I am pretty new to cubing (Like a month or less). But I'd like to get a 3x3 which does not lock up and is pretty good, but not too good because I'm only solving like sub 50s. I have been using only my modded Rubik's brand cube. So I think I want a cube with pretty good reverse corner cutting and minimum lock ups. The feel doen't really matter. Also I can't look ahead yet.

Get any cube you desire. Watch YouTube reveiws and find one that you think would be good. I personally like the GuHong v2 and ZhanChi.

Go.

I would say that the V-cubes are still the best.
The V-cube 5 is a very high quality cube, and is good after some breaking in.
The V-cube 6 is very good after modding, and is still very fast even after only partial modding.
The V-cube 7 is very highquality, although I would reccomend the SS7 only if you have large hands, otherwise it is very hard to handle.

I am looking for a new puzzle that I can enjoy solving for quite a long time. I want either Pyraminx, Master Pyramorphinx, Square-1 or Skewb Ultimate. I was mostly thinking about Pyraminx and Master Pyramorphinx, but I just wanted to make sure what do you guys think.

Closest thing I can think of is a Zhanchi with torpedoes, and set on loose tension with enough lube to make it very fast. As long as you aren't too rough of a turner, the torps should still prevent pops even on very loose tensions. The guhong v2 might also work, but I don't have experience with it so I can't be sure. I think that is what you are asking for...
thanks. Also, does anyone here have an AV(or any alpha cube in general), and could you try and compare it to the Zhanchi and Guhong V2(cuz I haven't got an AV)

I guess I would describe it as 'crisp'. The Dayans are quite smooth and glide well. I personally like the 'crispness' of the AV although it's personal preference. By the way, if you have a WitTwo the AVs feel similar to that.
