This cube has a very similar feel to a GAN cube. It is super soft and satisfying to turn. This cube is my current main over my valk 2, and is also at a very reasonable price in my opinion. I believe that this cube is worth the price. The cube does not feel like an old plastic or even a new plastic dayan; they're nowhere near alike and this cube has more of a soft, papery feel, similar to the 249.
