The MoYu AoLong V2 is the revised version of the immensely popular and successful MoYu AoLong. The revisions are intended to reduce the possibility of corners twisting accidentally during solves, which was widely publicized during Feliks Zemdegs' would-be world record 3x3 solve.
The changes mainly target the corner-twisting and the overall stability of the cube. The pieces are now a little less bubbly compared to the AoLong V1, and the grooves on the corner pieces have been made bigger. The box has also been redesigned for this version.
Note regarding batches: Our AoLong V2s are from the newest batch, and they all have glossy plastic.

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.

The Moyu Aolong V2 was my first ever speedcube
Out of the box, this cube was really great but then, it slowed down gradually and came worse. The sound of the spring was very loud and the corner cutting was bad. It had been like 1 year and a half so...
Well, I ordered some Angstrom compound v and the cube instantely got great. It went fast, turned smoothly and had a sort of buttery feeling which I only had in My Gan cubes.
In my opinion, this cube is great for cubers who like sort of crunchy cubes.
Although this cube is probably not on par with the current speedcubes I decided to get it because I lost mine.
OOTB: honestly couldn't believe it was an Aolong! It was extremely tight, and nowhere near the performance I remembered it having (Although my previous aolong was a cubicle version). Super sandy and actually kinda blocky.
After Tensioning and Lubing:
The cube performed a whole lot better. I get my average with it easily and I'm glad to have it back. Unless you're a collector I probably wouldn't recommend the cube for this price though, I would put the 16$ towards a Gans Air/Valk/GTS for sure.
Even though this cube came out in 2014 this cube can stand up to good 3x3s today! I got this cube at Nats 2017 and it was used so I don’t know what the person who I bought it from did to it. But whatever he did to it, it was awesome! The stickers were a little banged up tho. The corner cutting on this cube is very good, the speed is very good! I recommend this cube to anyone! Just buy this cube!

This cube came out all the way back in 2014, and I still think this cube is great and relevant IF you are willing to put the work in to get this thing to optimal performance.
Out of the box, this cube was about average, not anything note-worthy. It had a scratchy and dry feel, kind of like a fangshi cube. It was plenty fast though despite the scratchiness and the dryness.
Stickers on this cube out of the box are nothing really special. Just your typical stock MoYu shades. I would highly suggest buying replacement stickers if you plan to use this cube as your main.
Because this cube is an older cube, it takes a VERY long time to break in properly. I did probably 200 - 300 solves before i put any lube in this cube. Despite the insane amount of solves I did to get the initial break in done, it still wasn't quite there. Mine is of course properly broken in now after doing probably around 1,500 solves on it.
Aside form how long it takes to break in, another challenge you will encounter is tensioning and lubricating. It took me a very long time to figure out a good lube and tension combo. I found that slightly looser tensions along with a mix of traxxas 30k on the inner tracks and 50k on the core and outside pieces produces a very fast and smooth puzzle.
Corner cutting is about what you'd expect. Roughly under 45 degrees for both ways (due to my preferred setup). Corner twists are very rare, but I had a single incident where I have corner twisted due to an over aggressive turn solve. Pops are pretty much non-existent on reasonable tensions.
So overall, this cube is great. It has many of the same aspects of performance as many cubes today, and really just needs proper setup to really be brought to its full potential. I would highly suggest buying if you are willing to put in the effort.
I had this cube for about 2 years and has been my main in all my comps.
When I got it, the tensions were about right, and I didn't really need to lube it.
The cube has great corner cutting, and really good speed (it isn't so fast that it turns beyond your aiming point, which is good). I have had pops on this cube, but with the right tensions, it doesn't pop. I haven't had a pop with this cube in almost 2 years. I noticed that M moves are just a tiny tiny bit harder to turn than other cubes, or maybe I just haven't mastered it yet.
This cube feels very solid and high-quality, and I usually don't care too much if it drops on the floor. The stickers on it have lasted as long as its lifetime, and they are plastic stickers, so they don't rip easily. I use Maru lube and sometimes Traxxas 50k Differential Lube. I highly suggest this cube to any cuber, whether experienced or not.
This cube is old but I bought it to add to my collection. I got it in stickerless because I just thought it would look cool. This is not my main because my main is a Gans 356 M but I loved using this puzzle. Out of the box I was nearly getting my average without removing the lube or tensioning it. It did feel a little gummy but after around 50 solves the feeling completely went away. Almost 500 solves later (accurate) This cube was easily getting my average after relubing and a little tensioning. I hate using this word because it is overused but this cube definitely deserves the term "buttery." It is fast, controllable, buttery, and not that loud. And for $15 dollars this is a steal! 5/5 EZ
Disclaimer: I'm not exactly a cube connoisseur and haven't had the opportunity to try too many other cubes, but I've had enough experience cubing to post an honest and unbiased review.
Out of the box: I was not impressed right out of the box. My first solve with the cube and factory lube was slow and the cube felt almost papery. It was very tight and basically what you would expect out of a $15 cube. I'm sure after breaking it in with a few hundred solves some of this discomfort would go away, but regardless, I was displeased.
My setup: I purchased Cubicle Labs 3x3 Magnet Kit - Lite, 10cc Cubicle Silicone Lube - Weight 4, and Lubicle Silk (links below as well as tutorials). First I magnetized the pieces, then I used the Weight 4 lube to lubricate the core (I've heard several tutorials say to use a weight 5, but this was my first time using cubicle silicone lube so I decided to err on the side of caution. It's up to you whether you want to use weight 4 or 5.), finally I put 2 drops of Silk in between the cracks of the fully assembled cube. Adjusted tensions to be a little looser than factory set-up.
Post-Setup Review: It's a beautiful, wonderful, magical work of art. After installing the magnet kit and lubing it all up, it spun around as fast as my fingers could move it. It looked as smooth and steady as any $50 magnet cube on the market. Corner cutting and reverse corner cutting is spectacular (however, this is basically expected from a speed cube these days) and the cube feels fast but very controllable. The cube isn't obnoxiously loud any more either.
Summary: Mediocre speed cube out of the box, but with an additional $10 of custom set-up, you have a $50 cube that's a force to be reckoned with.
I ordered this professionally lubed and this is great no break in needed for this and i expect after 100 solves this will be better than most cubes.
This cube is a little heavy and I’m not a huge fan of the 57 mm. I have small hands as I am only 13 years old. It is super clacky and the corners in mine are a bit lose and corner flip EVERY SINGLE SOLVE. I have a pretty clean turning style, too. This is currently my main, but I am switching to the new Gan 356 X. This cube is great for beginner speed cubers, but I would rather recommend something else.
P.S.-I set it up with Maru and Silk, which work well, but still don’t add up to something like a MGC2
