I really love the black and red, two favorite colors in one cube internal? ~~Love!~~
Nice color separation
Tiny bit smaller than the Gan 356
Just came in. The packaging was nice, pretty typical of flagship cubes these days. A nice pull-apart box with the cube in a plastic case and a small box of accessories next to it.
The cube was not all greasy which is nice, so many of them are, (my JPerm cube is still leaking grease and I got it weeks ago).
First impressions are that the Tornado V2 feels almost exactly like my Gan 356, which is awesome because I love that cube. It's not loose, it's not too stiff at all, it has that super smooth quiet feeling like a Gan cube. Before today I would've said, "Nothing feels like a Gan cube except a Gan cube"... but this cube to me feels like a Gan cube. If you put it in my hands and I was blindfolded the super smooth turning, the quietness of the cube, the almost 'zero friction' feeling when you're making turns, all would have me thinking I was holding a Gan cube. The Gan cube is just a bit more loose/deformable, the Tornado is tighter but not too tight at all. (not like a Valk, for example)
Pretty amazing so far, I like it a lot.
For the price getting something that looks fantastic and feels like a Gan is pretty amazing. I think this cube may be a really hot seller, the price point is great and the quality and feeling of it is great.
...also I really, really, really love the black and red internals. That just looks beautiful.
I have X-man cubes and Pyraminx's and honestly I haven't liked any of them so I wasn't sure what to expect with this, I really only bought it because I like the red and black (and I'm just a sucker for new cubes I guess), but I'm really glad I got it now and think it's not going to be leaving my desk. It'll be right next to my MGC Elite and Gan 356.
Good cube. Would recommend.
