But don't be fooled, no magic, this line is cheap with all the consequences. I have 4x4 and 5x5. Assembling quality is quite good except of unequal tension of the 4x4 and extremly loose of the 5x5, but the plastic is hard and cheap, center caps of the 5x5 tends to fall out. IMHO.
Well, yeah, but this was to be expected given the price (a 7x7 under $10). I'm not terribly interested in this cube itself (I might try it out later at a local physical store), but it's the size that's exciting imo. Given the overall trend, it wouldn't surprise me if the next generation of 7x7s will approach 65 mm and maybe one of two of them will go lower, and 6x6 cubes might start fitting into those 64 mm Yuxin boxes.

In Cubing Classroom overall, MF8 was "alright" and MF9 was actually really quite nice, imo. It's pretty sad that most Youtube reviews / unboxings mention that these two are very tight, and that's it. Once you loosen them up within reason, and break them in a little bit, they are quite decent. MF8 is a bit too flimsy for its own good perhaps, but MF9 is actually *great* as far as budget cubes go.

The size trends are interesting of course, but I think It'll end up at the reasonable balance between the size and the usability (not counting souvenirs).

Putting magnets in the 4x4 looks reasonable
It seems so ;)....

Speaking of that, does someone by any chance know what this mini 6x6 in the background is? Seems to be 56 mm or even 55. Maybe something that already circulates in the Chinese market but hasn't made it to the usual, Western community-oriented stores yet?

The photo is from LimCube, showcasing their new puzzles in the foreground. I messaged them asking about that 6x6, the message was marked as read but I got no response.

Lefun Ghost Pyraminx, but actually a Ghost Skewb in the shape of a tetrahedron. Notice the presence of the other 4 corners (which don't exist on a regular pyraminx). Ghost Jing's Pyraminx then, if one is to be pedantic.

I hope this functions well; the FangCun Ghost Skewb (Tony Fisher's Golden Cube) didn't have torpedoes on the skewb centers and it popped literally on every solve, which is a lot of headache for a ghost skewb with all the orientation problems.


Also, to whom it may concern, the cube in the post quoted below turned out to be a LimCube Mini 6x6 indeed. 54.6 mm! I believe they have an old 3x3 and 2x2 at exactly this size.

Currently available at HKNowStore, soon at other stores too, I guess. Seems to be made only in stickerless, which honestly kind of sucks. I was hoping for a black-with-stickers to complete a certain sub-collection. Does anyone have experience with dying stickerless plastic into black? Will it be consistent, or am I better off obtaining a force cube (i.e. fully white) and dying that one?

I am guessing that MoYu will release a new top paraminx. The MoYu magnetic skewb used to be the best skewb everyone used. Then it was losing popularity so MoYu released the AoYan.. The MoYu magnetic paraminx is losing popularity so possibly they will release a new magnetic paraminx. let me kknow if you think this will happen.
