According to the definition on great cubes and expert cubes by @pjk, it is weird to have a great cube being more expensive than a expert cube, isn't it? Although in reality, we often have cheaper cubes performing better than more expensive cubes. However, I don't think the cube being more expensive and worse should be mentioned on the list.
Just because it's pricey didn't mean it's good.

This is according to pjk's logic. When I mean great I meant the level right before best on the market, I should have clarified this earlier in my post but that's why I was putting the v1 in great. My apologies for making things unclear

According to my own logic, price is also a factor on making the list. Cubes from budget to expert should have an ascending order in price. People pay more for a better cube on the list, isn't it? My list below is trying to state the best cube(s) in different price ranges.

I get it, you have a list. Now let's stop arguing over matters of opinion.

There is not really a reason that there should be only a few cubes in one category, Im trying to make an accurate list, not a small one


No, and big no. The YLM became pretty much everyone's main as soon as it came out aside from some people who hated the feel. After modding the YLM is easily comparable to the Volt v2 and I would wholeheartedly say that the volt v2 is in fact not objectively better than the YLM. The performance is neck and neck after modding the YLM and it's not even that hard to do. Not to mention the YLM does not break at all. The volt v1 has obvious issues with edges breaking but a friend bent an edge on the v2 so the structural integrity is not guaranteed with the volt but it is with the YLM since I have not heard of any pieces breaking, even after modding. The only reason that I main the volt v2 is because it tolerates my turning better, but I might try the A mod and see how that works for me.

BTW here is a tutorial on how to mod a ylm square-1 with the B mod just to show how easy it is to do with basically any knife or similar blade.

I main a B mod YLM(It’s my only squan), I modded it with the edge of a flathead screwdriver and a nail file. Worked fine, you hold the screwdriver above the line you want to cut, press down really hard, and push through the plastic. Continue this until you have removed the dome. Then sand the area, as it will have flashing.

What do u think about the QiYi Valk 3 Power M?
Good cube, but The Valk 3 M is better in my opinion and in many other's opinions, and its only 25 dollars to boot.
