Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

I got this puzzle and it was my first nice 6x6. I had previously used two budget 6x6s and they were not great, but this was surprising. It felt very smooth, while somewhat heavy... I have an aggressive turning style, so if I go at my top speed I will deal with a few lockups, however, I have dealt with less than ten in my whole time with this puzzle and have not had any bad lockups. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a 6x6!
This may be the only 6x6 I have, but I couldn’t ask for more. The inner layers are harder to turn alone than the outside layers, but that isn’t a big deal to me. That makes it easier for people with smaller hands or while solving like a 3x3. I’m very pleased!
I see a lot of people saying that the inner layers are too slow. At first I agreed with them until I lubed it with 3 drops of dnm in each layer. After that each layer was about the same speed with the middle and outete being the fastest. Better than mgc
This cube is very stable and the turning is controllable, but the layers are way too slow especially the inner layers, and that’s a pain when doing parity algorithms. The MGC’s layers are very fast, but they aren’t controllable. Wherelse, the YLM 6x6 M is a combination of control, smoothness and a reasonable speed. This cube is too overpriced for its quality! I wouldn’t recommend this cube unless you like slow cubes. The YuXin 6x6 M is way better and is slightly better than the MGC in terms of stability. Hope this review helps.
For about a year it was ok, then one day (today) I went to solve it, then I noticed than the cube just decided to not turn on several sides, it only went about half way befor it would exploded, I took it apart to see what was rong, the center cap in the core broke off some how, I super glued it and put it back together, and the same thing happened, it would not turn, this is horrible, now I have to get a new one, this time from speedcubeshop to see if its any better, but this was the worst thing ever!
Cube is crazy slow, and slugish. I finally got a decent setup after many tries, because when I made it loose it would pop and catch, and when I would tighten it, I could barely turn it. I mean to be honest its good for a 6x6, I mean the second best after the MGC but still.
The cube is fantastic! It hardly never locks up and no pops happened to me. I broke my PB 5 times and I would say , it definitely worth its price!
I've had every major 6x6, as it's my main event (avg around 2:30) and i'm still surprised as to how mediocre the hardware is compared to 5x5 and 7x7. This is tied with my YJ MGC for the best 6x6 right now, but I still wish the hardware was more in line with the other big cubes.
This cube is a great puzzle, but the middle are way to slow, but other that that it is good.
the plastic feels cheap and it locks up on every piece of the cube. do not get this cube
