Regarding the discussion on the previous page, my Fanxin Master Pyraminx arrived.

It feels like a cheaper clone of Qiyi. Comes only in stickerless, afaik. The size is almost identical, and it also has the deep seated plastic nubs, like Qiyi. The pieces under the tips (should we just call them centers of rotation?) also have primary plastic inside. Overall, like I said, it reminds of Qiyi.

However, there are two notable differences: (1) the click is more subtle, and (2) the puzzle feels much more wobbly and rattly. Hasn't popped on me, but it constantly feels like it might.

It's also cheap, like Lefun / CB, but better than that one.

Overall, I'd rate the Master Pyraminxes like this:

"good" tier: Shengshou and Qiyi - depends on which "feel" you prefer
"mediocre" tier: LanLan and Fanxin - LanLan costs as much as SS and Qiyi so honestly no reason to pick LanLan
"bad" tier: Lefun / CB - aesthetically very pleasing, but has a serious popping problem

I currently main the Weilong GTS3m Ridgeless that I purchased from the Buy/Sell/Trade thread a couple months back (afaik is a Weilong WR as far as rumors are concerned.)

I'm excited for it's actual official release! It is an *amazing* cube I'm very confident a large mass of people will enjoy,
