Valk 4 M (Strong)
The Valk 4 M is the first 4x4 speed cube in the iconic Valk line. It measures at a compact 60 mm across, making it more comfortable to hold and turn. When turning each layer slowly, the cube has a very comfortable, stable smoothness. When turning faster, there is a pleasant, slight hint of crunchiness. Corner cutting is quite flexible and is on par with other top 4x4's. Used and endorsed by world-class cuber Mats Valk himself, this puzzle is sure to please solvers from beginners all the way to seasoned professionals.
This version has stronger magnets.

This is the best 4x4 I tried. At first I didn't like it much, but after breaking in its super nice. Its better than the Aosu WR M for me. I Will Recommend To You All!!
Do not even try it! It pops like crazy and lock ups really easy. Bad corner cutting and really overestimated!
It is the dream cube if your ok with a little too much popping
I think the valk4m is a great puzzle but it kind of locks up and pops frequently though it is a very good budget cube.
I love solving this cube. It has a very subtle crunchiness, while having a lot of smoothness and speed. If you like the feeling of other Valk cubes, this will not disappoint. The Valk 4 is my main only because of that. The Valk is a bit better to me, but it takes a lot of setup. I would call it, The Lube Drainer. It needs frequent setup, and it takes a lot if lube to set it up. In the long run, you are saving miney buying one of the Moyu 4x4's but the Valk is a better cube to me. It's hard to maintain speed with the Valk 4M. But if you like Moyu cubes more, definitely buy the Aosu GTS 2M or WRM, because you will probably like it more.
P.S if you are picking between the Standard and Strong version, I'd say pick the strong version. It makes it just a tiny bit slower, but keeps it way more stable.
Initially, I didn’t think this cube was not as good as my WuQue. I was more used to the good corner cutting and the speed of the WuQue, but after adopting a lighter turning style, this cube is amazing. I chose the Valk 4 over the WuQue just because of the softer, more “pillowy” feeling as I like to say. The performance is identical, but the feeling of the cube was what made me decide to switch. I set my Valk 4 with the Ångström setup, Gravitas, Dignitas, and DNM-37. This results in silky smooth turns, yet retaining it’s original speed. My only problem is that the magnets in the inner layers feel small. That’s the only way I can describe it without you trying it. The inner layer magnets are really strong.
Doesn’t pop during OLL Parity
Good corner cutting
Inner magnets are too strong
Inner layer reverse corner cutting isn’t great
Overall, this cube is amazing. It replaced my old main, the WuQue Mini M.
As a sub-40 4x4 solver, I think this puzzle is absolutely mindblowing. The outer layers of this puzzle are unmatched in feel. If you have a Valk 5x5, it feels exactly like the silky turning of that. The magnet strength is perfect in my opinion! HOWEVER, the inner layers are my biggest gripe with this puzzle. Though the strong magnets do well in keeping the puzzle extremely stable, doing fast sequences of inner to outer layer moves such as parity causes multiple catches especially if you have inaccurate turning. If you don't average under 45 seconds, I believe this puzzle does absolutely everything you could want in a 4x4! However, if you wanna go Max Park or Feliks level speed, the Aosu WR M may be a better option of considering if you want to be world class.
The inner layers catch occasionally weird, but not during solves for some reason. Other than that, I love this cube, and its my main.
So the cube right out of the box felt kind of tight... the inner layers were pretty bad and felt bumpy and you can totally feel the magnets and it was kinda slow. However, the outer layers were AMAZING!!! It was so good that I got a PB of 0:12 secs. On 3x3 stage. Well at least it’s fine I would say...
Get the cube it’s actually good.
This is great I tried this cube and I ended up buying it 5 minutes later the magnets are the perfect strength and I have only had one pop when I tried its limits and tried to corner cut past 45 on the inner layers but it was minor and popped only like 3 pieces out I would defiantly recommend this especially to GAN XS users.
