Hello.

I purchased my stickerless dayan guhong v2 a few days ago. After a lot of solving, i had a poping e noticed that the edge piece doesnt have the torpedo piece.

So i contacted the vendor and he said that the dayan cube have 5 versions and the one that i purchased doesnt come with the torpedoes pieces.
But as far i know the 5 versions of the dayan cube are tayan, guhong, ling yun, lun hui and zhanchi. Which all of then have the torpedoes pieces.

Am i right? All dayan cubes have the torpedoes pieces? Or there is a version which doesnt have the piece?

Thanks.

And sorry for my english.

The guhong is the 2nd Dayan cube. It's sometimes called a "Dayan 2". The one with torpedoes is called the Guhong II or sometimes Dayan V2 Guhong II. Here's a review at speed cube shop:

My favorite cube was a Dayan V2 Guhong I which is apparently what you've got. It's a little big for my arthritic fingers and I'm now using a Zhanchi 55mm. To make the Guhong I smooth, be sure to do the 48 point mod and smooth out the undersides of the corners (i.e. the spherical surface which is closest to the center of the cube).

Oh, my bad.

I really purchased the dayan 2 guhong, and not the dayan guhong 2.

Well, does the torpedoes pieces fit in the edge pieces of the dayan 2?
Is worthful to buy the torpedoes pieces?

Or the cube is better without then?

I readed/viwed a lot reviews, some said that is better with, other said that is better without.

Torpedos will fit in some of the pieces but some will need to me modified so the torpedos will fit. I think it's definitely worth it if you're having issues with popping.
