    You know what? Screw it, I'll take it. At this point, QiYi just needs to make ANY 3x3.

    Man, I feel like QiYi is stalling and straight up forgot how to make a new decent 3x3 anymore. We're never getting the Elite, are we?

    Thanks for this! Yeah, you are right, I didn't consider any of that before. I really hope to hear a thorough review, especially after it's broken in. I think I will buy it, anyway!

    Dang, I didn't expect this to be this expensive. It's about the highest I'm willing to pay, maybe even a little more. How is this cube, by the way?

    Welp, I'm stoked! Hopefully I'll still be in Taiwan by the time this releases so I can buy it firsthand! Also, wow, the black version looks sick!

    Where do you purchase your cubes from?

    Z Cube somehow not being one of the top options is incredibly cursed.

    I'm in Taichung, so that'll be pretty far, but I'll have to check it out eventually. Thanks!

    Hey, I'm in Taiwan. Is there any place I can try/buy this cube? I'm really looking forward to it!

    [Help Thread] GAN 356 air GES problem

    Sounds like the nut is stripped. GES nuts are known to do this, sadly. I've had at least two nuts become stripped on me so far over the dozens of GAN cubes I've dealt with selling at comps. You have no choice but to get a replacement.

    Magnets thread

    Which cube are you magnetizing? I think that setup sounds fine, but make sure the plastic thickness is roughly the same throughout the cube, otherwise using different magnets can have unintended consequences. In my opinion, odd-layered cubes can get away with having the same strength throughout...

    Magnet polarity change.

    It's been done.

    Magnets thread

    I think I disagree. The feeling between N35 and N38 is very significant compared to N38 and N40/N42. I magnetized my YLM6 with N38 4x1.5 and N38 4x1 and it came out phenomenal. The strength feels similar to what the AoShi GTS or Shadow has, maybe even a tad stronger. The problem is that...

    I Made A Magnetic Kilominx. Sort Of.

    Hey, this is actually pretty amazing! It's a real shame we don't have much choice in the way of kibiminx hardware. In fact, we only have TWO choices between the ShengShou black and the FanXin (CubeStyle) stickerless. The internals are nearly identical, the only difference I could spot between...

    Trying To Magnetize A Kilominx

    It may be much more difficult than you realize. Since it is an even-ordered puzzle (compare to a 2x2 or 4x4 cube), you'll run into a situation where, for example, if you simply place single magnets in each corner and edge, you'll get polarities mixed up. As it is an even-ordered puzzle, all...

    Magnets thread

    You can find N42 5x1 on AliExpress. You can also find N45 5x1 on Supramagnets. They're from China, so surely they'll ship internationally. The difference in strength from N42 5x1 is hardly noticeable to basically negligent.
