So recently I sold some of my cubes, and I made about 60$ off of the entire ordeal, and I want to get a new 3x3 and 4x4. I was wondering if I should wait for the Gan xs or just get the X right now. Also any suggestions for 4x4s? My total budget is about 75 but could go up to 80.
Get the Aosu GTS2M for 4x4.

Hey guys, I’m not in the us but wanted to get scs’s halloween pack cuz it looks great, and to avoid paying pricey shipping twice, I waned to get myself a new 3x3, with PVC coating. Only their cosmic or supernova cubes can come with pvc coating, but I don’t want to spend heaps. I definitely want to get it magnetic tho, so I don’t have to magnetise it myself (I seem to not be great at that). I was leaning towards the Yulong V2 M, as I like my normal version and it’s cheap. Anyone tried that in particular before, or have experience with SCS custom cubes or pvc coating?

Oh and in terms of my cubing ability, I average right around 20 secs on 3x3 but pb is 12.9, and my cubes get a decent bit of use so wanting a cube that can stand a while and still be good. (My self-magnetised gan air has clocked at least 7000 solves by now and is still great, need a cube to live up to that age mark, at least a couple years).
Oh, and my turning style is relatively high tps, slightly rough (but working on that!) and is appreciative of easy corner cutting.


Any input would be highly appreciated!
Cheers!

These two really stand out in my opinion. Same price, very good cubes. Including PVC coating, they're gonna run about 55 dollars. In my opinion the YuLong V2M is very nice, but I wouldn't get a 13 dollar puzzle and then slap a 25 dollar coating on it. I'd rather just buy two extra puzzles for that price.

With $50 AUD total ($35 USD) budget I want a 2x2 and 4x4 cube, both magnetic. What is the best combo?

Just for context on my magnet preference, my 3x3 is a Moyu GTS 2M. I think the magnets should be a bit stronger. I'd prefer something closer to the strength of gan air sm (somewhere in between).

As a sub 45 solver, I use a GAN356 Air (it's not magnetic because I couldn't be bothered to spend an extra $8, but I think a strong magnetic cube would be very good).

It's a good cube for Feet as it's very stable. I think I switched out the orange and green shades for fluros for better visibility. It's mostly just lubed with a lot of whatever heavy stuff I was using when I was actively practicing Feet (either Cubicle Weight 4 or Traxxas 50k).

Big Sail with very strong magnets and black instead of orange and hot pink instead of red. I’ve considered switching to a GTS3M probably with extra magnets, but haven’t spent that money yet.

So im interested in buying a new 3x3 because the screw and sprig on my xuxib kylin v2 flew and i wasnt able to find them.
My price cap is below $20.
I was looking at a few cubes like the Gan 356r,guogan yuexiao e and the supernova rs3m. Do you guys have any cubes you'd recomend for a 3x3 under $20.
