This is why I need to get sponsored by Yuxin. To get them to make the Tindal 4Oh, now I get it. You were saying "Valk 3" to me, not TheEpicCuber.
The Valk 3m was never a budget cube. Qiyi was trying to make the best of the best for one of the fastest cubers. It wasn't something they tried to cut corners on and make a quick buck. 3x3's are way different than big cubes. You can use most 3x3's since the Valk and still get the same times, the same isn't true for bigger cubes where hardware has improved dramatically since 2019.
