well, a country.
I'm not buying the megaminx or square-1 because I want to focus on 3x3. Anyway
I am considering buying GTS 3. it is worth it to buy the non magnetic version because I can't spend 39 dollars worth of money for a cube that is just a magnetic version of the cheaper GTS 3. so my question is, does it impact performance on the GTS 3 buying the non-magnetic version?

Definitely. I’ve heard the GTS3 to be very fast, and uncontrollable without magnets. Half a year back, I was debating whether to go for a GTS2M or a GTS3, and almost everyone said GTS2M

The cubicle pro shop little magic M is $19.99. I bought this when I had the same $20 budget. This is a great option to get a cube professionally setup, lubed, and its magnetic all within your budget. A good YLM is on par with other flagships in my opinion.

After exploring a bunch of other flagships (GanXS, tengyun, mgc3elite) I still main the YLM.

Life’s too short for non magnetic cubes. But seriously, as someone who cubed without magnets for years I’ll never go back to non-magnetic versions. Magnets FTW

I think I could magnetized the GTS 3 and making it a GTS 3 M for way less price, but even after the magnetizations, it is the same?

You could just spend a few dollars on magnets and superglue, magnetise it, and it’ll be more stable (lots of people say it really needs magnets)
hmmmmmmmmmmmmm I think about this, but this cube is my main and if i make a mistake when i magnetise it(i have never magnetise a cube)

It’s not too hard, just do some research on how to do it, and don’t make a stupid mistake. And if you mess up something, it’s likely fixable (superglue on outside? Believe me, saliva and some other things can dissolve it. Wrong polarity? Dig it out with a screw driver.

The Qiyi MS, from what I've heard is really good, Phill Yu and some others have started using it as their mains
In my country they are not available

Hmmmm is the YJ YuLong a good cube?
