Qiyi / Mo Fang Ge Valk 3 3x3x3
The Valk 3 is the cube used by Mats Valk to set the world record of 4.74 seconds in November 2016. This was later beaten by Felks Zemdegs by just 0.01 seconds
A very light cube, with thin yet high quality stickers.With design input from Mats Valk, whom the cube is named after.
Slightly smaller than most speedcubes at 5.55 cm per side, it features many innovations.
Hollow sections on the base of the centre pieces reduce friction
New centre pillar technology, helps to avoid lock-ups and cube deformations, resulting in greater overall stability
A lot of friction reduction tracks around all surfaces of the cube, to improve turning speed.
Precise arcs to enhance corner cutting ability, without impacting the stability of the cube.
Unified edge feet help to reduce lock-ups.
Squared off corners help to prevent corner twists.

This cube is one of the best 3x3's on the market and has become my new main
An amazing cube

The Valk 3 is a beautiful speedcube with a unique feel, when you first get this cube, you will notice that it is crunchy, unlike the smoothness most cubes arrive with. Whilst it is crunchy, it is still fast and very controllable. After breaking in the cube for a few days, it becomes less crunchy whilst still maintaining the speed and control. Another thing you will notice during your solve is that the cube is smaller than other cubes, only by a fraction but it is noticeable.
I would recommend this cube definitely.
One of the best

The Valk 3 is really fast so it takes a while to get used to it. I also bought a lubricant to keep it fast everytime I solve it. I used to have an average of 21 seconds and after 1 month with this cube I managed to have an average of 18 seconds, having times of 13-15 seconds very frequently. I would recommend this cube, stickerless if possible so that you don't have to worry about the stickers and in my personal opinion the bright colors in the stickerless cube makes it easier to recognise all the pieces, specially when doing F2L.
If you are not sure about which cube to buy because there are so many in the market, I promise you won't get dissapointed with the Valk 3. You can also check out the Weilong GTS V2 and the Gans 356 as these are the main competitors.

The cube is incredible, with a great feeling. It is easy to put magnets into, and it feels really nice. Only issues with the cube itself are the stickers easily chip, and my corner snapped (hence why I bought another).
A surprisingly smooth cube

At first I felt confused using this cube. It felt almost too fast. However after adjusting my turning speed I've found my averages have dropped considerably.
I have the stickerless version and the colours really pop, they're easy to see. Wonderful cube!

This is really the best cube. Colours, speed. Perfect for me.

This is such a nice cube, the colours are very vibrant compared to my Sail and Thunderclap, it's got good corner cutting and doesn't pop or lock up often. It's light, compact and turns with speed. Out of the box, it's fast but controllable, and is very sturdy. The cube has a slight springy sound, but I haven't tensionned it yet. The box is amazing, looks very premium
Overall, the only faults is that it's reverse corner cutting could be a bit better, but don't let that stop you from buying it!
Best 3x3 on the market even better than the gans air but a little bit fragile

I got it yesterday and i already broke my pb : 12.48 but i got a little problem : when i received the cube it was very tight and sandy so i disassembled the cube lubed it and when i tried to put the last edge as it was really tight the torpedo plastic got diformed and almost broken. I tried to fix it but i'm scared that it brokes.. Can i get a remplacement piece or cube? This would be awesome.
Btw my cube is white

The best cube I've ever had, even better than Gans 356 Air Master Edition
A lovely puzzle!

This is my favorite puzzle in my collection. I recently bought this puzzle. It was a bit on the pricy side but I think that this is the best 3×3 on the market. It has brilliant turing and corner cutting. This cube has cut down on my times dramatically.
However this puzzle is a bit small but it fits my hand size perfectly. It also is very kight weight so it might not be for every cuber.
This is by far my favorite cube and i would recomend this to anyone.
