CENTER CAPS!!!!
By Michael Draughon on 05 April 2015
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
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.

Quality cube
By Dante Delgadillo on 07 February 2017
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
I got my Dayan Zhanchi about 2 years ago, one of the best cubes i have had and used, it is really stable, fast, and has good corner cutting all the way to 45 degrees, although i did mess up my cube completely by putting WD-40 in it (was beginner cuber back then), it is now permanently below its full potential, 3 months ago I finally fixed my cube and was able to remove all WD-40 out of it, and its back to a good fast state, although the pieces are much drier so it doesn't perform that well anymore, i recommend this cube to every single beginner to advanced cubers, good in all the aspects, the sticker quality is really good, the torpedoes that it comes with deny popping a lot (unless cube is loose enough to pop), it is fantastic, haven't had pops in a long time, it happens rarely, I have seen others complain about the caps being too lose, what i do is put a little bit of a glue layer around the cap where it seals with the middle piece, that way it wont fall at all and stays together really strong, no downfalls in the cube, but please, don't put WD-40 in it and actually buy lubes that are meant for speed cubes. :D

Well...

Product: DaYan ZhanChi
I would like to start of this review saying that I do not actually own this cube. One of my friends has it, but I use it a lot (he lets me.) It feels pretty good whatever setup he has, its pretty smooth with a very small click. He might have it pretty loose, but if you actually try to increase push your TPS, it'll pop. When I say pop I mean all the pieces fly out over the room and the torpedoes get lost really easily. Corner cutting is also another place that it doesn't shine at. Corner cutting is about 1 piece, maybe 1.5. Overall I might recommend this cube, I might not, I don't really know because I have absolutely no idea what the setup is on that cube that I used, but just beware that if you set it up like that, however it actually was set up, you may get these issues.

Great out of the box!
By Eofor on 26 January 2017

I have been using this cube the way it came out of the box for 2 years and it was great. Just recently I lubricated it and tensioned to my liking and now it is even better than before. This cube has given me no trouble at all.
Center Caps
By Jordan Smidebush on 23 January 2017

I agree with someone else that its a great cube it is currently my main, but the center caps fall out so much, and my corner peices start to come apart for the stickerless ones

Bit of work, but amazing
By Cole Dearlove on 05 January 2017
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
This cube is a very solid cube.

When I first got it, it was almost perfect. It felt smooth and turned easily. The only problem was that it popped pretty often.

After tensioning it, it popped significantly less but after doing many solves it started to become dry.

I then lubed it with Lubicle silicon lube, and it became very buttery. After working in the lube, it became perfectly balanced to me.

Corner cutting is almost 45º and reverse cutting is 3/4 of a cubie.

Overall a very solid cube and my new main (which wasn't hard because my previous cube was an old Rubik's brand).

Great for Beginners
By Rachel on 26 December 2016
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
I would recommend this cube to beginners, but not someone looking to upgrade.

The ZhanChi was my first cube. It gets the job done, but it's nothing special. It's a great cube for beginners, because it's fast and light. I don't like the plastic the cube is made of. It feels too cheap and light to me. I also made the mistake of getting the purple version of this cube, which I don't recommend doing. I've never had any problems with the cube popping, and it will only lock up if I try to corner cut over 45. The cube is reliable and controllable. I messed with the tensions to make it tighter, but I didn't need to lube it.
