    That is a very "universal" comment you got there.

    for me it's more like 1 pop in every 500+ solves...

    Maybe the cube must be lubed always for it to turn smooth without popping. My Zhanchi is not lubed and is very tight at normal tensions and pops everysolve if under loose tensions. No use of the torpedos in my case pops in both cases.

    I ordered my Zhanchi from Lubixcubes and I haven't touched the tension or lubed it up again (comes pretensioned and prelubed). I even took the torpedoes out and after weeks of use 1000+ solves it has yet to pop once.

    At factory tension, it never popped once. It does pop quite often if loosened a lot, as we all probably know.


    Something I have noticed: when I cleaned some of the gunk out of the edge pieces where the seams meet together and a little bit in other places, it instantly felt looser. :/

    I got a Zhanchi for ~6 months, and just last week it popped for the first time, but within' that week twice :0 What happens a little more often is a corner getting twisted.

    The poll results are surprising to me. I thought that everyone would have answered 1 in 20+
    If I pop more than 1 in 50 solves I change something.

    I have 2, both with torpedos. 1 pops about 1 in 100, the other maybe once or twice (call it 1 in 15k).
