The Valk 3 Elite M is the long-awaited flagship from the famous Valk line by QiYi MoFangGe. Light and fast with a smooth, comfortable feel, the Valk 3 Elite M is favored by many cubers who enjoy fast turning with a uniform, consistent magnetic feel.
The Valk Elite M comes with clear nuts (standard strength) and clear magnets in the center caps (standard strength).
This cube features a brand new magnetic system with three different levels of strength. The moderate and strong versions feature a "twin-magnetic" scheme and use "center-edge" plus "corner-edge" magnetism for positioning. Additionally, QiYi introduced its own version of an elasticity adjustment system that also conveniently reduces spring noise.

Between this and the GAN 365 XS, my opinion is it just comes down to preference, slight texture difference, no real time advantage one vs. the other but I'm also just a passionate novice cuber. I did like the little case and lid it came with too. Fun little addition to the coffee table. I would recommend this to others and think it was well worth the money spent!
My one negative on this cube is the color differences are hard to see contrast in low light conditions.
This cube is absolutely satisfying to turn and fun to play with! It definitely beats my weilong wrm 2020
I really like it. Out of the box it was very oily and nasty. After restickering and setting up, it became much better. It corner twisted a lot but after tightening, it was good. It’s now my main. I feel it’s in between a valk 3 and a gan x respectively. Great cube!
My cuber loves the Valk he ordered! He is sad, however, that he was unable to get a holiday card signed by Max Parks. :'(
If your turning style is anything short of very light and perfect then this isn’t the cube for you. The most unforgiving cube I’ve ever tried. The magnetic valk 3 is a much better choice and far cheaper.
Switching from a gan cube, the magnets in the center caps take a little getting used to. Turns very smooth. Ended up sticking with the factory set up. The cube feels stable with good corner cutting. (I only turn 4 to 5 tps) Works very well for me using roux method. Easier M slices than gan. Cube doesn’t feel loose and squishy.
The cube was not what I was expecting but it is still great. I recommend it
The cube OOTB(Out of the box) is definitely average. The feeling of the cube is fantastic though, retaining some of that original Valk crunch while having a softer, smoother and quieter feel. I do not recommend this cube if you HATE setting up cubes(Like you just solve it ootb with no extra lube) because this cube won't be your main unless you take the time to make it your main(Lubing the core, the pieces, and trying different magnet settings as well as springs)
For my setup, I took apart the cube, cleaned out the subpar factory lube, and started lubing the tracks with Angstrom Gravitas. I lubed the springs with Speedcubeshop Vortex(Sorry Cubicle) and then applied Lubest XMT-10 and Angstrom Dignitas on the pieces, with some Adheron Lite/Cubicle Labs Silk to make it even smoother. For the springs and center cap magnets, I settled on clear springs and red magnets. This results in a super smooth and fast cube while having a stable, controllable feel from the Angstrom lubes. I love this cube, has become my new main already.
-Has a quiet, smooth, yet crunchy feel reminiscent of the original Valk
-Unique feel from the 96 magnets
-Very stable yet fast even out of the box
-Takes some setup out of the box
-Sometimes the corner caps pop off a little bit, but you can just reattach them(It's just a bit annoying when it happens)
I just got this cube , I didn't buy it here though but I would like to say that this cube rocks mine is on factory tensions , clear springs and magnets it feels dry ootb and I instantly lubed it and it feels amazing , it can corner twist easily but that never happens on my solves, just gotta turn more accurate . overall this cube is excellent and I highly recommend it to you who are sub 15 .
While this cube is by no means bad, I feel that it doesn't quite live up to the hype around it. While the turning is very smooth, it is very rigid and can't corner cut much past 20-30 ish degrees.
I don't want it to sound all bad, I know some people like really tight stable cubes but i just don't think it's the right cube for me. However, while i would not main this cube, I am a huge fan of the very tactile clicky feeling given by the strong magnets, making it a nice cube to just spam things on with no real purpose.
