The YJ MGC 5x5 is a magnetic 5x5 released by YJ under the MGC line of puzzles back in late 2019. Out of the box, the MGC 6x6 is super smooth and boasts a medium magnetic feel. This particular 6x6 speedcube has been well received in the speedcubing community and is a must-have for any serious cubers collection.
As of early 2020 this is one of the go-to 6x6 cubes on the market for many world-class speedcubers and will forever go down in history as one of YJ's most successful releases.

This cube is combination of Valk5M and Aochuang WRM 5x5. Spring are loud.
I bought this along with the mgc 4x4, and compared to that, this is probably better (imo). the 4x4 came dry (check my review) ootb and was quite scratchy, whereas this needed no lubrication and was great ootb. imo, this is probably worth that extra few pounds over a budget 5x5, as it is great and can compete as a main contender.
overall, I can see what the online reviews were talking about: praising this cube, and I can say nothing more.
I started with the little magic and then picked this up based on the reviews - It is brilliant. The magnets are more defined than the Yuxin giving a nice positive bump when the layers are in the right position. A few drops of lubrication and a quick tweak on the screws to tighten the tensions and it flies.
At £20 less than the Valk it is also outstanding value.
The MGC 5x5 is probably the best 5x5 for it's price. Out of the box it is quite loose and pops often but after tensioning, it is amazing. It has great conercutting with a smooth feel and a defined magnetic bump. If you are looking for a budget friendly 5x5 with great performance, the MGC 5x5 is the one for you. The Valk 5 is slightly better in my opinion, but the MGC is still a main killer.
This 5x5 is probably the second best 5x5 (1st being the Valk 5M). but...
this cube pops a lot and can turn a 50 second solve into a 60 second which really screws up my 50 second average and makes it a 55 second average.
