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.

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.

I really love this cube, the box is sooo cool.
I bought the stickerless lubbed version, it arrived a few hours ago btw, and I've just noticed it has scratches all over, I'm ok with that since it's just small scratches but mainly on the white center is where it has more scratches :( rip valk symbol

Upon unboxing this product I was extremely happy with the aesthetics, however immediately regretted the purchase after feeling the weight of the puzzle, after only 100 solves I have changed my position and can no longer go back to my aolong v2! Fantastic cube!

Great cube out of the box. Fast, light and fluid. A must have for any cubers collection.
Different but in a good way!

At first this cube feels very small and light,but after a few solves,as you get used to it,it is absolutely fluid.I got the white one which suits me as the fluorescent orange,light green and yellow make look ahead a doddle. A well made cube,more controllable for me than the Gans 356 even though the construction is similar (springs inwardly).
Glad I purchased this and the delivery was very speedy.Thanks.
Small, light, and VERY fast

This was my first 3x3 purchase since the Weilong V1 back in 2014, and I was skeptical about the rave reviews... but it turns out they're very much deserved.
Please note that this cube is 55.5mm, rather than 57 (as is generally standard). The very slightly smaller size does make a bit of difference - some algs feel a little different and it takes a bit of getting used to. This cube feels well made, and turns nicely, especially for those with slightly smaller hands (like me).
I find corner cutting on this cube is insane - M slices especially are far more fluid than on my Weilong. It hardly needed tensioning out of the box, although I do have a little spring noise on one face even after dismantling and lubing.
I've had a host of PBs already on this cube, it's great. I don't think it's "too fast" at all, and I average around 20 seconds. Maybe a little hard to control if you're just starting out, but its down to personal preference.
