Great cube, especially for fans of faster puzzles. Maybe my new main.

I bought the puzzle at thecubicle.us
I purchased the puzzle a week ago and broke it in with a avg of 100 and then lubed
I think it is an okay puzzle but it flexes a lot it pops every 20 solves and it locks up a lot with my turning style I recommend using heavy weight lube for it to make it more controllable.

I may be a little biased, but this was my main since February when I first got it.

I love the flexing on this puzzle, and it does help with my turning style. It takes a while to set this cube up, but it never disappointed me. I always liked cubes that were slightly abnormal in how fast they are, so getting this cube was a pleasant surprise. it rarely locks up on me, which is always a good sign. despite no squared off corners, this cube never really corner twists on its own.

Comparing this cube to what i heard about the yuexiao is sort of like comparing a hualong and an aolong v2.

I bought this puzzle from speedcube.com.au a while back.

I really like this puzzle and it is my main. The feeling IMO is in the middle of all categories. Sort of buttery, crispy, smooth and sandy. I don't really find this puzzle to flex that much, the way I have it setup makes it quite stable. I don't find mine super fast either, it's slower than my Thunderclap which I can't really control. This is a perfect speed for me. I don't have too much catching issues with it, and it's quite fluid on me.
