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.

On its own, this is a pretty good cube. The feel reminds me of the Valk 5x5, and it's surprisingly quite. Needs a LOOOOOOT of break in. When broken in, it's still a distant 2nd to the MGC 6X6. I like the cube, but it doesn't really compete with the MGC.
This is probably my main 6x6 and I like it better then the YJ MGC
Very good cube but after many solves on it. As many other qiyi big puzzles the shadow v2 is quite bad out of the box (lockups, catcthes unstability...). I wouldn't recomend it if you just got into 6x6 because this a quite difficult puzzle to us but after some training in the event and also setuped the cube it is very good. Lighter and faster than the v1. It also pops a lot less than the MGC which is why I prefer the shadow v2.
To sum up I would recommend it if you already experience on 6x6 and if you're getting your first good 6x6 go for the MGC it's cheaper, easier to setup and to handle but the shadow gives better performances and has a better feel ( in my view).
This is by far the best 6x6 I have used. Finally, a 6x6 that doesn't pop (or at least feel like it's going to) all the time! I can turn fast on this cube without worrying about pops. Switched from the Yuxin Red that I used to main. My first solve on this cube was almost a PB single. I improved around 20-30 seconds from around 2:40 to around 2:10 to 2:20.
Really great 6 x 6 I have not had any high-end six by sixes so this feels really great to me Corner cuts really good in the turning is really smooth
Out of the box it, the turning is kind of sandy feeling but after some breaking in, its great, and so fun to solve.
Still 5 stars don’t get me wrong, but the second layer of the 6x6 has not very good corner cutting. Other than that, its fast, smooth, and for me perfect.
Love the feel of this cube. Real good craftsmanship, in that the cube holds its shape while doing the edges.
Miles ahead of the MGC6, If you ignore a few minor lockups here and there.
6x6 Hardware is a really hard thing to get right. Combine that with a turn style that isn't well-suited to poorly engineered puzzles, and you can imagine why I (as well as many other people) have a hard time with 6x6 stability, etc.
All that being said, the X-Man Shadow V2 is a good, noticeable step in the right direction for 6x6 engineering. We may never have a perfect 6x6, but this puzzle is pointing us in a good direction. Definitely worth the price tag! Can and do recommend for any intermediate-to-advanced 6x6 solvers (I average mid-4 minutes)
