I prefer slower, more stable cubes than most cubers, so I really like this cube. Compared to the YLM I think it has a higher quality, more solid feel. It comes very dry out of the box, but I had some Speed 2 on hand to fix that. Even lubed it is slower than a YLM, but I feel like the YLM is difficult to control, and I prefer the 3C. It is my top pick for budget cube.
Works great for the price the shipping took a bit but I would buy again
Very good construction. Excellent budget cube
A little catchy from how loose it is and dry but great cube. Recommended for force cubes
Corner cuts like a BOSS and it is turns so smooth who knew a 5 dollar budget cube would become my new main
So, I magnetized this, do I will split this review into two parts.
Unsetup: Papery and soft, cornercutting at just over 45° forward and slightly under line to line reverse, with pretty good stock tensions. I averaged about a second slower than my average with my gts3m.
Setup and magnetized: I magnetized it with the cubicle strong magnet kit in the edges and lite in the corners. I lubed it with 50k in the core and on the tracks and the white angstrom goop and dnm-37 in the pieces. The cube is now a moderate speed and is quite stable, and still has the soft feeling even after setup. The 55mm is really good for OH, and is probably my new main.
i know a lot of people would be wondering if this meilong 3c is better than the original meilong. the answer is yes! its smoother and has a better grip. the original was already good, so if you want a budget cube, or just wanted to magnetize a meilong cube, choose this one. on a side note, a magnetized meilong 3c performs extremely well for cheap as well! i highly recommend this puzzle.
I was watching Cube Solve Hero's video on this cube and magnetizing it, and decided to do the same myself.
To be honest, I didnt like it at all when I first opened it without any setting up, so if you dont like doing that, dont buy this. but I got strong magnets from the cubicle for them, which are very good, by the way, and put them in. After sleeping and letting them dry and putting the cube back together, it blew me away! The magnets made it click into place after turning, and even before tensioning I had very different thoughts. I then lubed it with silk on the actual pieces, mystic on the tracks, and wt 5 on the core, and did some tensioning, as well. I feel like I do just as well on it as I do on my Celeritas gts3m. My only downside is that it has frosted plastic, and it slips out of my hands easily. Here are my reviews out of 5 stars for every category.
Speed: 4/5. I have two turning styles, one is fast and relies on cornercutting, and the other is slow and relies on fluidity. It does well for either, and I think the slight slowdown saves me from overshooting
Weight: 3/5. I would think some people would think this is heavy and others light. It feels nice just holding it
Magnet strength: 4/5. I think these are pretty light, but they also have a great magnetic bump
Shades: 5/5. They have the best that I have ever seen, maybe besides the little magic. They contrast really well
The lower numbers dont mean they're bad. Just on a 1-5 scale for the first three.
I'm starting a cubing club so I ordered a handful of these to give to new members. Unfortunately, I made that purchase at the price of $4 a cube when I could have waited a couple of days for the -$1 sale and gotten a whole extra cube for the same price. This cube goes on sale all the time, and I would advise against my mistake.
Only buy more than one of these if they're on sale. You can wait.
this is amazing
