Product Description

The GAN 356 XS is the successor to the popular GAN 356 X. This new magnetic flagship 3x3 features multiple innovations in 3x3 design, including an adjustable magnet system, a dual-adjustment tension/compression system, and an all plastic core that significantly reduces the weight of the puzzle. These features put together, the GAN 356 XS stands as one of the lightest, most high-tech modern 3x3's on the market. 

Feliks Zemdegs used this puzzle to set the 5.53 second 3x3 world record average in November 2019.

Was good, now it’s trash

When I first got the cube. it had a buttery feeling and the cube was controllable. Few months later, it can’t regular corner cut at all, and it’s flimsy.No matter how many times I clean, lube the cube, or change the settings. My friend also had a gan xs and he had the same problem too. I don’t know what causes regular corner cutting to be so bad. All I know is that I spend 50 dollars for a box. Maybe get another cube, if you don’t want to risk this happening to you.

My son isn’t disappointed.

Clements (United States)

It turns so much easier than my old cube and is so much faster. It has improved my times by about 5 seconds

Awesome 3x3

Great cube

Best cube I've ever owned just wish I could make it tighter. I'm on the tightest setting I think but I'd like more control. Happy with my purchase

Jonah s. (United States)

Before I got this cube, my main was the Rs3 m 2020. With that cube, I was not the greatest at F2L. I would average 1:30 with F2L. (BTW I had just learned) It's not like that was a bad cube, It is just this cube is better in almost all ways. Once I got this cube, my F2L times dropped down almost 20 seconds. This cube was a real game changer.
I recommend this cube for everybody, even the top cubers in the world. This cube may be pricey, but in my opinion, It is worth it.

Reffering to special edition

I absolutly love the gan xs. the corner cutting is very smooth. I only wish it was a bit more flexible. It is very customizable. I would definitly get this but only if you average under 35 seconds. It is very light and the shades are very nice.

David M. (United States)
Still one of the best.

If you want adjustability for under $50 this is an absolute gem. I've put thousands of solves into it so far and it's still in my top three. I am a hoarder of 3x3's so I've been able to compare it to all the other flagships and it is in a league of its own. The options you have for magnet strength are great compared to some cubes where the settings feel similar. I'd recommend this to anyone interested.
