So I have a very bad 4x4 cube right now and I'm planning on getting a new one obviously and would like some reference and advice on some I should consider looking at. I would say my budget is around $20 or under.
Here’s another vote for the MGC. Other budget 4x4s just can’t compete. I never lubed or modified mine from the OTB settings.

Have you tried guhong v4 ? Also how does it compare to valk elite , wrm 2020, gan 11
Hope u reply
I have tried the Guhong v4. it is by far the best cube under $20. Many people in fact prefer it over flagships like the gan 11. For example BrodytheCuber recently switched from the Gan 11 to the Guhong v4. It is a very smooth and buttery cube with very lightweight turning, 100% recommend.

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.
Thanks for the recommendation. Yulong V2M and MS are indeed good budget cubes.

out of those I like gts3m, but I recommend the WRM 2020 over all 3 of them
Thanks for the recommendation.

I think this is a case of cuber, not the cube. The RS3M 2020 (I'm assuming that's the one you're talking about because dual adjustment) is in contention for the greatest cube on the market right now, and if you are having all of these problems with a cube that has potentially the best performance out there then your turning desperately needs improvement.
Thanks for the recommendation.

I would suggest the RS3M 2020, the Qiyi clock, and the Gan pyraminx somwhere to be put somwhere in there.
Thanks for the recommendation.

The lingao clock should be completely out of the picture. There's no reason to buy it, it's the same price as the shengshou. The shengshou should be in both budget and great, or the qiyi clock could also be in both great and expert.

I wouldn’t call the Shengshou clock great...

pros and cons of the tengyun v1, weilong wrm and the gan air sm ?
I think most people pretty much love or hate the Tengyun v1. It’s really fast, smooth, and quiet. The WRM is a good cube, but the WRM 2020 is better. The Air SM is pretty old, but still a relatively good cube, but if you don’t have a Gan cube already, I would recommend buying a newer Gan cube, if that’s really what you want.
I believe only Jeff Bezos can afford 50 WRMs for MBLD lol
Elon Musk is actually the richest person on Earth now.

the weilong wrm (non 2020 version), which is what i have, is pretty much like the gts3m, pretty fast, but with very weak magnets and no ridges. I found it to be a little too uncontrollable since the magnets had little to no effect on the cube. Although i have heard good things about the 2020 version.
