An MGC 4x4 sounds like it's either the best cube in the market or a major disappointment. 4x4 hardware are famously not so good and there had been many disappointments in 4x4 history (We are looking at you Aosu GTS1 and The Valk 4 M). I never tried any 4x4 hardware but I heard things are not consistent in terms of size and inner layer performance. So let's hope an MGC 4x4 gets rid of all the jokes of 4x4 hardware like the MGC 6x6 did for 6x6 hardware.

P.S: I am aware that there are many people who really like The Valk 4 M and even use it as their main. I am saying it is a disappointment as the reception of the cube is rather mixed as there are people who really did not like its performance.

The MGC 6x6 is a huge leap forward, but there is still room for improvement.

Gan,

You have barely updated your base design since 2015. Please update your base model to something new.

Pro tip from a fellow desisnger: optimize the i design for a comp legal model. It has a ton of potential due to the large inner radius and would also be extremely light.

If you specialize in 3x3, start making new designs instead of making minimal changes to one design and selling it at multiple price points.

#### Kit Clement

That's because we specialize in 3x3.

Also custom stickerless schemes: sell puzzles as a core/hardware and pick 6 of maybe 12-15 colors. People would get 7 baggies of parts and assemble it themselves. Shipping should cost the same or a little less, and you skip the step of actually assembling the puzzle.

I swapped out the edges of the gan 356M with gan 354v2M edges and vice versa and it feels very similar, the two cubes are the same design. I reckon I can push that further, at some point I think I'll try and make a cube with a complete mixture of pieces from the xv2, xs, 356M and 354 v2M and maybe even the original X, please make some new designs, Gan

Really good. The YuPo is my 2x2 main over the MGC, and I use the YuSu as my 4x4 main. The 3x3 is also really good for its price. I have heard the 7x7 is great too, I would highly recommend all of them.

They are pretty good, the 3x3 is very good, especially if you get the pro shop version from The Cubicle, the 4x4 is great, but I think the Little Magic M is a little bit better because it has better corner cutting, but as a result is a little bit more unstable, and the 2x2 is just standard and good, like most 2x2s. I haven't tried and others.

The Yulong v2m is very good.
The Yusu v2m is above average.
The Yuchuang v2m is pretty good, probably the best budget 5x5.
The Yushi v2m is very good, fast and good performing.
The Yufu v2m is fantastic. Super-fast. Highly recommended. The best 7x7 under \$40.

The MGC 6x6 is better than the Yushi but you won't be unhappy with the Yushi.

Thanks for the advice I just ordered the Yuchuang V2m, lubicle speedy and Weight 5 from @speedcubecomau which is cool
I will probably order a yushi and yufu when I feel like doing big cubes. So is the Yu V2M line basically a budget MGC line. I mean the MGC line isnt even that expensive
I also predict that YJ will overtake Moyu and Qiyi soon with the amount of cubes at good prices they are selling, and how much they are posting and growing on social media - insta and facebook i think

#### 2018AMSB02

I also predict that YJ will overtake Moyu
Actually, a little known fact is that YJ owns MoYu.

But cool that you are getting the cubes, and yeah MGC is pretty cheap, I got the MGC 6 for less than 20 dollars and it instantly replaced my 40 dollar shadow.
