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.

Amazing Cube
By Esteban Puyana on 24 May 2017
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
When I first started cubing in 2014 this became my first main because it was the most popular cube at the time. Out of the box this cube is nice, it feels a bit dry and could use some lube. The spring tensions were very good out of the box and I had no need to change the set up. For anyone, who is beginning in cubing, this is an excellent start point, really recommend it!

Too Much Popping
By Redhawk on 11 April 2017
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
I've had this cube for about a 2 years it was my first speed cube I loved it when it came out the box so i didn't change anything. But once I broke it in it started to explode every 2 solves and it became very annoying so i got a different cube and it felt just as fast and smooth as the zhanchi without popping. So if your looking to get this cube DON'T. There are plenty of new cubes that are 10 times better than this.

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

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 with 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 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. Sorry for the spelling and grammar mistakes there, I fixed them. I was rushed when I was writing this review. I would also like to add that I did a little set up for him and it immediately got a little better (but just a little.) It got a little smoother, didn't pop as much, and corner cut a tiny bit better. I think this cube has had a long time to be one of the best cubes on the market, but isn't any more.

Great out of the box!
By Eofor on 26 January 2017
Product: DaYan ZhanChi
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.
