Valk2 M is the first 2x2 produced in the iconic Valk line. Coming in at a slightly larger than the normal 51mm, this puzzle is solidly built with a stable and more substantial feel.
The magnet positions on this 2x2 are unlike any seen on the market. Rather than the typical corner-only magnet layout, the Valk2 M uses a corner/edge magnet layout resembling that of a 3x3. This gives the puzzle a smaller magnetic radius making the feel more consistent throughout the turn.

though I didn't buy it here, the Valk 2 m is an amazing cube. Its a bit bad our of the box, but with some setup and breaking-in, I think its the best performing 2x2. My setup on it is Lubicle black on the core(bought it somewhere else) and weight 3 lube on the tracks of 2 corners and 1 edge.
OOTB it was a little slow but after doing a couple solves and lubing it with silk, it was great but when I was practicing some j perms on it the center as in the nail in the center moved to like a corner piece so I couldn't turn the sides. I didn't see anyone else's cube do this so I could of been just mine. it doesn't happen often tho probably just when u lock up. it has great corner cutting, pretty strong magnets but is still fast. The magnets add great stability.
Hi. So this is my second Valk 2 M. My 1st one was the Angstrom version of it. This will be my real Review on it. Ootb, the plastic of the cubes is actually really disgusting. It is apparent that the right plastic wrap around the cube has also left some dry, sticky residue. There is no substance, or solids on the plastic, it's just the feel. But it goes away after 30 solves. The cube itself, (this review is about the normal not set-up version) felt very weird compared to my Angstrom valk. Felt sticky, plasticy, just like the outside of the cube. However, after like 20 solves, it does get better. But I HIGHLY recommend that you set this up with some real lube. Dnm-37 is a great lube, but mainly affects speed, and not the actual feel. I really wanted the same feel as the Angstrom valk, so I used my gravitas and dignitas to lube it. Now it feels just like my 1st valk. Only complaint. Is that there was a annoying spring noise on one side, but went away after 4 days of casual solve. Has really good corner cutting. And after about 2-3 weeks of solving, will start feeling even faster, something the valk 2 m is notorious for not being.
Tl;dr. Good cube. Weird feeling on both outside of cube and in turning (feel) and might have spring noise. Recommend Angstrom setup either from the cubicle or do it yourself. Once the cube becomes Angstrom, you will appreciate the feel and the cube will never go back to being boring
It’s is good but kinda slow
So i got this and ootb i instantly noticed an issue, the plastic, its not normal plastic and makes it hard to grip and turn, the shape of the cube also irritates your fingers more than usual, it is also VERY slow, there are so many better options, just dont get this cube
OOTB it was blocky and dry, so I lubed it and it was ok. Something annoying that totally destroys me revie of it was that I had an internal pop, very bad mechanics.
I got this during December, and it was ok at the time, but I couldn't turn very fast. I don't have lube and couldn't speed it up, I had been using the mgc for a long time and tried to spring swap it with those, but it didn't do anything. Then I tried to spring swap it with the 3x3 mgc. It worked because the mgc springs were very short . it made the cube quite fast
I have had this cube for a little over a year now and it is great. However recently I traded the stock springs for the mgc springs. This not only lets this cube corner cut more easily but also lets it maintain stability, If you have both of these cubes, definitely recommend this mod.
so in case you don't know, it has the mech of a 3x3, but the edges dont protrude all the way to the surface. Now, three of these edges, all adjacent to one another forming a triangle, are connected to three adjacent centers via ridges that extend from the edge into a slot on the center. this is to prevent the inner edges from not turning all the way and completely locking the cube. but if you do an alg to fast or try to corner cut too deep, the ridges will slip out of their slots and not go back in and you will have to tear the cube apart and rebuild it. This is incredibly frustrating and if you are a fast turning this may happen often.
This cube is AMAZING out of the box, very good strong magnets, very good compression system and strength. Although, it's corners twist easily from time to time. But overall this is a great cube from QiYi!
