Very good cube (comparison with Valk 3)
Posted by Fabian Cabrera on 19th May 2017
I bought a black Valk 3 as I wanted to have an excellent cube to finally improve my times. I also bought the Qiyi Thunderclap stickerless as I wanted to have an extra 3x3 wihtout stickers. I was surprised with this cube, I was not expecting much because of the price but I saw some reviews on Youtube so I gave it a try. I am literally having the same times with this cube compared to the Valk 3. The Valk 3 is less noisy and moves faster whereas the Thunderclap makes some more noise (I love the noise it does) and it feels slower. It has incredible corner cutting and the bright colors of the thunderclap make it easy to recognize all the pieces especially when doing F2L. As I said, I literrally have the same times in both cubes, having times from 15-18 seconds. I saw there is a second version of the Thunderclap. If you don't want to spend too much money on a cube then go for this one or the Thunderclap V2 which I guess is an improved version. If you have the money then go for the Valk 3 but honestly the Thunderclap performs as good as the Valk 3, the biggest difference is how it feels in your hands and the Valk 3 has a really nice packaging.
Awesome Cube and Customer Service

I am new to cubing and decided on the Thunderclap (Version 1). Unfortunately, I twisted one of my corner pieces, and instead of just trying each corner in turn I decided to take the cube apart. However, with scant experience, I broke two of the pieces. I spoke to M from ThePuzzleStore who offered me not only spare pieces to get my cube up and running again but also at no cost to me, not even postage. This store is the best out there and can't recommend it enough. And the cube works just right, straight out of the box. It's perfect for someone of my level (just tackling F2L) and above, who wants a great cube from real cubing enthusiasts.
Fast, floaty cube

This cube is very fast, noisy turning, but feels so effortless to turn :) the stickers are pretty average, but after using the Valk 3, these stickers seem pale and small. It's very loose out the box and feels great to turn. My speeds are no slower on this than the Valk. It comes with a cube bag which is a nice addition with such a budget cube! Overall, it is hard to control for slower cubers, so I would recommend it to people who are quite fast, but is good to anyone! :)
Very fast cube

This puzzle is really fast. A little bit unstable and this 3x3 has some lock-ups. However, i recommand this cube to any cuber.
P.S: The color scheme is nice for the stickerless one and the bag is a good plus.

I needed to order a new cube to motivate me to finish off learning the rest if the OLL and PLL algorithms. When ever I get some spare time I've got this cube in my hand, very nice cube great customer service also. I've already order a further 2 cubes off of the customer service alone.
Great first cube!

My first speed cube and I couldn't be happier! Decreased my time by 20s within the first day of using it (from 1:30 to 1:10)
Best 3x3 out of the box
Posted by Trev on 5th Jan 2017
Had better turning than aolong v2 and even the Valk3 out of the box. Amazing cube - and that is not even considering the low price and included cube bag.

I wanted this initially just to try out as have seen lots of good reviews but mainly to pinch the springs after hearing that the Yuxin blue 4x4 improves a lot with them in. This cube is very light and fast with super smooth turning. I wasn't really that impressed with the pale shades (stickerless version) and was a little too loose and fast for my liking and there was lots of spring noise, but nothing a bit of tensioning and lube didn't fix. Although the corners are rounded off as they all used to be rather than squared off as they all are now and can be easily turned on purpose I never had a single corner twist during a solve. It's a really great bargain and even comes with a little bag!
(I actually prefer this cube now with Yuxin springs in it after the spring swap. It wasn't great at first but after a play with the tensions and a drop of lube here and there you get a tighter, snappier, more controllable cube that holds its shape better while solving. A recommended project)
Good quality cube
