QiYi Bullfight

The QiYi Bullfight is known for the controversy involving this and the Newisland Phoenix. Newisland got ahold of QiYi's plans of the Bullfight, and made their own version and called it the Phoenix. The Bullfight's release came after the Phoenix did, so for a while, many people thought that QiYi had re-branded the Newisland Phoenix. However, Newisland later came clean and admitted that the Phoenix was indeed a knockoff of the Bullfight.

QiYi Thunderclap

The QiYi Thunderclap is an improved version of the Bullfight, and many still use it as their main. It is known for its relatively low price ($9.00) and amazing performance.

It is also worth noting that Newisland re-branded the Thunderclap as well, calling their version the Lightning.

QiYi Sail

The QiYi Sail is a 3x3x3 budget cube. It is fast and clicky, and can corner cut about 45° forwards, and approximately half of a piece reverse. The edge pieces will pop out on looser tensions. The edge and corner pieces have caps on the sides, which can fall out, and the cheap plastic is known to break under stress. However, it is still considered to be one of the best budget cubes on the market for its performance.
