    I'd say lanlan. The ES doesn't seem to cut corners as well (I've watched a lot of comparisons and reviews).

    The rubiks is the worst! Seriously my rubiks 2x2 is the worst cube I've ever had in my hands, it can't even cut NOTHING! (almost) :rolleyes:

    But yeah, the LL is awesome

    I decided to try that on my lanlan, but I only had a SINGLE pen with that sort of spring in the ENTIRE house. I mean wtf!? So now it has 2 pensprings and 1 normal haha :D I can't feel where the regular is though so it's fine

    I haven't tried a diansheng, but rubi's is horrific, ES overturns too easily, and I just got my LL yesterday and it is AMAZING!! (but the purple take a bit of time to get used to) and it dropped my average by over a second!

    LanLan. Enough said.

    PS: I put cubesmith fluorescent stickers on my LanLan, and silicone in it. Those are the only mods I have done. It is amazing.

    LanLan and Ghost Hand are the best. Just flip a coin to decide :)

    the mod is very good, apparently the original lanlan springs obstruct turning, so when replaced with pen springs, it turns much better

    All you have to do is flip the spring if that happens, loosens the tension without creating more pops!!
