    how does it play?
     
  3. It's a pretty good cube actually.

    Cuts 45 degrees sometimes more

    Reverse corner cuts a 3/4 of a peice.

    Turns really smooth and fast

    Never Pops or Locks up.

    I don't have any pictures of the mods, but as far as I can remember, I have modded my V5 using MeMyselfandPi's mod, my V7 which I made into an adjustable core (not sure if you would really call that a mod), my Rubik's brand 3x3 which i have done numerous mods on, my A5 which I did the Haiyan Memory mod on, and my old Rubik's 4x4 (broke, don't have it any more) which I did the squircle mod on. There are probably more mods that I've done that I don't remember, I'll probably put them in later. I'll also probably do more mods in the future, I might do the squircle mod on my Mini QJ.

    are you happy with your "elite" or do you wish that you had done something different?

    I once modded a rubik's 3x3 into some sort of shape (I think I was half-truncated cube), but I put a ton of epoxy into it, so it weighs like as much as a v-7, and I never stickered it, so it was kind of a fail. I did make a Siamese cube though.

    This is unnecessary because there is very little friction at that part of the corner piece.

    The 48-point edge mod is only to reduce the clickeyness, or is it for other things like corner cuts and turning speed?
     
  13. It can be used to improve speed as well.
     
  14. It helps w/ the reverse corner cutting.
     
  15. If I were to do this over again I wish I would've taken more time to improve the general rounding "mod" of it.

    It reduced popping for me.
    I modded my GuHong into an Ultimate:

    (no pictures, sorry)
    and what went from a GuHong that popped once every 7 solves (tensions were right and even) went to a cube that hasn't popped at all.
    The Ultimate is also on looser tensions too.

    Modded on right, normal on left.

    This mod on a storebought improves corner cutting.
