If this is the same magnet system as the EDM, Gan could get sued by moyu. Emphasis on could. But the cubing community is all about sharing knowledge and helping everyone to improve, right? And even though both of them are big business, and we don't know if gan had permission, or if it was a happy coincidence, it's about sharing the knowledge.

It has 3 settings compared to Moyu's 2. I think the spring compression was a step in the right direction

I think we can finally stop comparing GAN to Apple based on the notion that Apple's schtick is innovation, not reproduction.

I'd be interested in knowing how much the XS is as the EDM is actually quite an affordable puzzle.

Maybe i will get the XS. My only question is will the magnets change strength within solves like the EDM supposedly did
I own an edm. It does happen occasionally if you are a sloppy turner, but it is honestly barely noticeable mid solve, and it’s easy to set back. It’s only an issue if you prefer the stronger magnet option.

That said, I’d still get the EDM anyway because it is basically everything that the Gan XS is but on an actually updated modern design (that isn’t just honeycombs on a base model that has been used since 2015), and only costs $25.

Haha I would probably have it on the stronger setting, and my turning is very sloppy....

Thread starter #759
Apparently it has matte plastic and a weird core
Well, for the X (numerical IPG) we have 3 level of the magnets' strength and 12 tensioning variants, for the XS - 3 level of the magnets' strength and 24 (OMG) tensioning variants. So the next step - each cuber will need to have pit stop staff for the competition to prepare the cube...
