Updates: I'm moving to China soon and I won't be able to ship anything out after next week. If you are interested in any cube please inquire as soon as possible.

I played around a lot with magnetizing cubes. Now I've finally settled on my main I'm selling the rest. I'm also up to trades for cubes that I don't have (preferably new generations of stickerless pyraminx, skewb, and 6x6+ big cubes).

I'm in the US. Please pay me via Paypal or Venmo. You will pay for shipping if you want to buy. Domestic shipping is most likely going to be around $2.7.

All cubes are lubed, broken in and in prime condition. I made all the M mod myself. If not mentioned, cubes have stock stickers. I can provide pictures upon request.

(I have removed all the items that are sold. The following list only include available items.)
Cosmos Wuque M (stickerless, magnetized by speedcubeshop. I believe they used 3mm*2mm for inner layers and 4mm*1.5mm for outer. This cube is amazing and helps me cut my 4x4 from 75 to 65 seconds.) $60
Cubicle Xinghen M (black, barely used) $22
Gans 356 Air UM (macaroon, N35 4mm*2mm, home-made UM, see pic below) $30
Gans 356 Air UM (white, N50 4mm*1.5mm, home-made UM. Perfect for people who like weaker magnets, and very good for OH) $25

I have the following non-magnetic cubes that I want to get rid off:
Cangfeng 4x4 (stickerless, meticulously lubed, turns extremely well) $5
Aolong GT 3x3 (white, cubicle half bright) $3
Yuexiao 3x3 (brown) $3
Yuehun 2x2 (white, carefully lubed) $3
Moyu Skewb (black, mostly untouched) $3
Moyu Pyraminx (white, well lubed and tensioned) $3

How did you make the macaroon UM when the only gan U's are black?
I follow the process that they do making a UM. I take it out, glue the magnets on, cut out pillars that connect the pieces, and glue the pieces back.

Since I glue the pieces back, I cannot show you the inside. However, I can show you a picture of the magnets and the weight of the cube. The official UM is 75.7g according to thecubicle.us. In the picture below you can see that mine weight 76g (plus or minus 0.5). So I would think I've done a good job on the UM mod myself.

...but the U has a different mold and uses nylon screws for the pieces. Anyway, how do you think it turned out after you cut the pillars off?

You are absolutely right about that. The pieces are still very sturdy after I cut out the pillars. I don't think the feel of the cube changed at all after the UM mod (other than the magnetic pulls). Effectively I think the result of their UM and my DIYed UM should perform similarly since the outside of the pieces are identical, and I don't believe the integrity of the pieces is compromised.

Would you go the Gan Air Macaroon for $30?
If you don't want the plastic box and the set of G-series GES sets (purple, blue and green). However, I can have your preferred GES installed including those in the G-series. And you need to pay $2.7 shipping, so $32.7 in total.

I am willing to trade for the Xinghen M. Tell me if you are willing, and I will let you know what cubes I have. I have messaged like 10 people trying to get a Xinghen M :)
