There are quite a number of budget pyraminxes. However, only 3 of the budget pyraminxes are magnetic. They are the YJ yulong v2M, sheng shou mr.M and the Z magnetic. Are they better than the ball bearings pyraminx, and, which one is the best?

The question is wrong as the poll contains some non magnetic pyraminx. Please ignore the word 'magnetic'. I don't know how to edit the poll question.

YuLong V2 pyraminx is great, but the corner cutting is weird. The reverse is the equivalent of 45 on a 3x3, but the normal cutting is terrible. Even on tight tensions the pieces separate and it locks up/ jams. It is a slower pyraminx yet it has a great feel. Overall I think it is great for $7 but you should pay $8 more for a huanglong

What about the Sheng Shou Mr.M Pyraminx and the Z Magnetic Pyraminx?

That's the norm these days. That started when the moyumagnetic and x-man bell came out.

I have heard that the YJ YuLong v2 M Pyraminx has weak magnets, while the Z Magnetic Pyraminx and the Sheng Shou Mr.M Pyraminx has strong magnets.

What we call normal corner cutting on NxN are actually reverse on pyraminx because of the mechanism of pyraminx.
