I tried to make this list as objective as possible, if anyone has suggestions let me know.
Really late, but whatever. The only thing I would change is adding the Valk 4.

Well, from what I have tried, seen, and heard, it's just worse than the GTS2 and WRm. I wouldn't recommend something that I didn't like, so I didn't. I have only felt 1 really good valk 4 and even then it's only as good as a barely set up GTS2. Overall the performance on the WRm, GTS2, and probably MGC is just better, so I don't think it's worth getting over the other puzzles.

I think the Valk 2 is heavier, slower, and more stable.
The Tengyun is lighter, faster, quieter, and less stable.
I advise watching some reviews
I did and I found that that a lot of the pros use and recommend the valk 2 while a handful of youtubers use the tengyun. That's why im torn between the two.
