RS3M 2020 Vs QiYi MS

This cubing comparison may be the decider for some people who cannot make up their mind on whether to purchase the QiYi MS 3x3, or the RS3M 2020. This is part one of the experiment to decide which cube can do better under different circumstances. In this case, I wanted to see which cube would do better (solve time wise), without any cube lubrication. The quick answer to this, is the RS3M 2020. Here is the long answer. When using the same scrambles for each solve, even though I used the RS3M 2020 for the first run-through, it still had...

YJ Mini cubes series

YJ have recently teased some mini cubes recently, I predict they will be released relatively soon and will be in a similar price-range to the Yu V2M line. YJ have uploaded some good solves on the ZhiLong on Instagram. I predict that these cubes will be very good, probably not for me personally but for those with smaller hands. These will be the first mass produced mini magnetic cubes, previously cubers have magnetized cubes such as the MF 50mm cubes or the mini 47.4mm Valk 3 but now we will no longer have to do that. Mini cubes are often...

YJ MGC repulsion

Yet another new offering for speedcubers? First we have size-adjustability, then core-corner magnets and now repelling magnets? For years, speedcubers have looked at the corner cutting and while cubes nowadays can normally corner cut from anywhere, this does not even let you hold the cube at 45° so whether or not it can corner cut 45° is irrelevant. It will be interesting to see whether this new feature works or whether it will just be some weird thing that no one really likes.

YuXin Little Magic 3x3x3 M review | best budget 3x3x3? | speedcubing.org

I am glad to finally get this video out, as discussed previously, the YuXin Little Magic 3x3x3 M is an excellent new budget cube from YuXin that can compete with the RS3M 2020, Meilong 3M and QiYi MS very well. I am no longer committing to a main speedcube as they all perform very well but I can see good cubers using this over much more expensive cubes, it is all down to personal preference now.

Yuxin little magic 3x3x3 M

I have been solving the yuxin little magic M for a few days now and have probably done about 500 solves on it, it is certainly not just a magnetic version of the original yuxin little magic, it has some distinct mechanism changes and pieces cannot be interchanged between the two cubes. This is somewhat humorous in that it is marketed as a magnetic version and is significantly changed whilst gan has released the same cube 5 times and a mini version and markets them all as distinct cubes. The cube itself performs very well, I have been able to...
