I'm considering the shadow m or aoshi m, or is it worth waiting for the fabled hays 6 whenever that may be as I know 6x6 hardware is still pretty poor. (I only have a modified vcube 6 from wayyyy back, but have restarted cubing after many years and have focused on 3-5 so far)
Absolutely not. Don't wait. The Hays 6 is a long way off.

Of the two, the Aoshi is much better over the Shadow.

Have anyone tried the cyclone boys magnetic skewb?
It's so great that I think it is underrated.
It's my main, and it's Tckewbs' main over the wingy.
I'd recommend it to any beginners, intermediate solvers, and also experts on skewb.

budget: QIYI QiCheng dkewb
great: Cyclone Boys magnetic skewb
expert: X-Man Wingy skewb, Moyu Aoyan skewb

Would it be worth making a separate category for puzzles that are illegal for blind events (printed logo) ootb? I would like to pick up a few Warrior Ws for MBLD, but they have logos. I’m not 100% sure which other stickerless cubes have printed logos.

Don’t know if this will help, but I hope it does. (Also, I just got the Warrior W, it’s pretty nice.)

This method doesn't work; it still leaves scratches.

I've done this with my stickerless thunderclap v2 and now it's illegal for BLD because the center got all scratched up. I threw a logo on the center so now I can use it for sighted solving in the event that all of my other cubes get stolen.

Are there any differences between the Gan 356 x and the Gan 354 INFINITY other than size and magnets, I'm looking to get one of these and I like the smaller size of the 354 but I've heard the Gan 356 x might perform better

Hey, I just found this other method while searching around! It seems like you'd have to buy something, but it seems very quick and effective as opposed to the slow process in Z3Cubing's video. Check it out!

is it better than the yuxin cloud m?
Judging from reviews (I don't have a Cloud/Cloud M), probably, but cube reviews also tend to be heavily biased towards recent puzzles, so take this with a grain of salt.

(I don't practise 555 a lot so I can't really tell how different cubes compare, beyond "this cube is good enough for me" versus "this cube is absolute trash". The YLM falls into the former category for me, together with my Wushuang M.)

Okay, for 3x3, I've had the Gan 356 Air S for my main, and I love the light smoothness. I'd like to try the Air SM, but also the GTS2M. Which one should I buy?

It's good advice though. I tried a bunch of cubes at my first comp and it was pretty neat. It's not particularly nice to reply to something like that with such sarcasm.
Well the closet comp in the next few months is approximately 200 miles from where I live, so... yeah... I'm gonna drive that far to try out a gts2m... I was kinda lookin' for a more immediate solution to my dilemma... Anyway I decided just to magnetized my current Air to save some cash and try out a few Cubicle Premium Cubes. I meant nothing to be 'mean' my comment, sorry...
