Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

I'd been using the MF3RS for around 2 years of on and off cubing. It was locky and I felt like I should upgrade. After thorough thinking, I purchased the Valk 3 for its supposed stability, excellent corner cutting, crunchy feel, and size (my hands are relatively small.)
The unboxing experience was very pleasant. The black box looks like what my phone came in, and the cube is in plastic wrap to protect from dust. When I opened the wrapping, the cube had a lot of lubricant on the outside, so have a towel with you to clean that up. The factory lubricant makes the puzzle very quick, almost uncontrollable for some. I found the speed out of the box to be quite nice for my gentle turning style.
Corner cutting is great, as expected of any flagship cube. Well over 45 degrees normal without much force, and reverse cuts are around a piece. Even without magnets, this cube is incredibly stable, at least compared to my MF3RS. I experienced minor lockups but that could be due to the fact that my cube is incredibly fast. Wiping down the pieces and lubricating to your liking may fix this. It's only been a couple of days, and the factory lubricant is still in the puzzle, but once it wears out I'll clean the pieces and use speedy.
In conclusion, the Valk 3 provides a stable, fast, and crunchy feeling. The packaging is great and the 55.5 mm size is just right for me. I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a good cube.
ootb it was too fast but after tightening it and putting a little bit of dnm 37...it has been amazing. (Note this is my first speedcube from using a rubiks brand for 5 months)
(After putting in dnm 37 and tightening it)
-controllable for beginners
P.S it is a bit lubey on the outside so wipe it off good with a towel (Note wiping it off with a towel wont make the cube slow but I still recommend buying this cube with dnm 37!!!
I bought this cube maybe 2 years ago and is still turning amazing and the Lubicle Black is still there after such a long time! Amazing cube cuts corners nicely and is SUUUPER soft.
A little unstable but very fast and unbreakable
Personally I love this cube it is my main over the GAN 356 Air sm LOL
Wooooooooooo! It's soft, but just a teeny bit catchy
This is literally THE BEST. I've had it for a day and already improved my average by 20 seconds. So honestly, BUY IT NOW!
This became my new main. Ootb it was very smooth but had a crunchy feel. It was very tight and i had to tension it again. Added silicone oil and magnetized it with lite magnets. It is awesome and i highly recommend it for everyone
This is the best mid-range cube on the market, NO DOUBT! After a couple solves out of the box it feels extremely buttery smooth, and with lube a d tensions, it's a dream. I used dnm-37 and weight 5 for my cube. Legitimately the ONLY single thing that I would like to be better on this cube is the stability, granted, I have ginormous hands. If you are looking for a good cube BUY THIS. Forget what I said at the beginning, this is one of the best cubes PERIOD
