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.

I find my cube (RS3M 2020) to be slipping out of my hands too often. Does this mean i shouldn't use frosted plastic, the cube is too big for me, or too small?
It’s probably the frosted plastic. It’s slipperier than normal plastic, but don’t worry. Solving a lot will make it grippier. Make sure your hands aren’t sweaty or anything

Thanks. Is frosted plastic (that's been worn by solves) basically the lite edition of pvc coating? Since Jperm says that pvc is better for competition grip
