So, the corner cutting completely sucked OOTB, after some set up it has become better. I don't know which cube I like more, the Tornado V3 or the Gan 12. Both are great but have their pro's and cons.
Nvm I definitely like the Gan 12 more.

EDIT: I did some stuff with the settings and I like it now. So i'm back to not knowing which one to main. Both perform well, but I do like the feel of the Gan a lot more. (when you use Gan cubes for almost 4 years, it becomes hard to switch)

I rolled this to a 2.81 that day but today I saw that all of my solves from that day got deleted, so i'll be grinding to get another good ao50.

I'm curious, what did you do to improve the corner cutting? Screw and springs are both on the second setting on mine, yet it still can't cut past 45 and the reverse still has trouble at 30. I might just need to break it in a bit more.

I think you probably just need to break it in. I have mine on the same settings and it cuts well past 45 and 30. Still, don't dwell on corner cutting too much, It effects turning less then you might think. 45 is plenty to get very good times.

My screws and springs are both on the loosest setting. The corner cutting still isn't wonderful, but it's better than before.

The problem is more about 45 being the furthest it can cut when I'm actually testing it, it's much lower in actual solves.

okay, when I tried that it felt too flexible. I'll try 2 on the springs and 1 on the screws.

I probably just need to break it in more though, thank you

I'm not joking, there are literally 6 3x3's that are tied for my favorite, and I don't know what to main: Gan X, Gan 354, Gan 11, Gan 12, Tornado V3, and the RS3M 2021.

I'm using the Gan 11 rn because I just feel like it, but I was using the 12 this morning, and the 354 yesterday, and I was switching back and forth between the other three all last week.
