The Valk 3 Elite M is the long-awaited flagship from the famous Valk line by QiYi MoFangGe. Light and fast with a smooth, comfortable feel, the Valk 3 Elite M is favored by many cubers who enjoy fast turning with a uniform, consistent magnetic feel.
The Valk Elite M comes with clear nuts (standard strength) and clear magnets in the center caps (standard strength).
This cube features a brand new magnetic system with three different levels of strength. The moderate and strong versions feature a "twin-magnetic" scheme and use "center-edge" plus "corner-edge" magnetism for positioning. Additionally, QiYi introduced its own version of an elasticity adjustment system that also conveniently reduces spring noise.

While this cube is by no means bad, I feel that it doesn't quite live up to the hype around it. While the turning is very smooth, it is very rigid and can't corner cut much past 20-30 ish degrees.
I don't want it to sound all bad, I know some people like really tight stable cubes but i just don't think it's the right cube for me. However, while i would not main this cube, I am a huge fan of the very tactile clicky feeling given by the strong magnets, making it a nice cube to just spam things on with no real purpose.
I stopped cubing about 2 years ago and my main was the Valk 3. I was excited to hear that it was still being improved upon. The customization is not as good as other cubes. This cube still uses a screw for tensioning. I did like how it came with an extra set of stickers, and stickers for the replacement center caps. Overall, disappointing.
It feels great out of the box and is super stable yet also fast!
I usually use a lot of MoYu cubes as my mains. This cube is unique that it can fit any turning style. Personally, I think the simple colored springs are great and the magnets in the center caps really do help. Amazing cube definitely recommend
I have to turn more accurately to get better times because I usually use the RS3 M 2020 and it’s faster but I also get more mistakes because the cube is flimsier, and there isn’t a cube that is super stable and has great corner cutting, so it’s just a trade-off you would have to make. Now the Valk Elite is really good, and to me it feels like an upgrade over the valk, it’s faster and has better corner cutting. So it definitely has its place on the market.
For me, it’s the best cube ever in my collection. Same level as the GAN XS in my opinion. I consider this as my main. I’ve used red center cap and green springs. The best lube to lubericate the pieces is DNM-37, Lubicle Speedy, Cubicle Labs Silk, silicone weight 2-5. Angstrom Celeritas, gravitas, dignitas and Lubicle 1
Core lube is Lubicle black, weight 2-5 and cubicle labs silk
THANKS FOR READING THIS REVIEW
It works. Hard to tell the difference with the magnets. Might be best to add your own. Given that it’s not worth the money.
OOTB the cube felt very oily but also dry. It felt like the cube was dumped in a bucket of not so good quality lube. I had to wipe the entire cube free of the lube. After a while, I heard a lot of spring noise so I lubed everything all over again with the GAN magic lube (legal definetly) and then it felt like heaven. My main before this was the moyu meilong 3m which was bigger by a few milimeters but I really felt it. The Cube felt so smooth and m slices wer amazing. Would definetly reccomend this cube for Roux solvers.
Valk 3 Elite M
This cube is really smooth, very quiet, and has nice shades. The corner cutting is fine and the cube`s look is amazing, especially with the primary internals. The only issue i have with this cube is the corner caps, which randomly pop put while solving. This doesn't happen very often though.
