is the qiyi ms 3x3 any good?
Any budget 3x3 is good with magnets and the MS has them preinstalled

I am looking for a smooth buttery 3x3. It is not necessary for competition. It may just be a warm up cube and just great to turn. A low price will also be appreciated. Any opinions?

Wrm is the smoothest flagship I think

Not exactly cheap but I’ve heard the Dayan Tengyun v1 is super smooth.

I think the Tengyun V2 M is not super expensive and I have heard that it is very quiet and smooth.

Is the Dayan Tengyun V1 better or the Tengyun V2m? Because I heard that the V2m has a more snappy feeling/more sandy feeling, and so maybe not smooth as V1?

I think the Dayan Tengyun M is the way to go. Quietest cube on the market by a long way, and very smooth. I have the Tengyun V2, it’s more viable for speedsolving (the V1 is more unstable and has much weaker magnets), but if you just want that really smooth feeling, V1.

Although it's a little old, I can't think of a more buttery cube than the Thunderclap v1. It came out in 2015 and was an instant hit. While it is magnetless, it also consistently costs "less" than $9 in most store (where less means by$0.01 or \$0.05).
I do have the WRM which is a really great cube thats super smooth, but I wouldn't exactly consider it buttery. In addition, it costs 4x more than the thunderclap.
It's a little loud and even though corner cutting's pretty good, it's a bit snappy. It also doesn't have the best anti-corner twisting mechanisms in place, so you'll get those if you're not too careful.

I can't speak for the other cubes that people have suggested, but I can reasonably confidently say that this cube has one of the best feelings out there (though it might not develop until you've broken it down and added a bit of heavy silicon lube).

If you're looking for something in the budget line then I guess, you can go for Yuxin cubes! Appreciable options range from the Little Magic to Kylin Black. Also YJ cubes can satisfy your need if you want something in the cheap magnetic line. I guess Yulong V2M might be a great suggestion. And of course, if your requirements are not the budget type, then you must go for the GuHong V2M or DaYan TengYun V2M or even the GAN 356 XS and the Valk 3 Elite. By the way, all cubes can be made "buttery smooth " by using lubes such as the GAN standard lube or maybe the Lubicle. Also try out SpeedCubeShop's seasonal lubes if you really want your cube to perform the best!

I guess the V1 M is quite better cause its sound is a little less weird than the V2 M. My brother has one and he is quite happy with it!

I agree the V1 is eons better than the V2. Would definitely recommend if it's just a warm up cube. What's your main?

Looking at the TengYun v2 and the GTS3M as my first good speedcube, what are peoples opinons on the two?

Get the Tengyun. Some people are put off by the magnet strength and ridges of the GTS3M. Personally, neither one bothered me. You are far more likely to enjoy the Tengyun than the GTS3M since it doesn't have ridges and is (more) adjustable to fit what you like.

What do you want from the cube? Do you want it to be really fast, really stable, have good corner cutting etc. I have a Valk Elite and it's pretty stable with the strong springs and magnets, but if you want something more flexible and fast get the Tengyun.

I'm not sure as I don't really have a frame of reference for what I'd prefer, although I guess that would be a point for the Tengyun given that it does have a wider range of options.

I don't think those elements of the GTS3M would bother me, but yeah, it does seem like the Tengyun is the "safer" choice. Disregarding customizability which one do you personally prefer?

GTS3M. Although I really like the Tengyun V2 M, my friend has a gts3m and its very good. And, GTS3m Customizability is better than tengyun
