What are your size preferences for 3x3 cubes?

Gan has only made 54mm and 56mm cubes. WIthout an in-between, there's a big difference.

Seems like 56mm is more comfortable while 54mm has better performance. I think that's the trade-off when you choose either.

I don't care for the size of cubes smaller than 6x6. Performance and feel are far more important to me. But after using a a cube like the hays or spark, older 7x7's feel far too big more my taste. I also wish that 6x6s got just a little bit smaller since my grip on them feels just slightly off. Maybe only .5 or 1 millimeter smaller would make a world of difference for me and quite possibly everyone else

3x3 sizes are fine but I want bigger 2x2s, the Aosu WR M is the perfect size for me on 4x4. But 5 and up would benefit by a couple millimeter decrease in size IMO.

I main a 354m and an aosu wrm for 3 and 4 but I am very small for my age (13 and a half and I am about 140) so i just prefer smaller cubes. I think that a 55mm cube would be great because I love the 354 and dislike the size of the x

1mm makes a huge difference when it comes to cubing terms. For 3x3 maybe not so significant, but 5x5 and up it makes a huge difference. I was using a 62 and 63mm 5x5 and to transition to a 61mm cube made centres and 3x3 stage much more satisfying.

For OH I think the cube matters more than the size, I don’t have big hands and I git a 354 in the past beca of this but i prefer other cubes to it. I think the most important thing for OH is having a fast but stable cube. Btw I can average within 10 seconds of my average with a big sail
