For Square One I feel like on either Great or Expert you should put the Little Magic M Sq-1 it is such a good square one
Shouldnt anyone, who's Into Hardware, make an updated List?
We tried but they kept getting removed. There are some in the thread if you have a look
The list should remain up to date. Would someone active here and into hardware like to moderate this forum and keep the list updated? Shoot me a PM.

Best starter 3x3: YuXin Little Magic ($4 when The Cubicle is having a sale)
Best budget 3x3: Meilong M ($6) or RS3M 2020 ($9) (hopefully YuXin releases a factory Little Magic M)
Best flagship 3x3: this is preference, maybe GAN XS or WRM 2020. But there are a lot of options (GAN X, WRM, even Valk)

MGC 6x6 is the best on the market now

YuHu v2 megaminx is best budget megaminx

MGC Elite is something I desperately want, because it's apparently very good, very customisable and about £20 from kewbzuk

I don’t really know much past things like 3x3 but @Fukuoka Kengo James made a list here:
I think the YJ MGC 2 Elite should be added to 2x2 expert, and maybe Valk 2 M.
The Meilong M I think can compete with the RS3M 2020
Why Gan 356 M? Gan 356 XS/X V2
Everything else as far as I know is fine

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 is frosted plastic, it happens to me as well. Frosted plastic is just horrible and I don't understand why cube companies are trying to get us to drop our cubes and turn into Jayden McNeil.

what's a cheapish cube with strong magnets since the rs3m 2020's are just too weak for me at the moment
Speedcubing.org sends you the extra magnets for free if you purchase an rs3m 2020, if you didn't buy it from there you can buy an extra magnet kit from TheCubicle or SpeedCubeShop.

EDIT: Whoops, sorry for the double post. I thought I was in a different thread lol.

Thanks! Is neutrino just your angstrom/cosmic?

Only problem is that there isn't much stock, since lots of stuff is sold out
I guess, neutrino is our set-up service, we don't really focus much on it due to lack of demand but if you contact me then I can sort that out, it will be like £1 for 3x3 and £4 for 4x4+ on top of cube price probably.
We are hopefully restocking next week so should get lots of stuff back in stock, sadly we can't keep everything in stock all the time at the moment, we are trying to sort that out but we just need to get bigger.
