The Meilong 8×8 is a great alternative for those who want to try solving a 8×8 or just want an 8×8 in their collection for fun. However if you want an 8×8 with great performance then we recommend the Yuxin Huanglong 8×8 which is more suited and built for speedcubing.
The MoFang JiaoShi Meilong 8×8 is a small and compact 8×8. Compared to the Yuxin Huanglong 8×8 which is very fast, the Meilong 8×8 is a bit slower.
