My brother's Pyraminx pops like crazy.

Can anyone tell me which Pyraminx is less prone to pop during speedsolving (if there is one)?

Thanks for any help

I have never had a pyraminx that lasted longer than five days of playing.

I do not reccomend Meffert's pyraminx for speedsolving, but they are very nice. I would suggest getting the Tomy one or the Pyramid Puzzler. I have the Pyramid Puzzler, and other than me being an idiot and popping off the tip, it has never broken.

I can't find a current auction with the same one, and the auction I bought it off of is expired, but I remember there was an ebay store called "Tropical Store" that I got a very nice white pyraminx from. In Pleasantville, it looked like most people had this one. I think it was from Indonesia, but I would look for tropical store and see if they have any left

Thanks guys; I guess I'll just have to be careful as I speedsolve with one.

I think I just bought the last one from them a few days ago. It's called Tropical eStore.

I know this is old but I still want to say that the shengshou pyraminx is now the best all around.
