My quest to solve the GIANT 9CM cube in under 10 seconds!

My QiMeng Plus 9CM 3x3x3 speedcube has drawn a lot of attention at speedcubing competitions so I thought it would be a fitting challenge to actually try and solve it in under 10 seconds, what happens in the end is far more shocking than I could have imagined! In the process I magnetized the cube with 96 magnets, I ultimately decided not to proceed with core-corner magnetization, although in hindsight I probably could have done and it probably would have improved it. Certain fingertricks are far more difficult on the 9CM cube due to its absurd size but the cube...

DaYan NeZha 5x5x5 unboxing | best 5x5x5 speedcube?

The DaYan NeZha is a new 5x5 speedcube from DaYan and their first ever 5x5x5 release. This version comes with medium strength magnets but a stronger magnetic version will be coming soon. The DaYan NeZha feels like other DaYan cubes and in 5x5x5 terms probably most similar to the YJ MGC but I think it is an improvement on the MGC as it retains the same speed without the added instability of the MGC, I will have to continue doing solves on it to determine whether I prefer it over the AoChuang WRM.

CH MoYu RS3M 2021 (core-corner magnetic) | still too fast?

The CH RS3M 2021 is a 3x3x3 speedcube featuring core-corner magnets, it is a mod of the original RS3M 2021 where cubers' home have inserted these magnets into the core and corners just as seen on cubes such as the Gan 11 M Pro and Gan 12, it is the first maglev cube they have released such a mod for. Personally I think it is too fast and would go with the CH RS3M 2020 instead.   Buy it here
