    @chron0s That's awesome. The feeling of the factory GTS2 M isn't bad, so I'm hoping the magnet strength will be on the stronger side.

    If you can, do you think you can get a measurement of the plastic thickness to help with my spreadsheet? I'm assuming it'll be similar to the Little Magic. However, it doesn't look like I'm getting a HuangLong in a while. I'd appreciate it! :]

    I feel like this strength is a good fit for this cube (as is the n35 4x2) - neither are 'lite' but the n38 4x1.5 is a little mellower without losing the tactile feedback that I prefer. I know people prefer a range of strengths so YMMV. I have the magnetic version on preorder so I'll post to the thread when I get it to say what the stock magnets feel like.

    teh yoshi lemme get myself a caliper and get back to you! Might take me a while but I'll be sure to get measurements for as many cubes as possible once I do.

    Hello. Just got my moyu aoshi gts 6x6 in the mail today. I planned to use 5x1 mm n50 and n35, and 3x2 mm n35 magnets in it, but they have made slots for magnet, so they won`t fit. Looks like I have to order some new magnets now. (I enjoy magnetizing, so I always order non magnetic cubes). Anyway, the slots fit 4x2/4x1.5 in corner/edge, 4x1.5 in outer edges, and 4x1 in the middle layer. But i need to know the strength of the magnets they use (or which I should use). I used 5x1 n50 in my gts2, and that is perfect for me. So need something similar in feeling. Any suggestions?

    Oh no. Someone put that I recommend an N48 4x2 for a Gan Air???? No!!!! Have never said that. That cube is so free flowing and light that the highest strength magnet I'd ever use is an N35 4x1.7, opting really for the 4x1.5. The factory magnetized Air SM uses an N50 or 52 3x2. There's no need for more strength than that, imo.
    I haven't looked at the rest of the list because it's hard to view on my iPhone. Just wanted to correct that.

    Yikes, sorry about that. :( Looking back, I see I misread the description on your video. It said you used "48 N35 4mm x 2mm" and I somehow interpreted that as N48 4x2. I'm real sorry.

    No problem. And those were N35 "4x2" from magnets365 for the Gan Air, which actually measure 4x1.7.
    I always liked the N48 4x2s in the original Weilong GTS though.

    I got a few new cubes, so I added some more updates and measurements to my spreadsheet. I also made a massive order of cubes that should come in within a week or so, so I should have more measurements handy! Unfortunately, the magnets themselves can't come soon enough!

    In the meantime, please let me know if any of you got some plastic measurements, recommendations, or other notes I can add. :]

    Here
    Nice idea @teh yoshi

    I have a Warrior W M. Its my main, I used 4x1.5 N38. Its just slighty stronger than Cubicle Premuim GTS2M Lite. Feel free to ask any more information.

    Thanks! And hey, I've magnetized a Warrior W, too, and I love it. It's my immediate backup main next to my GTS2 I also magnetized. I put N42 5x1s in both of them.

    I think I'm beginning to like N42 5x1 magnets in almost any 3x3...
