I've been looking for the perfect 3x3 for me and currently I'm using a black FangShi ShuangRen with a C4U core and Full bright stickers.

Currently I've got a Milky Zhanchi w/ C4U core and full bright stickers, a white FangShi ShuangRen w/ stock hardware and Izo's favourite stickers, a stickerless Guhong V2 and a MoYu WeiLong pre-ordered.

What's yours? Are you waiting for a better one? How "loyal" are you to your main?

My main is my black FangShi at the moment, but I'm going to break in my Milky Zhanchi, maybe CPM mod it and decide again after my WeiLong arrives.

My potential mains (all have a C4U core except for white FangShi):



Black FangShi



Stickerless Guhong V2



White FangShi





Milky Zhanchi

My main 3x3's are: Dayan Zhanchi (CPM modded), Dayan Zhanchi (Not modded) and Dayan Guhong v1 (Not Modded)

My 2 zhanchis feel totally different, the mod might have changed the feel a bit, but they were really different even before I modded one. The modded one is so much smoother and quieter. Anyone who has an idea why?

For 2 handed I've been using a 57 mm white ZhanChi since it came in 2011, with cubesmith halfbrights (all my cubes have halfbrights).

For OH I have 2 mains, a LingYun1 and a LingYun2, also been using those since they were released.

ATM I don't see any cube replacing them :cool:

It's hard to tell for me, because I always switch cubes and don't really have a 'main'.
I used my Guhong V2 and some Zhanchis the most, but now with the Fangshi and MoYu I have two new cubes...

The MoYu I don't like, and somehow my times are much worse with this cube. The Fangshi is kind of good, but not so fast, so I tend to go back to a Zhanchi. But after using the Fangshi for a few hundered solves, I have the feeling that the Zhanchis lock up much more than before.

So I am not sure if Fangshi or Zhanchi

I'd have to say Guhong v2. I use a sticky and gross zhanchi for OH and it's actually really nice and controllable. Apart from that brand new zhanchis are orgasmic.

In terms of cube that I have put most solves on, I'm not sure. I have 5 Zhanchis so the sum of those solves is probably the greatest. I have 2 ShuangRens and I keep one at work so I generally solve it slowly and quietly practicing look ahead during meetings. I've been using my Moyu HuangYing a lot but it's because I just got it. I haven't solved my milky Zhanchi a lot because it has stock stickers on it while I wait for my replacement edge piece from zcube but I do really like the feel of it. I'd say my Lubix Zhanchi with Cubesmith studio tiles on it is my main in terms of shear number of solves on it but my Lubix Fusion Guhong might be a close second.

omg, i love how the milky zhanchi looks! where can you get it? oh and back to the question guhong v2 and however i prefer 50mm zhanchi (best cube ever!)
I bought mine from zcube.cn (Afaik they don't sell them anywhere else). Fun thing is they send black, white, purple, orange, red, yellow, blue and green stickers AND application tape. Check the picture! The whole set basically. The colours are plain though, like on the regular dayan set.


You really ought to put those pictures in spoiler tags. Oh and my main is a Lubix Lingyun v2
Didn't know this forum had them, so I resized the picture to under 50kb. I'll hide them too, thanks for the tip!

The poll is seriously biased because there is only one category for Dayan cubes.
Hard to figure out if you're being sarcastic or not. Do you mean it would be better to have 7 out of 10 options to be different dayan cubes instead? The poll is limited to 10 options max. That would seem biased to me. The idea is not to see what's the best really, but to discuss what people like and what they base their opinions on. The poll is just a little add-on, not that relevant to the thread.
