What exactly did I buy? Also, first post!

Hi guys! New user, UPSB cuber here. I've known about the forums for a while and speedcubing in general and just recently decided to take a gander at it after a friend recently awakened my love for cubing (I started solving four years ago just for fun, didn't go past beginner method.) So far, I'm working on f2l and one look PLL and two look OLL. That's as much as and introduction you'll get from me for now though.

Now to the problem.

A few days ago, in the spirit of noobness I ordered some speedcubes to get me started on my journey. After watching reviews from Jrcuber and others, I decided upon purchasing the YJ yulong as my main and a shengshou 4x4 on the side. When I received my package a few hours ago, my yj yulong appeared to have morphed into something entirely else!

seems a bit chilly, maybe the cubies shrunk? :p

proof of purchase

yulong for reference: http://thecubicle.us/yulong-p-1921.html

I'm starting to think its a mini aolong since its a 55 mm x 55 mm

Can someone help me out here? If it is an aolong, should i just keep it, or should I try to swap it out for a yulong (idk if you can even do that.)


Hope this doesn't die. :(

First of all what did the box say on it and secondly a pic of the parts can also help ID the cube.

Could someone identify which batch of the Aolong V2 this is from? It came from the box with the window and flap on top but its kinda sluggish and slow.
