I got this cube to get me back into the cubing community, I am currently setting PBS with it. I set it up with mostly Martian lube. After break in it turns smoothly and the magnets are strong which I like, it prevents lock ups and twists. I like the glossy feel. I got the stickerless version and it is now my main!


I haven't cubed in a while. And when I did, I used an Amazon speedcube since I wasn't well versed in these things. And now, like 4 years later, I have a magnetic cube that is really customizable. I'm really happy!

Pretty good

Feels and sounds a lot like the Valk Power.

Love this cube.

This cube is smooth. It does need some adjustments and lube. But over all a great cube.

Another flavor of 3x3 sweetness, probably my fav.

I really like the MGC series in general, and I have the 4x4 up through the 7x7, all of which are delicious to solve. The 3x3 MGC Elite is even better, because of the adjustable magnets and tensioning. Both are easy to change and the settings are repeatable so you can switch back and forth to find settings you like. You can adjust the tensioning with your fingers and the magnets require a small slotted screwdriver about 2mm wide (the one included in the box is too small so it's not much help)

Elsewhere on thecubicle I have another glowing review for the Angstrom RS32020+ ("My daughter and I fight over this cube"). And I stand by it.
But since I'm not competitive I don't really need to choose a "main" cube out of my three nice 3x3s. I simply appreciate their differences.

The MGC Elite is actually my favorite by a slight margin, because of the silky smooth turning feel and stronger magnetic alignment. A better cuber than myself might prefer it for being faster than the RS3, while still another might prefer the RS3's almost hydraulic feel and increased control. The YJ MGC Elite is a a very sweet cube.

Buttery Smooth

Bought this with the service as a gift. It's perfect, fast, and shipped without issues. Have already recommended it to a friend.

very snappy and stable

Out of the box this is a great performer and is easily a contender for a main.

Love it!

Just getting into cubing so my review is probably not going to be that insightful - but this felt great right out of the box. My son is still kicking my butt with his little magic, getting 35-40 second solves - while I'm sitting around 1 minute - but it's certainly not the fault of the cube! The only thing worth mentioning is that the gold 'M' logo wears off pretty quickly, but I don't really care about that.


Great cube! My only problem is a corner that pops off occasionally.

Great cube but not the best

Has customization but changing the settings is painful, because I can turn the plastic thing but my fingers hurt doing that, Center cap easy to fall off and very loud, and glossy plastic, which is the plastic type I don’t really like, my favorite is the frosted plastic(On the GAN 356 XS) and the pitch is so high that I don’t like it.
