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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

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

Awesome cube but not the best

Changing the settings is hard, and although I can turn the plastic thing it’s really hard and my fingers hurt. And by the way it’s easy to pop and the first one I bought broken because it lost a magnet and there aren’t any replacement magnets, that’s the main flaw of clamped edge pieces, the GAN 356 XS doesn’t have clamped pieces so the magnets won’t fall off.


this cube is sooooooooooo good, You don't even know. I got my first sub-30 Ao5 on it, and even kept the box, cuz it looks SO COOL! one of my favorite 3x3s, definitely recommend it to someone who breathes air.

Best cube I own so far

I recently got into cubing and have had a lot of fun, but hadn’t been able to get a good cube to practice with due to very tight budget, but after saving up for a few weeks, I finally bought the YJ MGC3 Elite and I have 0 bad things to say about it. After a few minutes I had it customized to feel exactly how I wanted it to and have had a lot of fun with it since getting it.
