This cube is great, the turning is smooth and you can get a whole plethora of feelings on this cube, scratchy to buttery to crispy. The only downside is that the center caps fall out very easily, I normally have one fall out every 10 or 20 solves. Overall this cube is great, though.

Issues with Center Caps and Logo Sticker
By Will Rogers on 26 November 2016

Great cube out of the box. I didn't need to tension or lubricate it. After about month of use logo Sticker began to peel off. The center caps also fall off all the time which has forced me to stop speeding solving with it. Great cube if they would fix the issue with the center caps.

This cube is garbage!
By Epic the Cuber on 18 November 2016

Honestly, the DaYan ZhanChi is very bad. If feels very dry and locks up on every algorithm!
Once lubed it is uncontrollable and unstable almost like a Gan 356s v1 due to no corner cutting at all! JK
It is certain that this cube is not meant for the real speed cubers out there. I am currently stuck with it as my main as i only have a rubik's cube and the stickerless DaYan ZhanChi.

Overall, i don't reccomend this cube for intermediates and experts.

It pops like crazy and has a dry scratchy feel, I tensioned it well and then it all fell apart... IT IS TRASH!

Not the Best
By Prateek Seth on 02 November 2016
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
I got this cube around a year ago with 5cc of weight 2 lube. When I got it it was in good condition and I lubed it with weight 2. It got faster after only a couple hundred solves and started decreasing my avg. However, lately is has not been doing good as my main. I prefer an aolong or Valk 3 because the zhanchi pops too often and it locks way to often.
I recentky orderered the Cubicle Valk 3 and it is a lot better than the zhanchi. However it is more pricey so I would recommend a Thunderclap which is cheaper and a lot better than a Zhanchi at least.
Overall, the Zhanchi was a nice cube when I got it. After time it wasnt as good and I got really pissed when it locked. My times just werent what they could be so I am now switching over to Cubicle Valk 3.
