The other day I was sorting through my collection. I realized I had no stickered WCA puzzles. I want to get a stickered 3x3 so I can experience it. What is the best budget stickered 3x3 with good stickers that don't peel off. Magnetic would be best but its ok if not.

ok thanks
I am a sticker purist/fanatic/snob/fanatic/enthusiast...I’ve only had my GuHong v4 about a month but I can tell the stickers are not trash and will last. This cube has the great Dayan orange but also a deeper red and blue than my Dayan 2x2 and TengYun v1. I’d recommend it for your first stidkered 3x3! It’s in the higher end of “budget” 3x3s but that is definitely reflected in the performance. It’s an amazing puzzle and one I’m happy to solve on daily!

There's the Qiyi MS, Moyu RS3M 2020, Yuxin Little magic M, YJ Yulong v2 M, and Moyu Meilong M. The two best are the most expensive, being the RS3M, and MS. The Yulong is also good, but the MS is better IMO. If I were you I would just get the RS3M, and If you really want to save a dollar go with the Qiyi MS. The meilong M and Little Magic M are not as good as their premium, non-factory magnetic counter parts, so I would stay away. There's also the thunderclap V3 M, which is basically the same as the MS but more expensive.

Dayan Guhong V4M better than all of those

For the under $10 range I’d recommend the MS or yulong V2M. The MS is very blocky and feels like a less polished/nice valk 3M. The yulong conversely is smoother but has rather light magnets...but that does suit the cube well. The thunderclap is also a decent cube but not my favorite.

All of these are good cubes but aren’t going to blow you away if you’ve solved on flagships or other quality cubes you already enjoy the feel of. The GuHong on the other hand I feel offers a unique turning experience that can be compared to cubes OUTSIDE the budget range.
