Problem 3: Pops
Solution: Tighten the face
That's not the problem. The centre caps on most of the Wu series big cubes sometimes come off very easily. It's especially bad on the Wuji, but it also affects the Wuque, Wushuang and Wuhua (v1; don't know about v2). This seems to be caused by inaccurate turning: relying on corner cutting too much applies some pressure to the side of the centre caps, which leads to them being dislodged.

However, if they're coming off literally all of the time, it's very likely that you have broken centre pieces. Especially so if you've been trying to force a misaligned core to fit.

Problem 1: Cube not breaked in
Solution: Remove lube, do hundreds of solves
Problem 2: Center piece misaligned
Solution: There's a slot in the long pole that will fit in a thing poking out on the core. Alligning that instead of forcing it down with pure strength should fix the problem.
Problem 3: Pops
Solution: Tighten the face
ive done about 300 solves on the thing, on average, how many solves do you think it takes to break it in?

My 3x3 is very floppy. I thought it was because of the tensions, but now I tensioned it, it's stiff and floppy. When I shake my cube it makes a loud noise from the corner pieces that are loose. When I disassemble the cube, the corner end doesn't "stick" to the edge piece. I didn't disassamble the cube alot so it's not because of that. I can't buy a new cube, so what do I do! I have an MFR3S2.

Maybe some of the sides are missing springs?

Has the cube always been like that, or did it become terrible only after you did something to it?

Problems with Qiyi 3x3 Warrior W..?

Hi guys, It's my first time here, and my cube slips a lot from my hand, sometimes I want to rotate a layer and I move all three at the same time, the middle seems to move a lot! I bought it a week ago, and I do not know if I'm finding it strange because I'm not accustomed, or if the cube is very smooth that I can't even control it... The cube almost escape from my hands all the time!! Please help!

I am newbie in this speed solving world, my record is 1:11, I am pretty slow.. But I am getting better :)

Try putting some thicker (30k-50k, weight 3-5) silicone lube to slow the cube down a little.

Also, try not to turn super fast. If you make sure that your finger tricks are accurate and calm, you shouldn't have any issues.
However, if you try to spam 6 TPS (turns per second) move sequences, you might have trouble holding onto your cube.

What's up with my Little Magic?
The Little Magic is the only speedcube I currently have, but for some reason, it doesn't seem anywhere near as good as people say it is in reviews and such. The corner cutting is not even close to what I hear it's supposed to be. I tried loosening it but it just makes it really unstable and pop more often, and barely affects the corner cutting. Because apart from the Little Magic I've only ever tried a Valk Power and GAN cube (not sure which one), and only for a little bit, I'm not sure if it's supposed to be this way since I don't know if this is what a speedcube of it's supposed tier should be like. I haven't tried lubing it, (I don't have any lube), so that could be a problem, but I doubt that because of not having lube it would make it this much worse.

yuxin little magic m is my only 3x3 speed cube too. before lubricating the cube, it is bad at all, super fast and very uncontrollable. after lubing and tensioning it, it performs super good, with good controllability.I used moyu v3 lube, which is an heavy lube, then a tiny bit of water base lube. The normal cornercutting is 55°, which is better than some flagships. the reverse cornercutting is just before a cuby piece, which is fine for me.
I recommend you to magnetize and lube your yuxin little magic, as yuxin little magic m is the best cube showing the power of magnets. yuxin little magic is very unstable and uncontrollably fast without magnets. I used 4*2 n35 in my yuxin little magic.

Okay Buddy, the little magic is a presently nice puzzle. It's got Yuxin's trademark speed, excellent corner cutting, and overall potential, AFTER SET UP... Unless you take the time and money to lubricate, correctly tension, and experiment with, almost any puzzle will seem bad ootb. I'm just a noob, but I've had over 25 puzzles and none of them were perfect ootb. Firstly, heavy lube makes a huge difference... Second, you're tensioning it wrong. I would never loosen the little magic. It would catch, and eventually pop. Only tighten it... Third, The little magic needs magnets to be really good. I originally used lite magnets from the cubicle, but I've found that strong magnets are really needed to tame the puzzle's stability and speed issues. Lastly, in my opinion, the little magic is the best budget puzzle on the market if you take time to set it up. Chances are its not a dud, just needs work.

Do you think yuxin little magic m is better than the rs3m and the YJ yulong v2m?
