Thanks for the quick response. Will definitely have to give that a try when my Meilong arrives.

I just bought a second MeiLong 4 to do exactly that. 4x2 in the outer layer, 4x1 in the inner layer. All N35. I'll be doing that next weekend. My friend did it and he thinks it's awesome.
If my memory serves me right, I think those are the magnets that Speedcubereview used and he really liked it. "Possibly main-worthy".

That is correct. He did use it as his main, except it got disallowed due to two polished pieces, so I think he went with his backup MeiLong 4 M that MoYu sent him. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Except SCR has no one "main" for anything, so it's just whatever cube he likes at that moment. He did really like the MeiLong 4 M though. :)

The Valk 4 in my opinion is the best but you have to literally take out each spring and stretch them out. This will fix the weird catching problem. The Moyu Aosu GTS2M is the best if you dont want to do that
I've found after breaking in my Valk 4 that the catching has improved enough that I don't really notice it any more, but I may try this if I notice it again.

Do you know if the other springs that come in the box are the same or if they may also help?

I recommend putting 4x2 N35 in the outer layer and 4x1 N35 in the inner layer. I used 4x1.5 in the inner layer and it's just a bit too strong.
What about 4x2 N35 in the outer layer and 5x1 N35 in the inner layer? 5x1 N35 is in between the strength of 4x1 N35 and 4x1.5 N35.

A few months ago, I tried an Aosu GTSM at a comp a few months ago, and it was amazing. Better than the GTS2M in my opinion. Unfortunately they are not sold anymore besides MoYu website. Has anyone found a website that sells them in the US with reasonable shipping? CubeDepot has them, but not in stickerless; I can only use stickerless.
