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.

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

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.

YJ MGC 7x7x7 review

We are pleased to finally have this review released on our YouTube channel. The YJ MGC 7x7x7 is an excellent new 7x7x7 in the mid-price range, it is fast and reasonably smooth, retaining the standard MGC feel replicated in the YJ MGC 6x6x6, it is essentially what the AoFu GTSM should have been.
