Hi. I'm a returning cuber (I haven't cubes for 1.5 years) and I am going to buy the MGC V2 as my weilong GTS is quite outdated. Does the stickered cube have quality issues with the stickers?

I think the stickers are pretty decent, but the cube is a little bit underwhelming, especially considering that there are better budget options. Great to see cuber coming back though!

I’d actually recommend getting something like an MF3RS3 M for just a little cheaper. It seems to be a bit better than the MGC V2.

Well here in the UK the mf3rs3m is 20% more expensive (on Amazon. I recived j a £25 Amazon gift card and I want to buy a cube with that). Is the extra cost worth it compared to performance?

DO NOT BUY CUBES ON AMAZON. Scams are possible.
Only order from a REAL Cube Store.
Since you live in the UK, try buying cubes from speedcubestore.co.uk.
It’s much safer.

Plus, a lot of titles of cubes on Amazon are incredibly misleading, long, dumb, and just sound stupid.

Scams? What type of scams? The seller has a 4.5 star rating and with free returns is it worth the risk!

it never hurts to order from a real cube store. Speedcubestore.co.uk has been know to scam, but I ordered from them and they actually shipped fairly fast, however they are actually based in china. Order from Dfanti-x on amazon if you order from amazon. If you have a $25 giftcard, I would buy a gts2m https://www.amazon.com/D-FantiX-Wei...le/dp/B0711Q4W2N?ref_=bl_dp_s_web_11748076011

hopefully that helps

Some titles are misleading. It may say something like Valk 3, but in some cases, people have ended up with something like an AoLong V2 or GuanLong. It’s not worth the risk. Just get cubes from speedcubestore.co.uk. There’s less of a risk.

well, im a chinese so, i would say aolong 2m is great and cheap, i think it only cost 2 || 3 dollar. also, buying cubes on its own shop is often safer.
i dont know whether you have some website like Taobao or 1688, but thats my choice.

yuxin little magic M is better than the mf3rs3m.
You may refer to the poll result in the budget high-end 3x3 thread.
