Has anyone tried their Wuque M? I'm too lazy to make my own 4x4 M, but I'm worried that cubicle versions of magnetic cubes are too strong for my preference. I hope they can post some statistics (not necessarily the strengh and size of magnets as that would be trade secret, but something more general like the pull between pieces) so I can compare between their cubes.
The force from the magnets in the WuQue M feels stronger than in my Gans Air UM, but not too strong. I'd say they're a good medium.

That's too bad, because even Gans Air UM is a bit too strong for me. I hope they can make a lite (or even a customizable) version for the Wuque M.

I think the effect of the strength changes with the order of the cube. Slightly stronger feels right on 4x4 because the cube is more sensitive to alignment and it takes a bit more force to turn anyway, I think what would be considered medium/weak on 3x3 would be too weak on 4x4.

Your working with the labs? @4Chan, what is the design proposal @Sion is proposing?
Only our dev team (labs isn't involved with it) knows about the specifics, but it's a special corner and edge division strategy that will end up making magnets customizable.

I would've been glad to work with @4Chan, but they already are working with other people.

How long should I wait in the processing stage before I should be concerned? I ordered a XingHen M 2x2 nearly 2 weeks ago, and i'm just curious what the normal wait is for it to ship.

Ordered an Wuque M two weeks ago, arrived a few hours ago… and one of the wings is missing a magnet. Pretty disappointing, especially since I don't feel like waiting two more weeks for a replacement piece (or maybe replacement pieces—I haven't checked every piece yet) to arrive.

E: Yup, it's missing two magnets.

E2: Meanwhile, the GTS2M has somewhat sloppy magnet placement and there's glue where there shouldn't be, on multiple pieces. What the hell?

@4Chan I'm wanting to make a magnetic 3x3 that has a subtle feeling and I'm trying to see what an acceptable gauss level would be. If I position them in a similar manner to the way you do (more to the outside rather than toward the core) would a pull force of 5000 be acceptable? Most of the puzzles I've seen are about 5300-5400 for "normal" strength. Going to be doing a lot of M slices so I need lowish magnetic pull :)

TLDR; What gauss level should people look for to make a subtle feel on a 3x3
