Product Description

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. 

 Comes with:

  • Valk 3 Elite M
  • Cube box
  • Two additional spring sets (red = strong;  green = weak)
  • Two additional center cap sets (red = strong; green = none) 
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Extra logos
  • Cleaning cloth 

 


AKA: Valk3 Elite M, Valk 3 Elite, Valk3Elitem, Valk Elite, Elite M, Elite, Valk3Elite

Its ok, but lacks customization

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.

Valk 3 Elite M

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.

Difficult colors

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.

Es un buen cubo

Es un buen cubo rápido tiene buenos imanes pero en veces hace pop opino que si se ajusta un poco mas no aria pop por lo tanto es un buen cubo si te gusta lo rapido

Ultra light, very fast

Between this and the GAN 365 XS, my opinion is it just comes down to preference, slight texture difference, no real time advantage one vs. the other but I'm also just a passionate novice cuber. I did like the little case and lid it came with too. Fun little addition to the coffee table. I would recommend this to others and think it was well worth the money spent!

My one negative on this cube is the color differences are hard to see contrast in low light conditions.

Love it

I really like it. Out of the box it was very oily and nasty. After restickering and setting up, it became much better. It corner twisted a lot but after tightening, it was good. It’s now my main. I feel it’s in between a valk 3 and a gan x respectively. Great cube!

My cuber loves it

My cuber loves the Valk he ordered! He is sad, however, that he was unable to get a holiday card signed by Max Parks. :'(

Far too expensive

If your turning style is anything short of very light and perfect then this isn’t the cube for you. The most unforgiving cube I’ve ever tried. The magnetic valk 3 is a much better choice and far cheaper.
