1. F-II, GuHong is way too uncontrollable (don't get me wrong, so is F-II but less so)
2. MF8 version II, or get a QJ megaminx and mod it using LanceTheBlueKnight's mod. Or if at all possible, Meffert's. All you have to do to make it good is lube it :p
3. QJ
4. Don't know, but I would guess the first or last one, as it's made by Maru which is known for good cubes. But don't be sure of that.
5. Well, the Stackmat timers are good, and it's nice that they have the dataport that can plug into the computer, but it costs a lot more. QJ timers are just as nice as stackmats, the only difference is that it doesn't have a dataport and is cheaper. Also, it seems that QJ timers seem to allow all times, and Stackmats skip every .02 seconds. (I think. Link is here)
6. Either one, YJ is a little better though imo. It just lasts longer/doesn't break as easily.
7. Any one works, I like the Lingao magics but the Ghost hand Magics are also good. Pretty much any magic is good. You could just get a Rubik's brand.
8. I've never used the first one or second one, but the Maru lube is very good. Another great lube is D39, it is used by a lot of Asian cubers and in my opinion is as good if not better than regular silicone.
9. Never had one, but it looks fun/challenging, and probably turns well since it's made by Maru.

does the f2 feel similar to the ghosthand? How is it when it comes to popping?
Kind of, theyre both curved more than regular cubes. But the turning is wayyy different. For my ghosthand, its more stable and cuts corners better. But the FII is "crunchier" feeling and it makes very fluid and smooth solves. But stickers are better on GhostHand.

Im talking about ghosthand II btw....:D

Edison Or Haiyan Memory Cube? (I already have an Alpha V but I lost the corner. :()
Haiyan Memory. It just lasts longer and overall better. Edison has a special feel that you have to like, some people like it and some hate it, but the Haiyan Memory is one of those things that everyone likes ;)

And Haiyan Memory is generally cheaper I think.

I think you should either use Gu Hong, FII or Haiyan Memory. GuHong if you have not so accurate turning, FII if you like a bubbly feel, and Haiyan Memory if you like a crisp feel.
I have a FII and it is awesome.

Haiyan Memory is $25.
Edisons are cheaper.
That's the list price... If you get it off of Cameron, Cube Depot, etc., they're about the same price. (Give or take a dollar) So yeah...

Also, how's the GuHong compare to the Memory?
I think the Memory is a lot more stable. Not that the GuHong pops, it's just that it doesn't feel stable.

As for speed, they're about the same, and corner cutting is about the same as well. I like both cubes, but I think I prefer the Memory for the feel.
