anyone here have qiyi warrior w i ordered it but im kinda sceptic i watched some reviews but in one video someone say its good and in some other video someone say its bad
qiyi warrior w is good for its price and it is just usable. corner cutting is not that great. its performance is almost at the same level as the mf3rs.

It's interesting that the Kylin has zero votes so far. I like its feel and look very much (more than the Yulong). I just like the RS3M more. I solve on the Kylin frequently because of its unique look and feel.

Did anyone else not vote for the Kylin, but still like it?
yuxin kylin v2m is a very good cube, but there are still other cubes better than it.

I am surprised about the poll result too. Many people are saying that they love the yuxin kylin v2m, while it got zero vote! For the mf3rs2m, I thought it is a bit out dated, as there is the mf3rs3m. But it got 4 votes!

For me Yulong v2m is locking up to much. Every cuber has his own style of turning, so you can't satisfy everyone with only 1 cube ;)
My favourite is GTS2M for me it's better than GTS3M.

My Yulong V2 doesn't lock up, but it cornertwists, so I need to tighten it. Maybe after I tighten it it'll lock up more, we'll see. :)
how often do you get corner twist on the yj yulong v2m? Is this issue making the solves in comps prone to get DNFs?

I haven't taken it to a comp yet, I just got the cube Wednesday. If I am careful on F' moves when doing RUR'F' then it's OK.
so if we want to avoid getting corner twist on the yj yulong v2m, we have to adjust our turning style.
will extreme angle corner cutting (over 45) cause corner twist?

Corner twisting only happened at first on the yulong v2m, because I have a forceful turn style. But yeah corner cutting is nuts, it doesn't effect the twisting though...

I am so slow that I have only gotten two corner twists ever: one on a very, very loose Guanglong, and one on the Yulong v2m. I was not doing anything noticeably unusual to the Yulong when the corner twisted - it was seemingly random, during a normal turn. I've tightened it, but it's still very easy to twist the corners by hand.

I also find that the Yulong catches too much for me. It doesn't stop my solve, but it throws me off and is annoying. Between the Kylin and the Yulong, I prefer the Kylin because it is so much smoother, even though it is slower.

Edit: I just tightened the Yulong some more, and it seems to help with the catching, while retaining its speed. I'll spend some more time with this cube, but it still doesnt feel great. I was hoping it could be my cheap "commuting main," so I don't have to worry if i drop it on the sidewalk and break it.

I think I prefer the Kylin too. I did 50 solves on the Yulong today and there's just something about it. It's very heavy, but very fast. I dunno, it's a great cube, but there's just something off about it.

Is the turning of the yuxin kylin v2m similar to the yuxin little magic m?
