the last time i bought a rubiks cube was a dayan 5 and that was top of the top. im totally overwhelmed. I dont think i have a chance to get to clasify the gan 3x3 cubes, can anyone help me out?
I want to buy a gan brand 3x3 stickerless cube, what are my options? if the best option comes only in magnetic version i'll go for it but I rather do the magnetizing myself.
In the gans site it doesnt seem to be any stickerless 3x3 at all.
Oh never mind if i navigate trough the cubes menu i can't find any, but if i go right to the shop i can find that one you just linked me.
is that the only one? is it any good compared to the best gan air that might not come in stickerless version?

For 3x3, I think the 354 M in stickerless is your only option for gan puzzles. Thecubicle.us has it.

If you have small hands, then it’s great. But really, if you’re using a dayan zhanchi, any modern speedcube is amazing so go for anything (i.e Huanglong, GTS2M, MF3RS2M, Valk, GAN SM, etc)

ill stick to the valk 3 and either the weilong gts v2 or the weilong gts v3 if i hear good reviews, i'll get into the gans brand if things get a bit more clear, does that sound like a good plan?
Yes. The Valk should be a good choice, magnetic or not. But you have to get it in stickerless.

I'm going to magnetize a gans air S. Should I get the cubicle light or standard magnet kits?

Does your GAN S have slots for magnets?
If it does, then the ones that fit are 3x2 mm. Since cubicle magnets are 4×1,, they won't fit.
If your cube doesnt have slots, then go for the lite version. The SM has similar magnets to the strong kit, and it's a bit too strong.

Hi everyone. I took a little hiatus from cubing and coming back it looks like a lot of interesting new puzzles have come out. Particularly interested in the new 4x4s. I'm a huge fan of the Gan Air SM but I still regard the original Wuque as the best 4x4 of all time. So the question becomes - which new 4x4 to pick up, the Wuque Mini M or the Gan 460? Is one clearly better than the other? Does either one top the original Wuque?

Why?:
My review of thecubicle.us after many purchases, conversations, and website views.

Price:

They have prices that are very good. Comparable to SCS and similar US cube stores.

Shipping:

My current (3x3) main is a (stickerless) GTS2m and I absolutely love the feel, the strength (or rather, lack of strength of...) the magnets and everything about it... EXCEPT... it's so noisy that I get comments when cubing in the office. Is there anything on the market that is similar but much less noisy?

I have the Gan Air SM and the magnets are too strong and it feels slow / gummy compared to the GTS2m even when broken in and using the purple GES nuts. I also have MF3RS, MF3RS2 (both self-magnetized and non-magnetized) and there's something I can't put my finger on about those I don't like either. I have a Gan 356 Air (the original one) and that's nice - just wish it was stickerless!

I'm really interested in the Gan 354m - is that a similar feel to the GTS2m or is it like the Air SM? I have heard that it's pretty quiet...
To answer my own message, my 354M arrived this morning and wow - I love it. The colours are nice and bold, the magnets are nowhere near as strong as the 356SM (my main beef with that cube) and it is quiet, certainly compared to my GTS2M. The only issue I have with it is the colour scheme. I use white opposite blue (ie. Japanese) and I can't see a way to get the edge pieces apart to swap the tiles over. The corners come apart easily

So... I'm attempting to use the "western" colour scheme and it's not going well so far but I might persevere with it for a while...

Actually, I decided to do some surgery on the cube and cut the single yellow and blue tiles off with a scalpel. Sounds drastic but the plastic is very soft and with a sharp blade you can make a very clean cut. I then simply glued those two tiles in the correct place and I now have a 354M with the "right" colour scheme - very happy with it now!

As an aside, with those tiles removed I can see that putting together the edges is a one time deal - the magnets hold the coloured faces in place and there is no way to remove them to release the faces. That's an odd design decision by GAN but as I say, nothing a bit of minor surgery can't fix

I’d like to see a picture of your colour transplanted cube. Sounds cool.

Looks cool, and nice job with the retiling (?)
