Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

Got the maglev kit to go with it very fast. Top notch
It's been a while since I've used such a good SQ-1. Last time was when I had a Volt V2 and YLM. What sets this SQ-1 apart from others is how well it can corner cut and how fast the U and D layers are. No SQ-1 has it better.
This cube has a problem out of the box, and it's a constant catching problem that happens pretty much every solve. To fix this problem, I recommend setting up the puzzle. I'm not a genius on setting it up, but I recommend a faster set up to help with the slower slice layer. I struggled to give this a 5-sztar rating because of these out of the box problem. I've heard many pro cubers have modded it to fix the catching problem and added Maglev to it. Those will srt you back a few dollars though, so take it as you will. Even with the above mentioned problems, I still much prefer it over the X-Man Volt V2 because of the faster U and D layers and the godly smooth feeling that you get after setup.
This was a great delivery and it was set up very nicely. It was a little sticky when I got it out of the box. Overall just a great experience!
This cube I’ve heard pops a lot, but I’ve only heard that from really fast people, like Sub 10. If you are Sub 30+, then I think you should be fine on the pops.
Way better than my old square 1
Only rating 3 stars though because of how much it pops. I get that square 1 is not the most structurally sound cube, but THIS much popping is absurd. I average 1 pop every 2 solves. Competing with this cube and hoping this doesnt happen.
Thanks for your review! If you remove the blue and green side caps and tighten the screw by about half of a turn, it should stop popping.
Great puzzle 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting to get into the event. I first tried the puzzle at my last competition and instantly wanted to get it. It required some setting up to stop the internal catching, doing an angstrom set up using dnm, gravitas, a bit of mystic and a lot of weight 5 (weight 5 on the core for reducing the internal catching) and it is basically an instant main. This puzzle finally re ignited my motivation to finally re learn how to solve it and it’s enjoyable each time to turn it. I also got the maglev kit so I have mainly been using it with maglev instead of springs, either way it still feels very nice, would buy again if mine ever breaks.
Buy this cube im telling you BUY IT! Warning: do not turn inaccurately or it will lock up/pop
Also buy the maglev kit
Looks cool too
Just want to fill out the form to get rid of the notification. Anyway, the product is actually good.
