MSCube MS3V1 review | new brand, can it be good? | speedcubing.org

The MS3V1 is a new cube by a new brand: MSCube, designed by a designer who used to work for Gancube but left to create his own brand. it is nice and smooth and does not feel too Gan-like, feeling similar to cubes such as the MGC elite and the Valk elite. It comes with the standard elasticity adjustment features so you can adjust it to suit your preferences. The Enhanced version also comes with centre-edge magnets along with the standard corner-edge magnets, this makes the magnets feel stronger and more even but is not actually too noticeable as the...

DaYan GuHong V4M

This was rather suddenly released without any of the constant teasing we get from other cube brands so we knew very little about how good we could expect it to be. It represents a return to full size speedcubes (56mm), the GuHong V3M was 54mm and was not very good in my opinion. It is very light at just 65.5g and the magnets are a bit weak making it slightly too fast for some. In some ways it feels like a faster version of the TengYun V2M without all the customisation options though. It is a nice option for people...

YJ ZhiLong Mini 3x3x3

The YJ ZhiLong is the first mass produced magnetic 50mm 3x3x3 speedcube, it does have all the features of top-range big cubes such as the full range of corner cutting and a smooth, stable performance. The other popular 50mm cube, the MoFang JiaoShi mini 3x3x3 was popular amongst some in the One-Handed Solving event and we expect this to be the same, it certainly will not suit everyone but if you like small cubes then this is definitely the cube for you! Size: 50mm weight: 57.5g

YJ ZhiLong Mini 3x3x3 now up for pre-order

We are very excited to get this cube up for pre-order and hope it will arrive soon, it is a 50mm magnetic 3x3x3 speedcube which will probably feel similar to cubes such as the YuLong V2M. Pre-release reviews suggest that its performance is similar to top-range 56mm speedcubes, the main problem being the size, for people who like smaller cubes though, this will not be a problem so this cube may be perfect for you.

DaYan GuHong V4M now up for pre-order

We are very excited to get this cube up for pre-order, very little is known about the performance of this cube, as far as I am aware, it has not been sent out to many testers so it is very difficult to know how well it will perform, it is rumoured to have medium strength magnets and a core like the TengYun v1 and be quite quiet but not as quiet as the TengYun v1. We will have to wait and see...
