Wait why did you post this in off topic
and why did you ask for pictures of dayan cubes instead of an informative post
Off topic because people were complaining about the clubs being on the homepage, and pictures because that’s what the other clubs did. It didn’t really work because only one person joined :confused: :?.This club is much better probably because it has actual discussion about Dayan cubes

Yeah I didn't bother with the v2 because I usually don't care about adjusting springs or magnets.
Agreed. I do most of my slow practice and all of my public cubing on my TengYun because of how quiet it is. It has an amazingly soft and unique feel; the light magnets fit the cube very well but do catch you off guard during first turns. The collector in me has wanted a v2 for some time but since it’s apparently louder than the original and has a bunch of customization options I’m not into I just don’t see the point, the v1 is great!

I have it coming in the mail and I hope it becomes the 3x3 I just can't put down and stop playing with, like my Cubicle GTS2M was (also quite a soft and flexible cube). I have this strange fascination with Dayan, to the point where I play with my new plastic dayan 2x2 a lot even though the performance isn't as good as my other cubes. Something about the brand is like that of a classic car or retro computer. Idk.

Ive been playing with my tengyun v1 and I have to say idk what magic plastic Dayan used but this cube is extraordinarily quiet and low pitched. I can't even tell what's different about it, other than they used a massive amount of thin factory lube and maybe the internal primary plastic works well with the lube. I'll have an unboxing video for my new channel up hopefully tommorow. The piece design is also pretty interesting and I don't see people talking about it so that might become its own video too.

ive heard the term "torpedo" many times and i know it has something to do with piece design, but what is it actually? i have no clue lol
If you pull out an edge on modern cubes, there should be a flat bit of plastic on the edge base that hooks under a corner base and greatly reduced popping. Older cubes only had no hooking between corners or edges, or the edge simply sat on top of the corner base, making edges much more likely to pop out in the middle of a turn.

ah, ok. i thought that was what it was, but wasnt sure.
dumb question: would a double torpedo be possible? how would it affect the cube?

Yes it is possible, although I don't know the effect of the cube other than possibly making it more stable. I think the RS3M 2020 has a double layer torpedo with correspondingly shaped corner base.
