There wish Lin dropped a sub 4 U.
So meilong is gts2? Wow that feels silly for $10.

How hard is it, honestly, for me, a 13 yo boy, to magnetise a 4x4? It would be my first time magnetising a cube and I would like these factors: time, money, resources available, and where do I buy the magnets (Australia)?
It's easy to magnetize a Meilong yourself.

The best factory magnetic budget 4x4 is the Yuxin Little Magic but it's not fast.
As Tabe said, it is not hard to magnetize a 4x4.

I think that depends though. I junked a couple 4x4s before becuase I magnetize them wrong. Also I think it will be cheaper to simply buy factory magnetized Meilong since the cube is already so cheap.
But there isn't a meilong 4x4m mass produced yet.

Ok. Ugh. Now I'm back to the start again!! These conversations seem to go around forever. Two days time for us to all discuss this before I make my final decision!
True. That’s the case when speculations are around a new cube. @Fukuoka Kengo James , do you know Moyu have posts about Meilong 4x4 M on any of their social media? I can’t seem to access some.

I used this guide:


But I have to add that I did take the 4x4x4 apart completely, also because I wanted to experience this and lube it and such. It took me over an hour to put the whole thing back together. To make it easier on yourself, I recommend putting tape on the centers to keep them in place and only take out edges and corners, like this. Credits to my friend Niels for giving me this tip.

I recommend N35 4x2 for the outer layer and N35 4x1 for the inner layer.

I also asked MoYu directly if they are planning on making a MeiLong 4 M. So far all of this has been speculation. I personally doubt they are going to do it. Their flagship line is magnetic, and they of course prefer people to buy those if they want something magnetic.

Oh. I do think Meilong’s inner layer is better than anything out there.

Are the inner layer magnets noticeably stronger than the outer layer magnets?
