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.

It's a good puzzle after adjusting the tensions
OVERVIEW: The Gear Pyraminx looks great, without a doubt. However, a level of turning quality was sacrificed that for me, personally, makes it not worth playing with. I was able to come up with a simple algorithm to turn individual edges that was a modification of the Sledgehammer algorithm. However, the final two edges were very challenging, and every time I was testing approaches, the cube locked up or skipped gears! I lost motivation, and so far, haven't even solved it.
PROS: Cool look, unique challenge.
CONS: Difficulty to pick up and play with. Turning requires an awkward hold of the puzzle.
It is a challenging puzzle but I have been extremely careful with the turning and making sure everything is alright but I still got a lock up and pop on it.
It seems to pop every solve I try to do, it's a great idea, just maybe need a v2
QiYi Gear Pyraminx (Tiled)
This might just be me, but my pyraminx turns awful, one of the edge caps keeps popping off, one of the centers keeps moving when its not supposed too, and also one of center caps also keeps popping off.
JRCuber on YT had trouble with it, and i'm a beginner, so i've been afraid to scramble it so far! lmao
I am in the process of collecting a mass amount of various puzzles and this one fits right in and moves really well
The QiYi gear pyraminx is a really fun and challenging non-WCA puzzle. The quality of the puzzle is very nice, and the tiled pieces give it a nice finish. However, I believe that this puzzle is a gear Halpern-Meier Pyramid, and not a gear pyraminx. Overall though, this puzzle has a challenging solve and nice quality for a relatively low price.
Its a good puzzle the only problem is that sometimes the gears skip also pretty challenging to solve I like it
