    My review of a customized (stronger than stock magnets) XMan Shadow 6x6 from SpeedCubeShop:

    I wonder if there are different batches, or the differences in construction between the M and non-M pieces make a difference. I know there are a lot of people who really like the stock magnetic version. I heard that the magnets were weak, and also prefer stronger magnets. I just finished magnetizing mine, and I have to agree that it's really sluggish and grinding. I'm sure mine would be the same batch as yours: I pre-ordered from SCS.

    That's a good question re: different batches. Have no idea (obviously). I just know that I was truly shocked at how terrible it was out of the box and even after messing with it.
