Both X-Man Shadow M and AoShi GTS M are great 6x6. However, which one is the best?

Which one is better without magnets?

I've tried both Shadow M and Aoshi GTS M in a physical store in my city, and I feel that Shadow magnets are too weak, especially on the inner layers. The outer layer sometimes carries the second layer with it.

That was about 5 mins of messing with each of them though, so not exactly a thorough familiarity.

Also, the thing I dislike about Qiyi's big cubes is the primary internals on the center pieces (while the edges are fully colored). This makes i.e. red centers and red edges to appear differently; the edges have a dark outline around them and the centers have a pale, white-ish outline around them, when you look at the face head-on. It's not *super* noticeable, but it's there and doesn't look good aesthetically, imo.

I have heard that the X-Man Shadow is easier to pop than the MoYu AoShi GTS, but it is faster than the AoShi GTS.

Any of those two, it is personal preference. I prefer the Aoshi though, it has slightly stronger magnets.
Have you ever got any pop on your AoShi GTS M?

Honestly, the performance between a magnetic and non-magnetic 6x6 is so huge it really isn't worth getting the non-magnetic 6x6 just for the sake of saving like 10 bucks.
6x6 budget - Yuxin Little Magic 6x6, Cyclone Boys G6
6x6 great - MoYu AoShi GTS
6x6 expert - X-Man Shadow M
Should we put MoYu AoShi GTS (non-magnetic), X-Man Shadow (non-magnetic),Yuxin Little Magic 6x6 or Cyclone Boys G6 into 6x6 great?

Honestly, I don't think there are any great 6x6 in between "6x6 budget - Yuxin Little Magic 6x6, Cyclone Boys G6" and "6x6 expert - X-Man Shadow M".
