The YuXin 8-Petal is a magnetic NON-WCA puzzle and comes at a great price. Straight out of the box it is extremely smooth and fun. The magnets offer a very distinctive clicky feel which is strange due to the puzzle being a non-wca variant.
Approx Size: 56mm3

I got this from a lucky dip and very happy with it! Didn't need any algs to solve it, easy enough to figure out yourself. Turns great and the magnets are nice. Bit dry/tight ootb so just lubed with a couple drops of XMT-10
This is a fun puzzle to solve and basically a speedcube version of the Moyu Redi Cube.Ootb it was a bit stiff but after lubing and a bit of break in it was good,I was actually able to solve it myself(I had no Redi-Cube experience before)and I find it fun! I still have not looked at a tutorial because I like my own method and I recommend this cube!(which is one of the only magnetic non-wca puzzles btw)
This puzzle turns extremely well. It looks very difficult but not a shapeshifter, so it's easy once you learn how it works. It's magnetic as well so the layers can't wobble around like a blob of jelly. Using this for a long session may tire your fingers so I suggest putting it on a table and just twisting it like that.
I previously used the MoYu Redi cube, but it locked up frequently and was an overall horror to turn. This cube is magnetic, and has curved pieces which resolve the problem. This is a good non-WCA event to get into and I would recommend this cube for it.
