X-Man Volt has long been the best square-1 on the market. However, Yuxin has rolled out a new budget square-1, which is fully magnetic. Some square-1 experts even switch their main from the X-Man flagship to the yuxin little magic square-1 M, which is quite a bit surprising. However, the question is, which one is the best?

I prefer the volt but don't use it due to pieces breaking

Ylm sq1 needs B mod to be good
I have done half of the b-mod on my yuxin little magic m Square-1 (adding magnets to the edges and cutting away the dome of the core), and it works great. After adding 4*1 magnets to the magnet slots in the edges, the top and bottom layers gave a loud clicking noise. I glued the magnets in place and the noise has gone. However, the top and bottom layers felt sluggish even after lubrication. I cut away the dome of the core and the top and bottom layers have become faster but still controllable. The slice is very fast since the magnets in the slice is weaker than the top and bottom layers after the b-mod. Overall, my yuxin little magic m Square-1 has improved by a lot after doing the b-mod.
