Our Promise to You

All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.

Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

It's fast, quiet, and very customizable. My setup is using green GES nuts and strong magnets (these happen to be the parts that were already in the cube out of the box). Added a little Traxxas 30k and DNM 37 when the factory lubricant wore out, and after using this cube for a few weeks I can't go back to any other cube- it's simply the best I've ever used.

aahh , the GAN 'X' ipgV5. this cube is my favorite of the GAN series so far.

first and foremost, the ability to fine tune the hand feel !

Digital vs analog , the 'X' ipgV5 is the analog cube whereas the GES type gives 'steps in the handfeel as low resolution digital.

GAN , if you are listening .....please make the finish optional on all of your cubes , I as well as many others do NOT
like the 'frosted' finish. I do not know if I was lucky but my 'X' came with beautiful shiny mirror like non frosted finish and I love it!

The only negative so far , it is not as light as the XS ;-)

I am very happy with my GAN 356 X ipgV5 and highly recommend it to those that want to split hairs on hand feel settings!

I own the 356x ges , 356x ipgv5 , 356xs and can say you cannot go wrong with any of these as they are all very good.

One of these days I shall do a video detailing the small differences between these.

Amazing but shipping was next level fast

I ordered this cube and a 4x4 on Friday, cubicle sent me a text saying we will notify you when it ships. Exactly five min. later they shipped it and it arrived Monday. But the cube was my instant main

It's good, but I don't know why its worth 50$

I really enjoy turning this cube, but so many cubes are better than this! I get better times on my Yulong v2 than this cube because it's so slow. My hands get tired sometimes when I turn it. Don't buy this! There are so many better cubes, like an Rs3 2020 or even a 6 dollar meilong m.


This is the best cube I have and it is my instant main.

Good cube, but

I wanted to like this cube more than I do. For sure, it's a really cool piece of engineering. It's extremely customizable, and you can get it to pretty much any feeling you want. Corner cutting is amazing, actual cube is smooth and buttery turning, and it's generally one of the most aesthetically pleasing cubes I've seen.

Even with all the good stuff, I have some problems with it that take the 5th star away. I've never had a cube that eats through lube like this one. I've tried multiple setups with it (the best of which was 30k on the core, mix of DNM37 and Silk on the pieces). But, and I don't know if it's because of the honeycomb pattern or what, but it'll start slowing down again within like 10-15 solves, and it's really noticeable. Also, I couldn't quite find the "sweet spot" for my own turning style (disclaimer: I'm a roux solver), especially when doing slices. It either feels too slow or too unstable.

As someone who likes faster cubes, my WR M remains my main. But honestly, I also like my Valk 3 and GTS 3 more as well. All three of which you can get for significantly less money.

Great Cube

I got this cube for Christmas, and I have got to say, it's pretty good. Very smooth finish, and a nice upgrade from my GTS2M. For some reason the cube was lubed, even though "Santa" didn't order lube. OOTB, it's kind of rough, but it gets smoother as you go along. However, it did take me a while to figure out what the pamphlets were saying (even though I can read and speak Chinese). Great cube overall, and I definately would recommend this.

Good, but the GTS3M is better. (My opinion)

So, This cube is not mine, it is my friend's. However, I am an avid cuber and he wanted me to set it up. After doing so, I did some solves. This cube has an incredible anti - pop, and absolutely exemplary (Yes I'm a nerd) corner cutting. It is incredibly fast, and buttery smooth. However, the GTS3M is faster, has (Again, my opinion) better corner cutting, and is still just as smooth. Now to hardware. The GES tensioning and spring swap are good, but the GTS3M is faster at it. The magnet capsule however, is still legendary. (The magnets aren't super effective though) All in all, this is a fantastic cube, but be careful when you buy it! It is literally one of the most expensive 3x3s ever. If you do not have the money, get the GTS3M. If you do have the money, unless you are not that fast a turner, I do not really recommend this over the GTS3M. (Keyword: OVER the GTS3M) Over other cubes, definitely invest. Just because I think the GTS3M is better for me, does not mean it will be for you. It's just personal preference.

Good But can be better

The cube magnet slots are amazing. But they just drop
And many times i would lose 1 or 2 capsules.
Plus it takes quite a Long time for
It to Chang springs and magnets.

On the bright side.
It it is finally set up. The cube is literally amazing
Great corner cutting
Smooth and fluid and totally main worthy
I would recommend in to anyone who wants the best 3 by 3.
So i rank 4/5

Insta main

What else is there to say, it’s really good, corner cut is good, everything is good.
