What if someone already voted but prefers the new choice? It isn't super practical. Another alternative is to just make general judgements of what should be suggested. It doesn't need to be perfect - the goal is to provide a useful guide for people who aren't up to date on the latest hardware but want to buy a new puzzle.
i think there's a "change vote" option after you cast your vote

So keeping an update to date list of the most recommended cubes is certainly a useful resource. However, since many people have differing views on which is the best for each puzzle type and category, it makes it difficult to choose which one to actually put as the recommended puzzle.

Does anyone know of a site or resource that has a voting mechanism for the best speedcubes? I think adding a way for people to add puzzles and allow the community to vote up/down differing brands/puzzles would be the best long-term strategy for this. This way it's not just 1 person recommending stuff and it's the crowd, and the rankings can be done automatically as new puzzles are added and whatnot. Thoughts?

Good to hear! The aosu is still nice, can't imagine how great a new 4x4 will feel. I'm still not sure which one to get though, as I understand the wuque is a bit on the slow side but has better corner cutting, while its the other way around with the moyu. No clue about valk 4

You need to compress the fittings on it. Once you do though MY GOD IS IT GOOD. (Get the cubicle labs version, not angstrom(

I was thinking of getting the angstrom wuque, now I'm not so sure anymore :/
Sorry if I came across wrong. IT IS STILL A GREAT CUBE. I just think a spring compression is necessary for the wuque (like how you need to change the springs in a yuxin red 6x6), because the wuque is usually a slow cube.

Note: after the mod, the outer layers WILL BE very unstable and loose. You will need to put in some heavy lube (weight 3 or higher), but that will require additional break-in. If you do not want to deal with the extra hassle, get the angstrom. It is much better out-of-the-box then the cubicle labs version.

However, like anything with cubes these days, it is mostly personal prefence.

I heard about the unstable outer layers after the mod, it's partially why I'd like to get the angstrom since it has stronger magnets. I'm sure I could still compress the springs if I felt I need to, and the magnets would help keep it more stable. At least that's how I imagine it.

Lads Im really hoping you can give me a good recommendation. So basically I want a 3x3 thats fast , controllable ,smooth , very light magneted (like the mf3rs3m), great m slices. The weak magnets are a priority for me cause I recently bought an air sm and Im incredibly disspleased, the turning requires way too much effort for my turning style. My budget is up to 40 euros

Moyu WRM. It fits all your criteria. You can win one on the Discord server for this forum!

Here are polls you can vote for or against speed cubes.
He was talking about pjk's original post. Stop acting like you are the king of this thread.

Seriously, nobody is going look at some random post in the middle of the thread just because some random cuber thinks he is always right.
