    So this scramble sure happened as I was eating dinner and watching TV.

    Stickerless vs Stickered

    Yeah, you kinda hit the nail on the head here. Lots of people will jump on the whole stickerless train without acknowledging the different needs for people that stickerless actually doesn't provide. Another big one is that some forms of colorblindness can affect how you recognize the shades, and...

    The Disappointing Cubes Thread

    I was really disappointed with the GAN356 XS. No matter how much I tried setting it up and testing different tensions and lubes, it still felt like a cheap toy. I loved that it was lightweight and easy to turn, but the feeling could not be more opposite of smooth. The magnets are too small and...

    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!

    [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 Discussion and Help 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.
