2nd 5x5 that I own and first magnetic, the feel of using the cube is amazing. Just a little bit of setup and I'm flying.
The MGC 5x5 was such a huge improvement over my previous 5x5 (a budget non magnetic one) and got me into 5x5. Out of the box, it was loose so I tightened it by 360º. It was incredibly fast (maybe too fast!) so I added weight 4 and mystic and now it's super buttery and quick. The only issues I had were a few centre caps flying off when turning too aggressively and a bit of spring noise. Apart from that, this cube is a joy to use and the best economy 5x5 on the market, so go ahead and pick one up if you have the budget, you won't be disappointed!
Rootb this cube was fairly loose and unstable, aswell as dry. I soon fixed this unstable feeling by tightening the screws by half-a-turn on each side, and I made the mistake of then putting lots of Lubest XMT-10 in the puzzle, making it way too fast. But recently, I ordered some weight-5 and mystic lube and after putting a generous amount of weight-5 as near to the inside as possible and by just putting a drop of mystic on the outer layers, this cube is now buttery smooth yet still very controlable and stable. So, if you decide to purchase this cube then I would recommend getting some weight-5 and some mystic lube aswell, (If you don't already have these lubes!)
This is my first 5x5 and I really couldn't be happier. The cube is smooth right out of the box and with a bit of tweaking only gets smoother. The guys at Kewbz dispatched my order the very next day so great service from them. What more can I say, brilliant!
This cube is epic. It costs less than 20 pounds and is nearly as good as my valk 5 and its half the price. The outer layers are fast and don't lock up much. The inner layers are also speedy and don't lock up too much. What can I say, get this cube!!!!
