What is the most fun wca puzzle to solve and play with? Currently I've only learned the 3×3 and eventually I wanna buy another puzzle so that it doesn't get repetitive and so that I can have fun!

Honestly as for rn I have 3 puzzles in mind that look like fun: pyraminx, 4×4, and the skewb.

It all depends on what kind of solving experience you're looking for. If you want it more challenging, then 4x4. If you want something easier, then choose pyraminx or skewb.

It is up to personal preference. Personally, my favourite events are Pyraminx, 3x3, 2x2, 4x4 and Megaminx.

I find skewb to be very unintriguing and kinda lame. Pyraminx is fun if you want to challenge yourself by learning a puzzle intuitively, making your own algorithms, etc. because it's a relatively simple puzzle. You will get fast quickly and th that's just kinda all there is to it, there are advanced methods and all sets but nothing like what's available to explore with 4x4. The 4x4 will require the most time to master of the choices and is arguably the more difficult, expansive, and fun of the options.

I think I'd suggest 4x4 or Megaminx. 4x4 is more challenging than 3x3 and requires you to learn some new techniques. Megaminx is very similar to 3x3, but not as hard to learn as 4x4. Pyraminx and Skewb are both easy and fast to solve. Pyraminx is more fun in my opinion, but I find the Skewb awkward to hold and turn.

I wouldn't suggest a new puzzle, instead try 3BLD!

Thx guys for your answers, I'l take it all into consideration! I have big hands too, so I'm between 4×4 and the pyraminx. Atm, (in 3×3) I'm sub 30 and get low 20's inconsistently, so I'll try to average like sub-15 and then I'll start learning another puzzle

I went this route: 3x3 -> 5x5 -> Megaminx.

I skipped 4x4 (will get around to it at some point--the 4x4 I bought hasn't arrived in the mail just yet) and went straight to 5x5 because it shares one key quality with all odd-dimensioned puzzles: fixed centers.

The next three on my list are: 2x2 -> 4x4 -> Pyraminx.

I'd really like to get into the FTO, but I hate all the existing hardware (and I don't do modding).

What is your favorite Megaminx, and why is it your favorite?

I'm just getting into Megaminx and am curious what's out there that people are impressed with. In general I tend to like stability over speed, stickerless over stickered, and smooth turning puzzles.

My favorite is the galaxy v2 m, because it’s the only one I have

The megaminx that almost all top pros use is the YuHu V2 M, which is all around a great mega. It's fast and stable, but it is kinda big. If you have small hands, a great option is the Galaxy V2 M (make sure to get the sculpted version). It's slower than the yuhu v2 but considerably smaller.

I like the Galaxy V2 M because my small hands and short fingers require small cubes and the Yuhu is massive.

How strong are the WR M 2020's magnets and would you recommend 2020 or the original.
if you use cfop i would say the new one is better but for roux the new one is not that good because it has strong magnets.
