This cube is quite fast and the magnets are medium strength. When I got this cube my solves became became faster by 2 seconds and I used it to get my PB of 1.38 seconds (at home). Overall this is my favorite 2x2 that I have.
Out of the box it was very slippery so once the cap came off and a unglued magnet came out, but the slipperiness will disappear after 50 solves.
Also I have small hands so this cube was a very good puzzle for me.
I'm a relative newbie at cubing, and my first 2x2 was the QiYi Valk, which is 51mm and felt a little big to me. I bought the GAN 249 as 49mm sounded like it might be more comfortable. While I like it a lot, I've since found that properly lubing and setting up my Valk has made it more comfortable and useable, and if anything the GAN is perhaps a little small for my hands! It's a lot lighter than the Valk, which may appeal to some, and has a "scratchy" sound and feel compared to the "buttery" Valk. Anyway - it's a great cube – I just think the Valk is better! Also, the matte feel of the fades may not be for everyone. I personally prefer the glossy feel of the Valk and my MoYu cubes.
Amazing as usual
This is a very controllable puzzle. It has a medium to strong magnetic click. It is certainly much better than the v1 and I can see much pro's using it!
This cube comes perfect out of the box. The turning is slightly bumpy but unlike most cubes this simply adds character to each turn. Although it is a bit small for my liking, its the most fun 2x2 i have ever turned, whitch is why its my main.
