YJ ZhiLong Mini Magnetic Cube Bundle
This bundle contains all three of the recent YJ Mini Magnetic Cubes: The ZhiLong Mini 3x3 M (50mm), ZhiLong Mini 4x4 M (56mm), and ZhiLong Mini 5x5 M (58mm)! All of these puzzles are significantly smaller than standard size. They each offer amazing performance and with some light setup, they're capable of world class times! Great as a gift or for your collection, the YJ Mini Magnetic Cube Bundle is a great chance to get a good deal on these fantastic miniature puzzles!
The 3x3 is okay. But the 4x4 and 5x5 are the cheapest quality. Out of the box, these cubes popped so many times that i am not able to fix them at all. These cubes are very fragile and you should not buy them. Bad choice.
Thanks for your review! If you get a cube with popping issues, it is most likely too loose. Tightening the screws should get rid of the problem.
Can't go wrong with any of these cubes. Yes the 5x5 is a bit on the small side, but more than functional. I would say these are almost flagship quality in terms of performance.
I was originally just going to get the 4x4 (my other 4x4 was basically and heavy and my hands are very small), but I decided that since I had some interest in all of them, I would get the bundle.
The 3x3, which is the size is a standard 2x2, is very fast with nice turning. I really like the feel and the magnet strength is perfect.
The 4x4 has good performance and I love the size (same as a standard 3x3), definitely my new main. I only have one problem, and that is that it makes a squeaking sound sometimes.
The 5x5 is also my new main, it is very nice. After tentioning it, everything was perfect. The small size is great for me.
The YJ mini 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5 are shockingly good for the money and I recommend all of them if you have tiny hands or are a fan of mini cubes like me.ffF
Here's a review of each of them individually:
50mm is very tiny but it feels good in the hands. I usually carry a mini 3x3 around with me and previous to this it was a 42mm Zhanchi. However, this cube is better in every aspect. It corner cuts well, it's magnetic, and it has such a nice turning feel. It could work as an OH cube if you wanted it to but the magnets are pretty strong. The actual feel of the cube is fantastic though and if there was a cube with the same feel but scaled up it'd likely be my main.
Easily the best of the set. Its a bit small for my hands however anyone who has small hands for an adult or is a younger cuber will love this cube. It can compete with the MGC in terms of performance, and is for sure mainable. If you're on a budget and/or have small hands this is a great option!
Not as good as the 4x4 but still viable. 58MM feels really really small, and going from the 5x5 back to a regular sized 5x5 is more jarring than with the 4x4. Still, it's a great cube, albeit quite fast and hard to control. I'd reccomend putting some slower lube in it and tightening it a bit out of the box. Again, if you're on a budget this is a decent option if you can tolerate the size, but I think that the jump in price to get the MGC is worth it.
They're all pretty good, and the 4x4 is very good. Out of the box they all had a lot of spring noise and didn't feel too good, so they'll need a proper setup. If you're a fan of mini cubes I think that these are the best in the market, but I think that only the 4x4 is worth it if you're looking for a new main. They're overall novelties unless you have tiny hands to match or enjoy carrying cubes around with you. That's why I bought them. Just goes to show that its not the size of the cube that matters but how you use it :P
