3x3 speed cubes for beginnersMany speedcubers disagree on whether there really is such a thing as entry-level speed cubes. Why? Because the selection and assessment of a speed cube depends heavily on the personal preference of the cuber. That is also why we agree that there is no such thing as THE 3x3 cube for a beginner. However, for beginners, the price of a cube could play a big part in the decision.
