Very Impressed!
By Trent C on 20 May 2018
Product: YJ MGC
My MGC is set up with lubicle black in the core and a mix of QiYi M-Lube and Silk on the pieces.

Unlike what the review mentions, this cube is actually around 56mm, about the size of the YueXiao pro.

The puzzle is indeed very fast and magnets are somewhat noticeable. The plastic does seem to be very soft and plush, and the cube has a very quiet and muted sound. The cube has no resemblance to most moyu cubes in terms of plastic feel.

Turning this cube is an absolute joy. Even without lube, this cube manages to retain very smooth and tactile turning, even with the presence of magnets, which serve to further control this cube. It's like a more compact and blocky Valk power, and kinda like a softer version of the TangLong. However, the MGC has a more tactile and crunchy (still soft) feeling, which for me is a good thing. Not to mention, the feeling of the cube doesn't severely change once lube wears out, which is a big plus.

I have yet to experience any lockups, twists, or pops on this cube. However, overshooting can happen when you first pick it up. You get used to it after 20 or so solves. However, if you aren't into very fast cubes, I would give this cube a pass and look at its more controllable cousin the YueXiao Pro.

As for my own experience with this cube, I'm very happy with my MGC, and bumped my YueXiao Pro down to backup main status. I love the tactile nature of this puzzle, and the primary internals just look amazing. I'm pretty sure this cube isn't leaving my main list anytime soon.

Out of the box it was super smooth. Really nice packing, nice box for 3x3 budget cube. corner cutting is really good a bit more than 45 degrees.

This cube is awesome! I lubed it with lost of weight 2 on the pieces and silk on the core. The lube somehow made the magnets feel stronger, which I believe is necessary on the cube. Very smooth and fast! Nothing more from me. JUST GET IT!!!

Good, but not my type of turning style.
By CubingAsItIs on 18 June 2018

Okay, this cube is very good. The magnets feel great and the internals are very soft. But this cube doesn’t satisfy my turning style. It’s about moderate speed and doesn’t need much to any lube at all. I would recommend this to anyone who likes cubes that turn moderately fast.

Smooth but a bit slow.

Very nice cube. Put Martian lube in and its a teeny bit slow. Amazing for a YJ cube and can compare to Valk 3, Weilong GTS2 and GAN Air SM.
Have not tried dnm 37 or lubicle silk but i will in the future.

Out of the box, even without any lube, this cube is wonderfully smooth and quiet. In fact, I did not even find it necessary to lube at all. After about 50 solves it remains just as smooth.

This was my first magnetic cube, and although the magnets are not as strong as I imagined, they are still strong enough to make me feel as if they are making a difference.

Incredible cube in general, and its low price makes this a must-buy.

Great niche 3x3
By Johnny Horstman on 09 June 2018
Product: YJ MGC
Although I don't think everyone will like this cube, I think it fills a niche in the market very well regardless of the price. This is a very stable and controllable cube, and I am giving this 5 stars because I feel that it's the best option within the "stable and controllable" category of 3x3s. This cube is very fluid for controlled and accurate turners, the magnets work but aren't overpowering, and the feel of the cube (at least with my setup) is crispy but still pretty soft and smooth. Although this cube doesn't have any performance attributes that really stand out, overall I think the MGC is a really solid cube and it has become my main.
