    Interesting, kinda looks like a Weilong GTS and a Zhanchi combined. Also, there seems to be a Lunhui 2017. lets see how these turn out.

    Cool, looks a lot like an AoLong GT from the outside. Hopefully it's good!

    What are the odds that this is revolutionary like magnets?

    It's under $8 so not aiming at the high end. I'm curious to see how it will turn out just because Zhanchi was my first speed cube back in 2012 and I have a fondness for it. Dayan was revolutionary at that time and I hope this new cube is a success.

    I'm just excited so I have an excuse to get a LunHui.
     
  11. It says on lightake it's 57mm, I'm used to 55.5 because that or 56 is the normal size for most modern speedcubes

    Dude don't be so picky it's only one and a half mm at most. This is placebo at its finest, lmao

    Have you tried a 57mm cube? The size is noticeably different.

    I remember the days were 57 was the standard. The old Lunhui was actually 55mm, so now I'm curious if the new one will be the same size.

    The 55mm Zhanchi was wonderful, a nice size and smoother than the 57mm.

    56mm seems to be preferred for the top cubes now like Valk and GTS, but many others are still 57mm. I would say 57mm is still the standard, and the recent 56mm cubes are the exception, for now.
