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.
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!

1. What's the cheapest 6x6 and 7x7 and are they good?
2. What's the smallest 6x6 and 7x7 as per size?
1) If you absolutely MUST save money, get the YJ Yushi v2M and Yufu v2M cubes. Anything cheaper is not good. But, really, spend just a bit more and get the MGCs.

2) The smallest 7x7 is the Spark, which is an excellent cube. The smallest 6x6 is a Fangshi and is barely functional.

Which skewb to get -
Moyu Aoyan or Xman Wingy? Or something else in that range?

If I had the money, is the Gan M Enhanced skewb worth it?
It depends on how serious you are about skewb. I have all 3 so I think you should make a decision along these lines:

1. Do you have plenty of money to ball out? If so get the Gan. It is very effortless to turn, and feels nicer as a result(imo). It also feels slightly better performance wise due to being a more recent, modern skewb.
That said, the AoYan and Wingy are also still very good.

2. What kind of grip do you want? If you think the concave shape will help, get the wingy. If you prefer a cubic shape get the aoyan.

3. Do you like faster or more controllable cubes? The wingy and aoyan are pretty controllable but reasonably fast. The gan is noticeably faster to me.

In general, if you aren't super serious about skewb, get either the wingy or aoyan. I do think the gan is the best atm, but not by much so you won't miss out on too much if you don't get it. I've gotten a sub1 single stackmat on the wingy and very good times on the aoyan as well so you won't be held back by either one. I think I would prefer the aoyan due to the cubic shape personally.

Not cubes, but...
what's a good blindfold and earmuffs to get for BLD?

Just beginning BLD, so want a good blindfold and earmuffs. Don't want to just try random ones and then find out they're cheap and the straps don't last.

If you hate your money that much... get a Gan 12 Maglev M.
If you want the best cube that is also cheap, I would go with the Moyu RS3M 2020. And get some lubes to make it faster.

The fastest would be the one z3 cubing made. As far as mass produced, probably the gan 12 or wr m maglev
