The Mini Alpha is a great cube to have for a variety of people. If you are a speedcuber and want to practice a little more, this cube's portability will definitely do you good. If you have small hands or want to practice one-handed, this cube is great for your situation. If you want to hand someone an excellent performing speedcube as a gift, this is also your ideal choice. It has the fast, light, and crispy feeling that Alpha is famous for coupled with rich, high quality stickers. Fun fact: this is the first puzzle iCubeMart ever stocked all the way back in October 2010.
