I’d include the YLM M, it’s only 10$and is one of the best squans there is, regarless if price #### Fukuoka Kengo James ##### Member I’d include the YLM M, it’s only 10$ and is one of the best squans there is, regarless if price
the yuxin little magic square1 M belongs to square1 great.
Also, should I include it into square1 expert?
Square-1 budget - Yuxin Little Magic
Square-1 great - Yuxin Little Magic M
Square-1 expert - XMD Volt

I would say yes, but the XMD volt is also a great. It has to have magnets to be expert-tier

Do you think that the yuxin little magic square1 M is comparable to the X-Man Volt?

If the volt is non-magnetic then yes, I don't know if or how much the volt is better than the YLM M

I have a cubing classroom square-1, and it pops in every solves. pieces fly far away like a toy gun. The cubing classroom square-1 is a complete trash. However,I don't know why some cubers are using it as their main.

So my squan came earlier than expected, last night, and I’ve had time to break it in and stuff before telling you all this.

Tl;dr: It’s a fantastic squan that is kinda locky and nice light magnets.

My squan main before this was a qifa. This will become relevant later. Out of the box, it was pretty good. It felt dry and very locky; I couldn’t do parity without 5-7 lockups. This was due to me being used to my qifa, a much slower squan w/o magnets. I put some lube in just to make it feel less dry, and it worked. I did some solves, set it aside, and then did some more. The later solves were better than the first ones and now it feels really nice. Very happy with this purchase. If you don’t have a squan and have the money, get this one. I think a lot of people were complaining about magnet strength because they are so used to their volts with strong magnets. However, I really enjoyed this one, and I think it’s very good!

Yes that's TCKewbs.
Do you think that the yuxin little magic square-1 is still better than the qifa if it does not have magnets?

No. The nice thing about the qifa is that it;s controllable naturally, while the YLM is not. However, I do prefer it to a magnetized volt, so if you’re going for the nicest squan possible, go with this one or the cubicle version of the YLM.

E: forgot to mention that I really like the feel of the YLM, a lot more than the qifa

the problem with the qifa, is that it strips very quickly, if you have somewhat high tps.

I have heard that the QiFa has fantastic corner cutting.

Does the yuxin little magic square-1 strip?

No, I’ve done hundreds of solves and I’ve had no issue, but I think i have heard of it happening to others

Is it possible to self-magnetize the Qifa?

#### TomTheCuber101

The QiFa definitely, not too sure about the YLM though, that non magnetic one may have a different design in the peices to the magnetic one. I’d just get the magnetic YLM though as it is only a bit more.
