And if it's your first time magnetizing a cube I would go with the M instead.
BTW if you already have it and want to put in magnets, make sure the caps for the pieces fit on every piece, because the cubicle magnets are a little too big for this cube and might not let you put the caps back on again.
