Very smooth aside from magnets which adds a noice clicky feel to the cube - 5 STARS!!!
MUCH CHEAPER HERE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE!
Simply the best Gans cube there is. At a Price!

The Gans Air 356 UM is simply put THE BEST GANS cube there is.
I have owned the air 356 but this is a totally different beast, taking the best from the air and giving it the positive action of magnets.
Compared to the previous models it’s just as smooth and light but the magnets give a positive click and feel allowing you to speed through a solve without anywhere as many cuts.
On unboxing it comes with the lightest springs installed the purple ones (I normally use the green ones in my standard Air) and I thought they were going to be too light, but they were fine until I had done about 300 solves. At this point the cube got a bit sloppy so I applied 8 drops of Maru lube and all was good with the world again. I don’t have to lube this cube anywhere near as much with maru as I did the standard Air 356 which I was doing every couple of dozen solves or so. The Air 356 UM only needs Maru once every couple of days (Aprox 50 - 100 solves)
Now the bad it is expensive I bought one directly from GANS and a second from here (It was not available when I bought my first one) but it does work out cheaper if you buy it from the Puzzle Store UK. It comes with the full set of GES Springs, Spanner and bag as well as additional stickers, so you do get a lot for your money.
I do love this cube I much prefer it to my Valk 3 and my original Air it really is an excellent cube, but remember it’s a personal choice what’s right for me may not be for you.
HAVING SAID THAT I REALLY, REALLY, love it. So I would definitely give it a go.
