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.

Not very smooth right out of the box. The YJ was alot smoother. Not bad after some tuning and lube.
Bought this cube nearly brand new off a friend. I loved how it felt initially, and made it my main after about 500-600 solves. All of a sudden one day I was getting a ton of catching and corner twists nearly ever other solve. I did play with the setting again and was satisfied for a little while until the same issues were happening. The corner caps do come loose sometimes easily when your solving (see photo !) and makes it uncomfortable to finish solves. I’ve decided to no longer use it as my main as the Elite has too many flaws which may ruin averages in a comp setting. I had high hopes for this after paying $50 CAD for this I honestly can’t recommend it. The regular Valk M from 2016 is still far superior to both the Elite and the Power to this day and it’s nearly half the price.
Out of the box, this cube wasn't fast at all. It was slow, and had bad cornercutting. After a while, the center caps started to come off more often and it became anoying to put them back on again. I don't like the green shade too. So this cube is slow, hard to customize, and has bad cornercutting. It's ok
Very nice cube. Very smooth once broken in.
I purchased a Gan 11 before this. And only purchased this because I have developed an obsession with collecting cubes. It’s one of the nicest cubes in my small collection but I choose the Gan 11 over it.
I keep two of these on my desk as my goto cube, love solving with them.
I have had every Valk 3x3, and I've never been disappointed. I really wanted to like this cube, but unfortunately it doesn't quite match up to the GAN 11 M Pro. The Valk is smooth and turns like you would expect a Valk cube to turn, but it lacks the tension and travel customization ability that the GAN has. The Valk is still using screws to adjust tension and there isn't an independent feature for adjusting travel distance. This means that you have to spend a lot of time switching out springs and tightening and loosening the screws in order to find the setting that works. And even after all of that effort you may not be able to find the exact set up that you want. You may have to sacrifice control for corner cutting, or vice versa. Next, the magnet system allows you change the strength of the magnets under the center caps, but not on the corners. The center magnets are the main magnets on this cube and thats a problem because the corner magnets are much more effective at controlling the cube because the are further from the center. Center magnets make solving a lot less smooth. If I could increase the corner magnet strength, then I could use the lighter center magnets and the cube would be much smoother and enjoyable to solve. But since you can't adjust the corner magnets you must use stronger center magnets, and the difference is noticeable. It's not a bad cube by any means, but it's not at the level of the GAN right now.
i love this cube ..but my orange white piece has a little gap in it and it bugs me lol
I've had this cube for the past month, and I LOVE IT. This cube is so steady, and is really fast at low spring tensions, and pops very little. IF YOU WANT IT FAST, DO NOT PUT WEIGHT 5 LUBE IN IT. Dnm-37 works the best, and now it really works well. Besides all of that, I have 2 problems with it. The first is pretty minor. The cap magnets are great. I love the strength of them, but the magnets in the corners are pretty weak. I'm the kind of cuber that really likes strong magnets, so that was pretty disappointing. Speaking of corner magnets, some of them have actually been falling out of the sockets. It's HORRIBLE. They make this really quiet cube rattle, and the magnets on one side could be really weak, and on a different side, super strong. I probably just need to hot-glue them back in, but seriously? Come on! On top of that, this thing is really hard to change tensions. It comes with 3 different strengths of springs, but it's a pain in the butt to change the tensions. My friend has a GAN 11m Pro, so I can't help but be jealous of the spring system. So basically it comes down to this. Get this cube if you are dead set on getting your times down (I dropped about 10 seconds on my average.), like moderate to strong magnets, like customization options, and are okay with maintenance. If you are not okay with maintenance, get something like a GAN X V2.
The action and movement of the cube is fine, The setup and adjustability is option rich, but is difficult to change settings quickly. My biggest gripe is the colors of the stickerless cube. They aren't as contrasting as I would have hoped and in a low or high light situation colors blend and aren't easily identifiable.
