OOTB this cube was too stable but decent. But the problem I have with it is that during parity, it will lock up so badly (as pictured) and it is impossible to fix. Also like I said I don’t like that the cube is too stable. I wish this cube had more speed than it does. The worst thing is this 5x5 is $50! While the $22 mgc 5x5 is way better and faster and doesn’t lock up. If you want a good premium 5x5, just good for the mgc not this.
I purchased the valk 5 since it everyone keeps saying it’s the best 5x5 on the market by far. I was really excited when I received it. While it may feel stiff and rough at first, this cube can take a while to break in until it feels really good and smooth, and if not just add some lube. The only reason I’m giving it four stars is because one of the yellow center caps came with a defect it’s slightly darker yet noticeable then the rest of the center caps, and I’m not sure if it’s competition legal besides that it’s perfect.
The title says it all.
I was just turning the cube, and on the 3x3 stage... this happened. 0 out of 10, I do not recommend this cube to anyone who wishes to buy it.
I had doubts about it when I first opened it, but after I switched the lube out for Weight 5 on the pieces, it surpassed my expectations. 10/10, would buy again.
Really a very good 5x5. Right out of the box it was a little tight but with a little loosening it was perfect. The magnets are pretty strong which makes for a very stable cube. Highly recommend.
Let me get this straight, this cube is great for a lot of people. I want to like this cube but I cant get it to really shine for me. no matter what i do to this cube i cant make it great like everyone else says it is. This review probably wont matter to many of you, as there are like 20 other 5 star reviews praising this cube, but maybe it can give you insight that it might be just a little bit underwhelming.
I think the valk 5 is one of if not the best 5x5 at the moment. It comes a bit clunky and slow out of the box but if you add something like mystic, dnm37 or lunar and break it in it becomes really smooth and fast.
Great big cube. Crazy stable. Magnets on inner layers are incredibly strong. Minor lock ups every once in a while, but no popping.
Set up with weight 5 and dignitas, feels like solving but you're holding a cloud and its what dreams are made of.
This 5x5 is to great for words, don’t doubt it in any way, It is the 5x5 for anybody and everybody.
