    They are different. Some differences I can see are:
    -The edge pieces on the black cube have an extra bar in the center that the red ones don't
    -the center pieces on the red have a thin extension that the black ones don't have
    -The pieces on the black one are rounded at the corners, whereas the red one is more like a zhanchi (straight-cut)

    That is all a matter of proper tensioning (at least with the bigger SS cubes it is); too loose and it locks.

    The following 51morefun video shows slice moves on the primary color on. (At least, I think it does. My computer's going so slow it makes dial-up seem fast.)



    51morefun also has a video up of the primary color mf8 megaminx v3. Link.

    Double slices indeed. I really wonder about this since the ss 4x4 both versions lock when you do slices.

    Mine has just arrived.

    1st impression, disappointing.

    It turned up unlubed so I fully disassembled it and rebuilt it while lubing.
    I dialled in the tensions for about half an hour and just can't seem to find a good all rounder.

    The inner layers are smooth, the outer layer is catchy and as a result so are the slices.

    =(

    I shall update if I get the cube tensioned just right but at the moment I'm not very hopeful.

    So the outer layer according to you has not improved compared to the previous version dayan/mf8?

    Worse than the 6.6, better than the 6.0. Hasn't popped yet.

    Although this cube looks very sexy, I think I've given up on ball cores.... I just can't seem to get tensions right or something.
    Who am I kidding, I'm totally buying this.

    I don't have this cube in my hands, but I was expecting that it will be locky, because of the pieces.
    Maybe it will be getting better with solves, but I think that it will lock up quite often even after breaking in.

    I'm kinda worried about the PanShi - because it also have different pieces that can cause lock ups.

    We'll se.

    On revision worse than the 6.0.
    I just cannot find a tension where the outer layer is usable.

    Let's hope the 6.7 or V are awesome.
     
  16. Any ideas what exactly is causing the locking? Do you think it might be modded to make it better? Looks like the corners might have the same issue as those on the Dayan megaminx with the outer parts catching on the centres, is that the case? I really want this to be a good cube.

    I have an idea about the locking. I think it's because in the 2x2 core, those pieces aren't rounded. As a result, when the outer layers want to cut, the 2x2 cannot cut with it. So, I guess to counter that one could do the Florian mod on the 2x2 pieces. I'm kinda worried though.
    edit: if only dayan used their new 2x2 in progress for the internal 2x2...
