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.

It can be a bit tedious with the core magnets but I like the idea that the little tabs on half of the core parts fit into the corresponding holes on the other half, making more of a snug fit. With tweezers, a pick and steady hands I used Weld Bond to glue the pieces in place.
Now the cube is incredibly stable, I am beyond thankful for this kit as it makes the cube become reliable and smoother than ever. Becomes very much like the Moyu Weilong wrm v9 special. These two became my main.
Couldnt recommend this more, I hope to see future kits for other cubes, especially shape mods and larger cubes! Like 4x4 Aosu 4x4 WR M.
The overall kit was great, but installation was a bit tricky. Since the V2’s core is so small, I had to use tweezers to assemble the core. I guess it was not Maru’s fault, though. My one slight complaint was that one of the magnets fell out during a solve, but some super glue fixed that. Overall would recommend for someone who wants to upgrade their tornado, which felt great with the core by the way. Just don’t expect self-aligning.
Makes the cube more controllable and stable.
The core magnets in this kit are also wider than the Cubers Home version I like the feel of these much more, and also makes more of a substantial difference.
For assembling the core, I 100% recommend cutting the nubs off the core pieces Like Phil does in the video, it makes it way easier to install.
Like I said in the review title it's a pain to get the magnets onto the core. I struggled a bit to get the 8 core magnets one to the core since the center can't be taken off. At the same time 4 of them have little tabs and the other 4 have holes for the tabs to snap into. I used Gorilla brand Super glue Gel to fit all 16 magnets to the cube. Super Glue in the gel form is much better for the 8 core magnets since it doesn't have a super quick drying time and it's not super liquidity as regular super glue. So that means that it won't flow like a normal liquid. But overall these magnets are a worthy upgrade and will make the cube slightly more heavier than without the additional 16 core/corner magnets.
