I got this so that I may learn to solve pyraminx, and I believe it is a great beginner puzzle. A little bit loud though, hence four stars.

Okay, but only after modding
This is okay, but not nearly as good as higher end puzzles. Out of the box, the body was quite nice. It had a quick, smooth feel with a light click after each turn from the ball bearings, which are interestingly in the edges rather than the centers. However, the tips were so clicky that they were essentially unusable. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, as the springs for the ball bearings could be switched for softer ones. However, in order to reduce production costs, YuXin used a different design that makes this impossible. Rather than the traditional ball bearing and spring design, this puzzle has protrusions on the tips that fit into grooves on the centers, making them nonadjustable without modding, which is what I ended up doing. I sanded down the protrusions, which helped drastically. After the modification and setup, this puzzle is average. It maintains the original feel, which is a positive for me, but the relatively poor cornercutting causes some minor lockups and catches, making solves less fluid. Additionally, the stickers are fairly poor quality. I put a significant gouge in one of the yellow stickers just from removing the logo. My times on this puzzle are about half a second slower on this puzzle compared to my main X-Man Bell, which is significant as a sub-4.5 second solver. Overall, I would really only recommend this puzzle to people who are on a budget and are willing to do the mod, but I think most people should pass on this one.
