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.

This cube feels kind of like the Valk elite. The plastic looks cheap and it's loud, that said I get pretty good times on it and like more than I thought I would.
I hate it when people exaggerate about how poorly cubes perform, because hardware has come so far in the last decade that I think 99% of the cubes you can buy from any manufacturer will serve you well.
This cube is that other 1%. The holy grail of garbage. It’s very bad.
Right off the bat, out of the box, this cube turns remarkably poor. The plastic is cheap and thin, the magnets are too weak to offer sufficient stability, and the holes in the corner pieces gliding across the edges as you make a turn have an annoying, high-pitch, clicky noise that sound so far beneath the threshold of quality.
The cube is just so flimsy, which was bizarre, because to date this has the most magnets of any 3x3 Maru has released. However, since all of the magnets are too weak to begin with, adding more doesn’t solve any of this cube’s numerous problems.
Also, this is probably the first time I’ve gotten the stickerless variant of a puzzle and regretted purchasing it over the stickered version. The finish, while not exactly frosted, is a very muted glossy, which on its own isn’t bad. But the shades are just pitiful. Kudos to whoever color-corrected the shades in the pictures above, but it’s so misleading because this awfully dull, off-yellow beige is just frustrating to look at.
Beyond that, all of the magnets are held in place by glue and haphazardly applied, because despite this being, again, 2022, this magnetic cube does not have any magnet slots, which means they’ll likely fall out after extended use.
Do not buy this puzzle. There’s so many better 3x3’s for so much less money. Anything beyond the absolute bottom-of-the-barrell budget offerings will far surpass the capability of this puzzle.
Save yourself the hassle. This is *not* worth it.
and it didn't pay off. There were no english reviews on the internet so I decided to buy this cube and maybe I could find a hidden gem. Well, this cube is worse than my budget cubes. It feels unstable and the plastic feels extremely hard and cheap. It is very clacky, loud, and airy but in a very bad way. The corner to core magnets have some nasty glue residue and the yellow color also looks very bland, so don't be deceived by the photos. This honestly feels like a 4 dollar cube being sold for 24. The only reason why I'm giving this cube 2 stars is because after setting it up it performs ok.
