The center caps can sometimes fall out, which is an easy fix.

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.

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.

I have a Stickerless ZhanChi, and it's great. I have has no problems with it.
This product however, from the box was terrible. On all sides I could hear the annoying "ting, ting" sound of the springs rubbing against the core, it did not come pre-lubricated (not a problem at all, but it gave the cube a very sluggish feeling), and the tensions were unbelievably tight.

Now, this cube is AMAZING if you lubricate and tension it properly, but out of the box, I can't say that it was good.

The cube came with a weird credit card thing with the patent number on it, and LOTS of stickers, enough for me to re-sticker the cube twice (Two sheets of each color)!

Overall a good product, just not how it comes in the box. If you know how to tension and lubricate the cube, you should be fine.

i've only had this cube for 4 days but since then i've shaved 30 seconds off my average time. this is an amasing cube. i would ,however, not recommend this cube for beginners.

The Dayan Zhanchi is definitely not a cube for beginners, that being said, I think that if you feel like you have already formed a solid speed cubing foundation, good finger tricks, look ahead that kind of thing, and you feel like your cube is holding you back, definitely check out the zhanchi. It's a little pricey compared to the multitude of cubes available on amazon, but this cube will turn as fast as you can, and its mechanism virtually eliminates cube pops. If you're on the fence, or if you're just looking to try out some speed cube, the Dayan Zhanchi is always a great option.

Bought this cube and he Guhong on the same day, and they're both great cubes, but they weren't lying when they said this is the best cube in production today. It's fast and smooth and corner cuts incredibly well. Some reviewers say that this "isn't a beginners cube" but that's complete nonsense. if it's too fast adjust the tension to make it slower.

Also to the reviewer who said the Guhong was faster, I bought both because of your review and the ZhanChi is better all around, I have a feeling your old Guhong feels better because it's broken in a bit more.

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.
