A bit stiff out of the box, and it did improve with a bit of breakin and lubrication. The tensioning system is pretty good, and the two settings on the magnets are good to have, but I don't see this as being my 'Main' cube. I primarily got this one because of the good reviews, and because I wanted an affordable stickered cube for my collection, but I think it is just okay. Maybe I have it set up wrong, but my very well broken in super budget cubes feel just as good as this.
Great price, and performs at it price level, but a bit overhyped for what you actually get.
