Should I get the TengYun 2x2, valk 2m, or Gan 251. I could also get a yupo v2m as I do really like this cube and wait till my first comp in epping, and try out several cubes there. What do you guys think?

Also, has there much of a difference between the valk 2m and the valk 2lm?

I"ve added a section at the bottom of the post with links to various shops around the world. What am I missing? What are the biggest shops in Europe? Let me know and I'll add them to the thread.

Also, you have any other suggestions to make, please post them here.
Maybe add DailyPuzzles, Australia’s newest big store, which seems pretty good. I am totally biased towards speedcube.com.au though...

Yes, add daily puzzles they are great

They aren't bad, but I think I've noticed some of their prices are higher than Speedcube.com.au, and they have less puzzles. But then again... Code TINGMAN

Personally, I have always bought my puzzles at speedcube.com.au. Free express shipping over $100 and a rewards system. Always great service. I have contemplated buying speedcubes at dailypuzzles but in the past they haven’t had the newest hardware, and have been more expensive. I have recently looked at their site, and it seems they have lots more cubes to offer and looks more professional then before, but I still don’t believe their overall store is better than speedcube.com au. However, it is worth adding because I know plenty of people who shop there :).

EDIT: I’ve been trying some of my friends 2x2’s and thought the GAN 251, Dayan Tengyun and WR Weipo were as good as the Valk 2 and I think they’re worth adding, anyone else agree?

When it comes to the 4x4x4 cube, which one is better?


YuXin Little Magic Magnetic 4x4x4
or
YongJun YuSu V2 Magnetic 4x4x4
or
SENGSO Mr. M Magnetic 4x4x4


I only have one 4x4 cube, it's not magnetic, and it locks up a lot, it's horrible, so I'd like to buy a good one, and it's cheap. On one site, I researched these, and found these 3 cubes around $11. So... because they are magnetic, I found a good price, i think...

I think YuSu v2M is amazing if you take the time to set it up properly
YLM is too slow for me
I don’t have a Mr. M, but my friend did(he quit cubing), and it locked up a little too much. I might be biased because it doesn’t come in stickerless and I can’t recognize stickered puzzles

Dayan Tengyun or the new Qiyi Wu Wei?
My friend has the Tengyun and I personally love its lovely gliding feeling, frictionless and smooth. It has a clack. blocky kind of snappy feeling which I really enjoy. My only gripe is it is a little too fast for me, but that could be fixed with some setup. Its 55 mm size and weak magnets make it great for OH

I have a GTS V2 M and ever since was intrigued by smaller cubes. So I ordered a GAN 354M recently to satisfy my curiosity... It's not a recent model, and probably not as smooth as the highly praised 356X, but it intrigues me... and I am doing this for fun after all!

I believe the list needs to be updated because it’s been three months and a lot of new releases have come out. I’ll help out by adding cubes for events I have experience with and a variety of cubes for:

2x2:
Budget: YJ Yupo v2 M
Great: YJ MGC
Expert: Dayan Tengyun (now my main), Valk 2, Moyu Weipo WR M

3x3:
Budget: Yuxin Little Magic
Great: Valk 3
Expert: GAN XS (my main), GTS3M
