X-Men Bell pyraminx has long been the best pyraminx on the market, and there were nothing comparable to the Bell. However, after the release of the Yuxin Huang Long M, there are quite a number of cubers switching their mains from the X-Men Bell to the Yuxin Huang Long pyraminx. So, which one is the best pyraminx?

What about the Moyu magnetic pyra? I prefer the x-man, but they both stack up against one another.

I have the HuangLong Pyraminx, and it is much better than the bell, it is faster, and more stable. the corner cutting is a bit worse, but the strong magnets help you turn more accurately, so that isn't really an issue. i have actually been able to break some PRs on it, which hadn't happened for like 6 months before i got the haunglong. (for reference, i average about 4 on pyra)

Proving my point. Drew using the Moyu M pyraminx because he is sponsored by them so it makes it look good even though the Bell or Yuxin is better.
Whatever guys. Fine. Just ignore the hundreds of 4 and 5 star reviews on the cubicle and SCS. PLENTY of people, (myself not included) like that cube. I'm leaving this thread now.

Drew doesn’t use the pyra because he is sponsored by Moyu, he is sponsored by Moyu because he uses (and likes) the pyra. Any cuber would be miserable if they were forced to use a cube for their main event that they didn’t like, and Drew is no different. Kevin Hays explained this in one of his older videos “I don’t use the Yuxin 6x6 because I am sponsored by them, I am sponsored by them because I use the Yuxin 6x6” or something like that. Please, use logic.

any opinions from sponsored cubers(sponsored by cube brand) are biased. MoYu pyraminx is much worse than the yuxin huang long m and the X-Men bell.

What @ImmolatedMarmoset says is correct (as far as I know and remember others saying), and I do not think that any sponsored cuber uses a certain cube because he is sponsored, but since they use that cube the company reaches out to them and offers the sponsorship to them. Also, I asked Drew why he likes the Moyu over the X-man Bell at Nat's last year and he said becasue he like the turning of it better and it fits his turning style. And he also has been using for a long time that he is used to the feel and is really comfortable with it. So all in all it is not because he is sponsored.

Your have a good point, but I still think Moyu sponsoring him influences his choice a bit.

Have you put ball bearings into the Yuxin Huang Long pyraminx? How does it work?

How strong are the magnets in the yuxin huang long m pyraminx compared to the magnets in the bell?

My final thought/post on this for now, is to find out if that is completly true or not, is you can have someone sponsored on your podcast and ask them there. Kind of joking, but it might work.
Good idea! I might!
He was using moyu products even before he was sponsored. Even if he wasn't sponsored by them, he would still recommend them.
Have better Pyraminx's come out since?;)
