MoYu noted on its initial Facebook past about the cube that :
1.HuaLong adopts curve surface into its inner structure, which makes it feel better than WeiLong, when you solve fast.
I have the HuaLong on the bottom with the Weilong on the top left which MoYu claims the cube was modeled after, the AoLong in the middle, and the GuanLong on the top right. I have included the AoLong since it is arguably the most popular MoYu cube a the moment, and I will explain why I have included the GuanLong in a bit.
You can see by the edge pieces that the HuaLong does resemble a WeiLong most. The wings actually seem a bit less curved and is missing the tracks that you find in the WeiLong.
On the Corner pieces the stock resembles the WeiLong almost exactly but has a more cut out structure with holes at the ends of the corners.
As far as the speed of the cube, this cube is fast. Without a doubt faster than the WeiLong, and might be the fastest cube MoYu has ever made. It is on par with the Gans 357 and Fangshi cubes. So if you are looking for a fast cube this could be for you, but for me it is a bit uncontrollable, especially on M slices.
Corner cutting is good, but not anything to brag about. It can do a bit over 45° on my medium tensions. I would still say that My AoLong can cut a bit more.
This cube seems to fix some of the internal locking problems that the WeiLong had, but seems to add some locking issues on the outside. The cube tends to flex a lot and although has the ability to corner cut well it does still catch.
Corner twisting is not a problem, and it is next to impossible to pop this cube. I had to loosen the tensions quite a lot to take an edge piece out.
This is a very fast cube, but it feels nothing like a WeiLong to me. It is very light and airy feeling and does not hold a cubic structure well. Honestly, it feels like GuanLong with better corner cutting and with the ability to flex like an AoLong V1. Just like practically every cube coming out these days it is a great cube and could easily be someone’s main. I find myself going to the AoLong, WeiLong, and GuanLong more than this one. My times are within a second of each other on all four cubes. I personally like heavier and more stable feeling cubes. and the HuaLong does not fit my style If you are newer into cubing I would not recommend this cube, but if you are solving sub-10 seconds and like super fast and light cubes this might work for you.

Thank you for putting this high quality review on display.

Thank you! I still go back and forth. I still prefer using the WeiLong, but I know my times are just a tad faster with the HuaLong.

I love this cube, it's my main right now, but it pops A LOT. What do you think is wrong?
5/12/2016 05:58:05 pm
My only thoughts are that the tension are way too loose since Mine has never popped on me at all. I literally cannot pry an edge piece out on purpose.

Thanks! I was wondering if you could do a review on the Weilong gts, the Weilong was pretty good, but the Weilong gts seems really good. The you tuber Cubey Time says it's probably the best Moyu cube produced ever. I am either going to get the Yuexiao, or the Weilong gts, so I wanted to hear what you thought about the Weilong gts. Please review the cube and thank you!

Epic review! Is this cube better than Cong's design Meiying?
5/25/2016 08:56:15 am
They are slightly different feeling cubes. The MeiYing feels much lighter and flatter sides. I personally like the MeiYing more but get equal times on both. The HuaLong is a bitter bubbly and a little less stable (More easily flexible).
