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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
