# Best under-$10 magnetic 3x3 that comes in both stickered and stickerless forms? #### zslane ##### Member Currently I'm eyeing the Qiyi MS 3x3, but I'm open to other suggestions. My goal is to get one stickered and one stickerless of the same model. My main concerns are magnetic strength and stability. I don't like cubes in which the magnets are so weak I can hardly tell they are there, or cubes which come out of the box loose and unstable. Maximum speed is not a priority for me. #### Tabe ##### Member The Yulong v2M and Thunderclap v3M are both excellent options as well. #### Spacey10 ##### Member Currently I'm eyeing the Qiyi MS 3x3, but I'm open to other suggestions.

It's like you are describing the MS! The magnets are medium strong, and it comes tight OOTB #### zslane ##### Member Where would I find a Meilong 3x3 M in stickered form? #### JP cubing ##### Member rs3m 2020 thunderclap v3m Meilong(surprisingly good) I don't like the ms tho Last edited: #### EngiNerdBrian ##### Premium Member Currently I'm eyeing the Qiyi MS 3x3, but I'm open to other suggestions.

The Yulong v2M and Thunderclap v3M are both excellent options as well. It sounds like the MS will work for you. I find the magnets are very noticeable (definitely stronger than the Yulong V2m) and it is very stable and "blocky" compared to many of the budget cubes i have. I have not used a thunderclap V3m for comparison. #### zslane ##### Member Ah, yeah, that's what I thought. I'm looking for a model that comes in both stickered and stickerless. #### mukerflap ##### Member RS3M 100% i dont know why you would ever buy anything else if you only have 10 dollars #### Spacey10 ##### Member The only reason he is buying these cubes is to have stickerless and stickered versions, why are you guys recommending cubes that only come in stickerless? #### zslane ##### Member The 2019 version of the RS3M comes in both stickered and stickerless, but: • It is$15.
• I have a stickerless one of these and the magnet strength feels a bit too subtle to me. (I feel the same way about the 2020 version as well.)

Yuxin little magic. All my mains are stickerless but I like the stickered little magic so much more it’s like a completely different cube

Yes hahaha they wear really fast if your running over 50 solves daily but it’s an incredible difference like the original Valk M but it was the opposite in that case

Idk if that made sense lol okay, my opinion

YLM stickered - Amazing, best budget non magnetic cube
YLM stickerless - wtf is this?
Valk POWER M stickered - KMS
Valk Power M stickerless - Marry

I certainly think so. I bought a white Little Magic last month and, well, the stickers were poorly positioned and the puzzle was way too loose. I peeled off most of the stickers and tried to use it as a Cross practice cube, but I didn't even like it for that.

There definitely must’ve been either different batches or just a huge variation in out of the box tensions Because my stickerless was stupid loose and my stickered was absolutely perfect. Mine is the standard black one tho maybe the white ones are crappy like the stickerless
