My QiDi is set loose and is butter smooth. In contrast, when I got my MGC it was as rough as rats... It was covered with bloom and glue spatter and it just felt like I was grinding plastic every time I turned a layer. I had to take it apart, core lube it, sand glue off of some of the contact surfaces and re-polish them and clean off the bloom. Now it's better but the magnets still catch where they shouldn't and the whole solving experience is not pleasant.

As you say though, that's my opinion based on my puzzle.

egh. my qidi was almost the opposite. it was scratchy and gross, and it was waaay too tight. i hated it and have ordered a yupo to hopefully replace it.

From what I've heard, it's good but not enough to have big influence to the market, due to its ridiculous price for a 2x2 and a "just above average" performance.
The MoYu WeiPo WR M is at the same price as the Valk 2 M on cubezz, while the GAN 251 M is almost double of the price of the MoYu WeiPo WR M and the Valk 2 M.

Yes, we know that Moyu is making a Weipo WR M. This has nothing to do with what is the best 2x2, is should belong in the upcoming puzzles thread. Stop making useless bumps. If a thread dies, it dies. Get over it.
There was nothing to do with 2x2 and Valk 2 M was the best before the release of the Moyu Weipo WR M. However, Moyu Weipo WR M has been released and it can be a game changer. Their previous Weipo was already a very good 2x2. I believe the WR M is an upgrade from it.

I have heard that the GAN 251M is even competitable to the Valk 2 M. We will have to see which one is the best among Valk 2 M, YJ MGC 2x2, MoYu WR M and the GAN 251 M. Valk 2 M and the YJ MGC 2x2 are the two solid options at the moment.
