Got this cube today. It's really good, definitely main potential for world class cubers.

The best way to describe it is, it is a mix between the thunderclap and the gans 356. It has a little bit of the flimsyness of the 356, but not as much.
The feeling is the same as the thunderclap. Algorithms flow really nice on it. Same as the yuexiao it can cornercut anywere. (Reverse is rediciously good, over line to line)

The cube is on the faster side, I'll try to put the harder gans springs in it + traxxas 50k. In my opinion longer springs make cubes hold a little bit better together and make them more stable.

Thanks for reading, have a nice day :)

How are corner twists? The florian holes look ridiculously large which makes it seem unstable and prone to twisting.

No, i didn't had a singe cornertwist. If you look closely the corners are more sqared of than on the thunderclap or an aolong. But i did only about 20 solves and 200 T-Perms :) .
Oh, and i swapped the springs to gans S9 i think (the softest ones) and the cube is even better now.

This cube might be my main, if only thery wasn't the yuexiao. :) We will see what times i get with it. I average about 15 seconds.
