I really want a sitckerless 4x4...

try moving the wing piece next to the center, maybe that'll fix it

btw that's happens to me on my 7x7 sometimes, and I always fixed it

also why did the poll closed?
MGC is pretty good but maybe the Qiyi xman. I never tried it though.

I fixed it after I took the photo.

The poll closed because I thought I had a good number of responses. I can reopen it though.

I need a budget stickerless 4x4. I don't want to use too much money.

I'll get a MFJS MeiLong 4x4 but stickerless.

Well, this isn't really a progression but I obtained a GAN cube from a friend. I offered to set it up and now I can't identify it. I think it's a older version and I confirmed that the tensioning is adjustable by hand.There are number 0.6 and 0.8 on the adjustable center. Blue "nut".

0.8 = loose
0.6 = tight

Alright I am done setting up the cube from my friend! First of all I cleaned out the cube for the first time since it was bought (This cube is actually not his cube but a borrowed one from another beginner cuber(So spoiled...) and he basically doesn't care about it) and boy did it make a mess... Then I moved on to tensioning the cube. I used the 0.6 settings which I think is the only viable setting in this thing. It still feels a bit loose though. Finally I lubed it with Silk on the inner pieces and a dab of DNM 37 on the outer for some speed. Overall it works pretty well even though I still don't like it much. I think the tension system is not that good and it just doesn't hit that "sweet spot" for me. My thoughts are that a good speedcube does not have to be expensive and it only needs to be customized well for you. I might do an Ao50 on my cube and this cube to compare it a bit more tomorrow.

So laying out my current plans :
()means further plans

3x3
1. Full OLL (Sub 1.5)
2. Learn a method to improve blockbuilding (Secondary method?)
3. Buy a stable cube

4x4
1. Have a sub 2 Ao25 (Ao50, Ao100)
2. Learn better pairing techniques (3-2-3)
3. Learn Yau (Maybe Hoya)

Other
Preferably try some shapemods (Really want the axis and ghost even though I probably can't solve it)
Buy a megaminx as my next Christmas gift (Hopefully)
