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.

I have gotten one or two of these after Matty Hiroto Inaba recommended one in comp I got one and an mgc out of the box it needs a lot of break in but after some time it is just as fast and enjoyable as the mgc. (I’m not great at 5x5)
Good cube, although I either need to break it in more or fix the tensions as the turning feels rougher than on my other Valk5.
The shipping got messed up, but it got back to me eventually, and when I got it it was amazing, as my first 5x5. I'm going to a comp in February having 5x5, and even tho I got it 3 months ago and kinda late, I'm still thrilled with the turning. I rarely pop, and if I do it's an easy fix, better than MGC in my opinion. I just started averaging under 2 minutes and already have a 1:27 single, so I definitely recommend this cube to anyone, begginer or pro
Also if you want to get better, practice some 6x6, like 10 or 20 solves and go back to 5x5 and you'll be a bit better, but mostly jsut practice and lookahead
Very nice feel to this cube, really enjoy it. The packaging, presentation and little extras just make it that much better. Thanks folks!
The turning is so good, the corner cutting is flawless, the feel is phenomenal. Enough said.
This 5x5 is a good 5x5 for cubers who turn slower, however for cubers who like to turn fast like me, it isn't great. This cube comes out of the box on a tight tension, and I have trouble doing last layer algorithms because it is hard to turn the outer layers fast without it going out of control. On one solve where I was doing very good, I tried doing an OLL algorithm and I accidentally turned multiple layers, basically ruining the solve.. However, this might be good for beginners who need work on their finger tricks, because very fast cubes might make a beginner use bad finger tricks sometimes.
Thanks for your review! Due to the nature of our Angstrom lubes, puzzles may be slow out of the box. However, after 50-100 solves, they should speed up quite a bit.
I don't know why I say this, it's an all around amazing cube. I get great times and love the magnet strength... But sometimes I go slow for the feel and the pure relaxation that feel gives. The clicks into place are just satisfying.
I had to break in the cube and add more lube to make It feel nicer. And the tension is too tight...
Angstrom Valk 5 M
Was maybe slightly over lubed because it took quite a while before I could solve without lube getting all over my hands. Could also be a tiny bit loose because I get weird lockups. Otherwise really great job.
