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 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!!!!
This is an amazing 5x5! My previous main was some budget QiYi 5x5 which was decent but nothing compared to this.This has good shades,good magnet strength,good corner cutting but it does pop a bit which can be annoying. I set this up by lubing the core with weight 5 and lubing the peices with weight 5 and lubest pro(I also put in some Maru).This is a very good 5x5 and I love it and can definetly recommend it!
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.
