The Kylin V2 is a decent and very usable cube. IIRC it competes with a little magic m, meilong m, and rs3m 2020 for best budget magnetic cube.

And the Qiyi ms. It's good.

I have the qiyi ms, a few of them, they're not tiled though they're stickers. Same as the Yuxin mentioned, it's tiled but it's sluggish.

I have rubiks, rubiks gan, gocube (pillow), yuxin, rubiks speed ... i think that's all the tiled ones i have, .. none are very good. Can't compete with any of the other cubes i have.

Qiyi ms, valk, mgc, mgc elite, dayan, gan, etc etc, .. any other stickered cube i have is better than any of the tiled cubes i have.

For some reason i can't find a really good tiled cube. The yuxin is probably the best.

The rubiks gan might be good if it were magnetic.

the Rubiks Magnetic (it says Speed on it) is very fast and easy to turn.

it would benefit from being slowed down, tbh.

If people like stickered, they can always add stickers to their cube. Or buy 6 cubes and make force cubes.

In certain instances that would work but what if you wanted a stickered flagship? Or, what if you wanted Stickered (Black) puzzles? Sure you could paint it but there's a reason people buy stickered instead of stickerless+DIY. It's just more practical to buy an already stickered cube.

You could buy 6 flagships and make 6 force cubes. Of course that would not give you black internals.

Personally I prefer the stickerless, but hate that yellow/white are too close in low light. Might add black stickers to one of them (not comp legal, I know - But black dots in center is not either, unless I can dokument I have a visual disability).

When I get my MGC Sq-1, I will surely replace the yellow side with the included black tiles. If all 3x3 came with black replacement sides pieces as well, it would be great.
