Qiyi MS 4x4 vs Moyu Meilong M 4x4 vs YJ MGC 4x4 vs Yuxin Little Magic 4x4 M. I'm ignoring price, I just want something with good magnets.
Easily the MGC, no doubt. I broke mine, however (like the edge plastic broke because it got trampled) so I main a ZhiSu Mini which is also good but not as good as the MGC.

I am looking for a 3x3 that definitely be considered a back-up main. I have tried a Gan 12 Maglev, Gan 11 M pro (Which feel like a 356 M to me, a cube I don't like very much), WRM 2021, an original WRM, Rs3m (too many of them), a tornado v2 m, and of course, my favorite, the GTS3M, which is my main. I use it for standard solving, and 3-bld.
However, I have given a lot of my 3x3 mains away/sold them. So I am looking to purchase a new 3x3 main under 20 dollars. I saw a WRM 2021 at 18.39 at the cubicle (no surprise there, as the cube has been on discount for a few days, not following the sales/clearance rules) so I am tempted to get it. But I want to know what you guys say first.

I would spend a little more and get a valk 3. It's pretty similar to the gts 3 m, and I switch between them frequently.

Why a valk? Isn't that cube... really old? A lot older than the GTS3M considering that it comes non-magnetic and magnetic.
Besides, it is 6 dollars more than the WRM. That is big difference in price.

I couldn't help myself. Also sorry if someone out there doesn't have a parent.

wrm 2021 is really good. i could just go for that one. i also like the Mg c evo, but the logo drives me insane. it also has very mixed reviews.
main recommendation is the gan air m. its an xs without the adjustable magnets and its one of my favorite cubes. almost everyone likes it

Because it feels similar to the GTS 3 M, and it's still a really nice cube. I have all the WR Ms and many more "new improved" cubes, but the valk is still my main.

I want to get some lubes, and a new blindfold alongside the new back-up main. I also want to get some replacement parts when I place my order. I have 48 dollars that I am hoping to get them all. That is why I am asking for a good back-up main under 20. I saw the WRM at 18.39, so that is why I asked.

My main is the MGC Elite. Fast, yet controllable and stable. The center-edge magnets are genius. My lube setup is a lot of Weight 5, but I heard that Cosmic (SCS) and Angstrom, Mystic, and Max (TC) work well. Hope this helps.
All right, I'll go for the MGC. I've seen some reviews saying that MGC doesn't need setups to be good, but Valk 2M requires some lube to make it smooth for a longer period of time. Thanks!
