RS3M2020 for sure.
have already used it, just not for me.


The WuWei is a highly underrated puzzle IMO and the Meilong M is also a fantastic puzzle. BUT, the valk M is definitely the way to go though for both OH and 2H.
i didn't know that the valk was good for oh. Does celeritas work well for oh?

Also, if i have enough money left, i'll buy some budget cubes

The valk basically changed the entire OH scene back when it was released. People still were debating whether the Air GTS or Valk were better for 2h but for OH the valk was declared the greatest, and I think that it also might still be the most used cube for OH but I'm not sure about that. Regarding your lube question, that's 100% up to your preferred feel. Lube your cube the way you like it, there isn't really a "best" lube, just lube it to your taste.

The wuwei is a fantastic cube in its own right, but for OH I'm not the biggest fan of it. The magnets are a little overwhelming for doing OH solves and there are a few weird lockups you can get doing some algs on OH that make it a little frustrating, but as long as you don't mind the strong magnets and you're really accurate for OH the cube offers some pretty decent stability and great speed.
