Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

My order was shipped back to the sender for an insufficient address, and they said they would respond when they receive the package. It’s been almost a week now, and there is still no response about my order or where it is right now.
I was stuck using an uncontrollable GTS3 M as my main, ever since my GAN XS’ core bent, and I can tell you right away, the Valk 3 M will be my new main for a very long time.
OOTB the cube was a little dry, and slightly tight, but it was still fast, yet controllable. It overall had that same classic original Valk feel to it, that we all know and love.
After throwing in some Traxxas 10k on the pieces, and loosening the tensions by about a quarter of a turn, the cube became even more pleasurable to turn. It was fast, but still remained controllable, and catches and lockup’s became a rarity, meaning I can still maintain fluidity in solves, especially with its amazing stability.
Corner cutting gets an A+ from me, over 45 degrees forward, and about 3/4 of a piece for reverse, however, this may differ, depending on your tensions.
At the moment, I can’t think of an issue that would be considered significant.
Within the couple of weeks I’ve owned this cube, I’ve already gotten a PB single of 10.39, and I highly recommend this cube for everyone.
I made a review for this about two weeks ago saying it was almost as good as wrm 2020. I was wrong, it's BETTER (for me). I averaged 16 on that cube, now I average 15 on the valk. I also got a 13.06 ao5 which is CRAZY and my first sub 14 average. They don't matter as much, but I do want to mention I've even got a lot of 12s and a few 11 single solves. I love this cube so much, it's stable and crunchy, so you don't make very many mistakes while turning, and I like to keep mine at medium speed. Unlike what I mentioned in my previous review, this cube after a lot of break in does not feel at all like a qiyi ms anymore. I also find that weight 5, or probably any silicone lube, does best in this cube for me. silicone lubes give your cube a tactile, light feel which is perfect for me. I can't make recommendations to anyone faster than ME, but i think this cube may be your favorite if you average 18-25. This cube does see some competitive usage, even in modern day, but most people have strayed off to the customizable cubes. The valk's feel is so unique though, and that's why some people haven't stopped using it.
A little small for my giant hands but great nonetheless
I just want to say, this cube blew my mind. If I had to explain what it was like, it feels like a QiYi MS, but more compact and stable. It still has the speed of the MS, but slightly slower, plus the blocky feel. Unlike other fast cubes, it's hard to make this one slow. I lubed it with Angstrom Dignitas and Gravitas, my go to for most cubes, and it did slow down at first, but after only about ten solves it went back to being super fast. I also want to throw in the fact that this cube does better at tighter tensions, and require accurate turning to use, if you aren't like that I recommend a MoYu cube, because they are more forgiving, versus QiYi's more stable cubes. I actually use a variety of different cubes with different styles, so this was simple to adapt to for me. I personally prefer it over the Valk Elite, but I think for most it would be the opposite. This is actually one of the best cubes, shown by the fact that it's the oldest model cube that a lot of people still use over other cubes. This is in my top two cubes for 3x3, the other being the WRM 2020. I'm not sure which is better, I have to break it in, but that fact that it's at least 2nd place, is already a great feat for it.
It is extremely fast and the magnets are amazing, but the smoothness is not very good. Still, great cube!
it was good but now ive got to wipe it out it had a nice blocky feel wich i didnt get out of most other cubes so in general i reccomend it as a cube that like everyone likes
It turns really good, and has multiple settings making it so you can set it to what you want it to be.
Considering how old this was I didn't have very high expectations going into it but wow! It is now my main over the valk elite m and the mystic wrm
