Mine came pretty tight out of the box, and it was really slow. I basically had no other choice but to loosen it. I don't have any magnets I could use right now, but I am gonna order some lube next time I purchase cubes so I can use it to make it better. I was just confused since so many people say it's really good out of the box.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.
