    This puzzle really isn't for me. I get inconsistent times on it and I don't particularly enjoy the feel. Objectively, it is a great puzzle though. I shared some of my thoughts in the video below. It is the last thing I opened in the video and I also gave a more in-depth opinion over a (bad) 4.44 AO12.

    I am so glad! It is growing on me now, but I still prefer the Bell.

    Would you recommend this puzzle to someone who uses the OG Moyu and Shengshou?

    It is easily the best Pyraminx with ball bearings, but I definitely think the Bell is better. The Bell is also usable out of the box and the MeiChi is a bit tricky to set up. It also needs to be relubed every few hundred solves due to the hard plastic.

    I've tried both the Bell and the Magnetic MoYu at a Comp and, in my honest opinion, I didn't like the magnets very much. Don't get me wrong, I do prefer the magnets in 3x3, 2x2, and even skewb (I use the X-man wingy), but for some reason, I favor a physical "click" in a pyraminx, which is why I am reluctant to upgrade from the standard MoYu, because there hasn't been any good ball bearing pyraminxes. I think this one is the one to upgrade too. I've been hearing good reviews, but I want to pursue without any doubt.

    Respectable and honest opinion though!

    I feel the same way. I still use an original Shengshou because of the super-strong click.
