Just curious - I know 2x2 hardware only matters at top levels and is largely preference based.

Here's what I gathered from a brief search. Plus the videos are lots of fun to watch :)
Interestingly no one uses Dayan any more, and some cubers used non-magnetic cubes :O (or just forgot to mention it - I think Valk only has magnetic) but valk2 seems to be dominant.

The Cubicle's MGC review from August 2018
has the graph that inspired me to make this post in the first place

I only did the top 10 but notice the valk didn't come out yet, while it is now 5/10 of the top solvers' mains. Also now only 2/10 competitors main the weipo and no one in top 10 uses the wuxia.
