Not many speedsolvers have a Shengshou as their main 3x3. They seem to be better for beginners. Quite a few people use YJ cubes as a main (I've ordered a YuLong cos it sounds decent).

hmmm... any suggestions then, i currently have an aulong v2, and to be honest i wasn't to pleased, i found it to be sluggish, and didn't like the clicky/bumpy feeling, i was looking for more of a smooth and fast feeling, that doesn't require much to move a layer.

The aulong is usable, but personally not for me.

I have used both, I'm rather new to speed solving though and My sulong is my main. I have it tight and it still feels too fast for me. I got a friend an aurora and it is nice but even on looser tensions it felt sluggish compared to my sulong and zhanchi. I like the sulong a lot more than the aurora, though they are both good.

Out of the two I prefer the Aurora due to my SuLong being sluggish. You could always spend some extra money on the YuLong but you would be sacrificing the smooth feeling.

I much prefer the aurora also. It's very smooth. While not super fast I think it's faster than my yj's. It's been my favorite cube for a long time. I have two of them and they feel slightly different due to the way I have them lubed and tensioned so you can cater it to your liking

Honestly they are both great cubes, just keep your order and see what you think. If down the line you want to get the aurora, they are pretty inexpensive. I don't think you will be disappointed with your order, but just don't expect it to feel similar to the aurora. They are completely different feeling cubes, but it doesn't mean that you won't like them both. Since you have already tried the aurora, give the sulong a try. IMO

I love my YuLong, I highly recommend it. It's my main. If you want something even faster and possibly uncontrollable, maybe try a WeiLong V2. But the YuLong is plenty fast.
