    I'd say get just a DaYan Zhanchi, that way you can break it in easier if you want, mod it easier if you want (I'd assume trying to dremel a lubed cube makes things harder with it slipping out of your hands, etc.), then lube it with whatever you want (why get a Lubix one if you prefer silicone?).

    Lol really? Mine was extremely loose (I tried pulling on the sides to see what the tension was like and pulled out 3 pieces together on one side lol). It was also gummy at first (it was over lubed, but that is typicaly, and actually good imo). It just needed some breaking in and was excellent. However, I am not entirely sure it was worth the price.

    IMO you are almost guaranteed a good quality cube and job done, however the cost isn't worth it (like I said, imo). You can get a cheaper cube and lube it yourself, just takes a bit more time (you can also mod if you wish). Basically it comes down to how valuable your time is / how concerned you are with the cost...

    Dayan Zhanchi. If you're new, go with the toolbox cube. Do the mods yourself, it's good practice.

    Wow - lots of divergent opinions on this one.

    I have both - the Lubix and non-Lubix Zhanchi. The Lubix was "pre-tensioned" and, of course lubricated. It really is much better than my original Zhanchi, which is still quite excellent, but now feeling its age - gummy and sluggish. I was VERY impressed with the Lubix Zhanchi after being more than satisfied with my first Zhanchi. I only bought the second to have a "spare" in case something happened -- but it's now become my main cube.

    I suspect any Zhanchi that is properly cleaned, tensioned and lubricated will be excellent. However, it takes some know-how to properly tension and lubricate the cube - thus the advantage (and extra cost) of the Lubix version.

    I agree with Datak, in my opinion you should buy a dayan guhong v2, and get lubix to lube it. in my opinion (i have a zhanchi and a guhong v2) the guhong v2s are a lot better. but get a white cube, i had a black one and i have a white one and yea, the white one is better. if you buy a reg. dayan guhong v2, and buy like 2cc of lubix, then its like the same price than on lubix, but on lubix they don't give you extra lube so its better to get a v2 in my opinion and not from lubix but use lubix or silicube and it will rock. but if you really want a zhanchi then dont get it from lubix. oh and yea you need to see if there is a post already like yours be4 you post. hope i helped.
