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.
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.

Hmmm... that's strange... I've never heard of a slow little magic, most of the time they're wayyy fast... next time you purchase cubes, be sure to get some little magic stickers. You'll need em....

Mine was very tight ootb too, but it was still crazy fast. Only thick lube will help.

leven Williams told you to buy stickers as leven Williams thought that your yuxin little magic Is stickered version. Stickers on the stickered version of the yuxin little magic are awful. However, as you have got it in stickerless, you don't need stickers. Just ignore that.
I'd really recommend you to get some magnets (4*2 n35) to magnetize your yuxin little magic. Also lube it with heavy lube.

I just got the new YJ Yusu v2m 4x4 and it's kinda crap. Covered in lube but dry; impossible to find a good tension; slow and unpleasant to turn. The slice moves are especially bad. It's much worse than the Mr. M. Anyone else have the Yusu?

I have heard that the mr.m is even better than the qiyi thunderclap mini. it is the best budget 4x4 and the best puzzle of mr.m series.
how often does the YJ Yusu v2m 4x4 pop?

It has never actually popped into pieces because I stopped turning, but it has seriously deformed and the pieces would have been pushed out of place if I had continued turning. I don't know what to call this other than popping. It has done this about 1/4 of the times I tried to execute a center commutator. I did one solve and a few more experimental turns before getting frustrated and putting it in the "curbside giveaway" pile.

Yes, I have it on loose tensions, but anything tighter and it gets too hard to turn the inner slices. The magnet strength is much weaker than the friction between the pieces, which make the magnets entirely pointless. This is after DNM37.

Edit: yeah, I love the Mr. M.

Edit: I'm so screwed. I tried a center commutator and got a deforming lockup. So I tightened it a full turn, tried again, and this happened. Two commutators, two lockups, and one interior piece missing. I'm not really motivated to fix it.

So earlier today I put the yellow GES nuts into my relatively new gan 356x for the first time. But I Just started to run into strange turning issues after doing some solves (It doesn't turn as smoothly and it feels like there's considerably more resistance, outside of the normal stuff of tightening a cube), and it has developed a very loud spring noise on pretty much every face. also, one of the M slices now makes a weird, really loud click sound whenever it turns, and for some reason it sort of fuses to another layer unless i force them apart
Is this a normal occurrence and i just need to get some lube? (I haven't put any in, as i'm relatively new and haven't really had the need) or is it a bigger problem?

Hi y'all

I'm a brand new cuber who likes to get into speedcubing. Therefor i bought a mf3rs2. But straight out of the box all my faces make a strange squeaking/ rattling noice (it sounds kind of like some sort of spring idk). Is this a common issue? Can i fix it or should i send it back?

Thanks! :)
