The first word that comes to my mind when I hear the words Dayan ZhanChi is WOW! Though you may get discouraged when you hear that this cube has stickers, but once you start turning it you totally forget that thought. If you love solving rubiks cubes and you know you can achieve very low times, I would definitely suggest purchasing this. If you want to know how much it decreases your time I will say that I used to average in the fifties but now I average in the thirties. And my fastest time used to be 52, now it is 18. Its durability is great other than when you speed solve and you drop it, occasionally the center pieces pop out. But they are very easy to put back in and this scarcely happens. Finally, If you were to ask me to say pros and cons about this item all I would say is the only one I will mention is the pros, because there is practically nothing about this toy that is bad. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone who runs along wanting to purchase a speed cube. AWESOME CUBE!

When I first got the cube, the box was dented and the cube had oil over it. Furthermore, the cube turned horribly and got stuck often. But, I wiped off the oil and retensioned the cube, and suddenly it worked like magic. Out of the box might not be so good, but proper changes make it the best cube I've had so far.

when i first received this package, i was ecstatic... i opened it up and started playing with it immediately which may have been a mistake because the cube was cold from being in the mailbox for so long... the stickers began to peel right away, but i restickered it with the stickers that come with the cube (which are very high quality by the way),and tensioned it to my liking.It moves excellent, granted not as fast as my sticker-less Dayan zanchi, but it definitely corner cuts much better than the sticker-less one.

MOVEMENT/ALGORITHMS:
the movement of this cube is excellent out of the box, and is even better if tensioned to your liking. (this cube does not need lubrication). pretty much every algorithm flows with this cube, but the R perm has popped this cube a few times. to avoid popping, i recommend gluing the pieces that come apart together. what i mean by this is to take out an edge piece, and pull it apart so that you have 2 pieces with one sticker on it, and a torpedo... add glue to the small holes where the pins get stuck in, and push the piece together with the torpedo in... that is the only source of popping on this cube...the pieces splitting in half.

CORNER CUTTING:
the corner cutting on this cube is excellent... even on a very tight tension, the zanchi can still corner cut 45 degrees, and revers corner cut at least 30 degrees.i have not experienced any pops due to corner cutting on this cube... as i have explained earlier, the only source of popping on this cube is the edge pieces splitting in half due to friction.

CONS:
the only cons of this cube is low quality stickers out of the box and edge pieces splitting and popping... center caps on this cube are very sturdy, and i have not had one of those fall off without me pulling it off.

So I've owned just about every cube out there. I started with the rubiks brand, then the cube for you, then F1, then F2, then ghosthand, then ghosthand 2, then guhong, then lingyun, then lunhui. Now finally the Zhanchi. It really is the fastest and smoothest cube I've ever owned. I average around 20 seconds and I can see how a novice may not like this cube. It's very loose, but if you have good control it's the best of the best. It feels effortless and no lockups. By the way, it's nearly impossible to pop. You can probably buy it cheaper from China, but it takes at least 3 weeks. I got this cube from Amazon in 2 days, tensioned properly and lubed already.

Submitting a review because I've seen a wide variety of opinions on this product.
MY purchase is *specifically* a DaYan 5 ZhanChi cube. (5th Generation ZhanChi) This cube LOOKS identical to a "Lone Goose" (GuHong/speed) cube, but the description states "ZhanChi combines the speed of GuHong and the non-popping design of LunHui". (4th generation/supposed to not pop)"
Right out of the box it had an amazing feel. It's a very nice product. Occasionally I've felt if I FORCED a bad move while making two simultaneous turns I might pop a cube out because it is naturally SO loose, but since I've not forced it, it has never happened.
I originally thought I would be better off with a "painted side" cube instead of one with stickers. On my last cube the ink actually wore off of the stickers. On this one the stickers are fine with no bubbles or peeling and I've been using it regularly for 3 weeks.
There is nearly NO comparison to an "original" Rubik's cube. The feel of this one is SO MUCH better.
Some advice--I researched before making this purchase, and most owner's agree you should not attempt to take apart or modify the cube. I agree and suspect taking it apart will likely degrade the quality of the item, actually making it harder to turn AND more likely to break apart. Out of the box, and for nearly a month now, I can 360-spin any slice or face of the cube with just one fingertip. If yours is not the same out of the box, Do Not try and lubricate the cube! just return it! This version is intended to be friendly without any type of user maintenance, and again both vendors and users agree it should NOT need to maintenance.
I am very happy with my purchase, I hope you will be, too.
