I would say, this is a very good cube. MoYu has some competition now.

My aosu has no stability problems in the centers or the edges, also the edges are rounded, so I'm wondering if your aosu is really an aosu. Mine is stickerless, which might make a difference in the speed but not the shape and stability. I've seen CCS's video on this puzzle as well and it looks very fast indeed.

Edit: I looked at your video and again and I think I see what you mean with rounded: on the yuxin, the entire edge is rounded, whereas the moyu only has the edges of the edges rounded.

I have a white AoSu that is more stable. But both are less stable on outer layer than the YuXin. I hope to see some more reviews soon of real fast people. I think this cube will be great for high TPS people..

If this cube was only released recently, why are there videos of a Yuxin 4x4 on youtube from 2-5 years ago in which the cube doesn't look so nice? I want to know this because I was thinking of asking a friend to get it for me but I don't want the stiff one.

They probably made a 4x4 many years ago. Yuxin is just the brand name, apparently they didn't give the cube a name.

Small update. after using it a for a few days.. going back to an AoSu feel weird. AoSu is so slow. I think the Yuxin is the new best 4X4. I hope to see some reviews of fast people soon.
I ordered mine from Lightalke. 1 month to wait now. Excited hearing the positive reviews from you :)

Just got it:
First impressions. more stable SS that doesn't catch. 3x3 stage is amazing on it since the outer layers are much smoother than AoSu. Inner Layers are definitely more solid in feel making parity easy to do without much lock ups. Actually out of box, I haven't been able to make it lock up on a regular solve.

Video soon.

I've heard that it's a bit heavier than the Aosu, but still comfortable. Is this true?

Can't really tell. It's not like you're going to get tired holding it midsolve. it certainly feels lighter in terms of turning. but for actual weight, it's not noticeable in comparison.

EDIT - this is probably going to be my main from now on. mainly because I have a popped Aosu and I don't want to put it back together.
