This is probably not needed, but this is the ones I'm using:

2x2: YuXin Little Magic

3x3: GAN XS with Strongest magnets, and 2nd click with the second loosest setting

4x4: Some cheap QiYi

5x5: Some other cheap QiYi

6x6: None

7x7: YJ YuFu 7x7

Pyraminx: X-Man Bell Pyraminx

Megaminx: X-Man Galaxy Megaminx V2 M (sculpted)

Square 1: YuXin little magic

@ProStar I've put the MoYu back into dollars, just used to dealing with pounds in the UK. Not including the Angstom clock as yes it's not mass produced and also from what I've yes it's definatley better than lingaos but it's in no way perfect.

My mains:

2x2: Old Plastic Dayan Zhanchi M,
3x3: Dayan Tengyun M
4x4: MoYu Meilong M
5x5: Valk 5 M

I do have other events, but I don't really practice them and henceforth don't exactly consider them to be mains.

Some cubes that aren't mains but I do enjoy and highly recommend are:

Gan249 v2 M
QiYi WuWei M
MoYu AoSu WR M
YongJun MGC 5 M

So i have the 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, and I was wondering what cube I should buy and learn next. So It would be great if you commented below on any suggestions.
btw 5x5 is the biggest cube im probably going to practice on, so im probably not going to put to much time and commitment into anything bigger then 5x5.

Mega and pyra. They are not too hard and put a spin on things. If you want a challenge, go for squan.

I think that the things @ProStar said are great, but I think this is about the time I started getting into non-WCA puzzles. As far as WCA goes, I think you should look into a cheap 5x5, like the Yuxin Little Magic or MGC. I thought I wouldn't like big cubes, and now I love them, 4x4 is my favorite event and 5x5 is my 3rd favorite (behind 3x3).

I originally hated anything that wasn't 3x3, 2x2, OH, pyra and skewb
I had a comp coming up called fortitude sydney and i was only gonna do 3x3
legit 2 weeks before the comp i learnt mega, 4x4 and clock
now some of my favourite events are 4x4, 5x5, and mega
I would recommend the Yuchuang v2m 5x5. O bought it about a week ago and it feels sbout as good as the mgc and valk 5 no joke

hey guys, what are the best 4x4s, im not talking budget but a professional one thats not extremly exspensive
What's your budget? Top of the line will cost you $50, but you can get them cheaper. Also, are you confident at setting up cubes? Because if you don't spend the extra on a Cubicle to SCS setup, then it can get $10 cheaper.
