So it turns out that there are definitly no magnets in this pyraminx, it features a ball-point positioning system which it turns out is similar to what is used on the meilong pyraminx. I am probably slightly embarassing myself by forgetting about that since I have obviously had to play around with the meilong pyraminx a lot at market stalls. I think that on the QiMing S2 it is more obvious and overall the performance is definitely better, it is essentially a cheaper version of the X-Man Bell V1, I am not sure why they chose to use that as a base model instead of the new X-Man Bell V2 but they did, if you want a £5 pyraminx then this is my recommendation but if you can afford to spend a bit more then consider the QiYi MS or better still, the Gan Pyraminx.
I got in touch with Daniel about a spare part. He very quickly responded that the part was available and I was able to order it on the very clean and efficient website. I was delighted by how quickly the part arrived and I would highly recommend speedcubing.org to anybody.
The Mo Yu Meilong is, on the whole, an excellent cube. The only issue I had was with a bit of “sag” and misalignment when performing multiple moves. This may be true of all larger cubes, but this is my first large cube. The service from Speedcubing.org was spot on, and I’ll definitely visit them again.
My son is really loving this and it has great corner-cutting,
I love this cube. The corner cutting is really good, as for most GAN cubes. I like how easy it is turn and the customisation for me is really good as is the corner cutting.
All the different centre settings are good, but I found the blue (1.7N) tension nuts work best for me. The magnet adjustment system is easy to use and I think corner-to-core magnets is a great idea.
Looking forward to using this in my first competition!
