MGC Square-1

It is a great cube. It has good corner cutting, it has a great slice movement. It is good to solve with, but it catches one the slice if they are not properly aligned.

Good cube

Now that this is my first Square-1 and I can't (yet) solve it, I'm probably not competent enough for a review. But I did notice a few things. First: the screwdriver is useless because it cannot be used well. Take the multitool from the Tornado V2 :-)

Second: be very careful when removing the yellow caps, as a nipple tends to break off here. The problem: the rest of the nipple is in the hole, so the black cap doesn't fit. I carefully drilled new holes, first with a 1 mm drill, then 1.5 mm, then 2 mm. That was a little awkward. Probably I could have removed the corresponding nipple on the black caps and the cap would have held tight, but well ...

For the setup, I recommend the video from Cube Master:

Definetly best square 1 on the market

Ootb it wasn't great a little too slow and very tight compared to my ylm. But after setup is amazing, like it so hard to go back to my ylm compared to the corner cutting of this puzzel. I also got a sub 15 ao5 pb!!
