This is my first Megaminx, but definitely not my first twisty puzzle. I'm not the fastest solver with a 3x3x3 PR of 72 seconds (Roux), but I know what a good puzzle feels like and I am definitely happy with the way the X-Man Galaxy Megaminx V2 M feels. I have yet to lube my twisty puzzles, so I can't say whether this one needs any lube, but it turns fine for my tastes. And the magnets are just the right strength, e.g. I don't feel like a turn is going to take a face past the point of alignment.
