I still can't give over how good this cube is. I ordered a whole batch for a kids cubing club I'm teaching.
It blows my mind how nice the out of the box experience is on this cube. I'm definitely not expert level but I've been gathering a really big collection and there's absolutely no cube near this price that's this nice. My times are just as good on the Gu Hong V3 as on any of my top-tier cubes. Just make sure to have something to wipe it off when you open it up as they definitely like to arrive pre-lubed!
At this price, it's worth grabbing one just as a backup or for BLD, but you might find yourself using it more than you expect!
