Products

ShengShou 2x2

The ShengShou 2x2 was almost identical to the GhostHand 2x2. The mechanism consists of a bandaged 3x3x3, with rounded up edges and the inner and outer corners connected by a lock-up system.

ShengShou 3x3

Three different ShengShou 3x3 versions had been released prior to 2013.(2012 review) Later cubes are:

Shengshou Wind (Feng)

Released before June 2013. This cube is famous for being the quietest cube ever produced. However there is little corner-cutting with this cube and it is unsuitable as a speedcube.

Shengshou Aurora (JiGuang)

Released June 2013. A highly regarded cube on its release. Almost as quiet as the Shengshou Wind, but with better corner-cutting.

Shengshou Rainbow (CaiHong)

Shengshou's first attempt at a stickerless cube.

Shengshou Legend (ChuanQi)

Released March 2016. Shengshou's attempt to produce a more modern cube. It is an underwhelming cube with rather poor corner-cutting.

Shengshou FangYuan

Released August 2016. Released with little publicity, a good mid-price cube. It doesn't catch or pop, doesn't corner twist often, and corner cuts very well for a cube of its class.(KZ's Cube Review)

ShengShou 4x4

There have been 6 versions of this cube offered for sale, the newest being the ShengShou Wind 4x4. Corner cutting is comparable to the Maru, cutting over a cubie. Reverse corner cutting is good for a 4x4, around a 1/4 of a cubie. It has a spring/screw structure like the Maru but doesn't have misalignment problems. Turning has a clicky feel and the performance improves a bit after some breaking in. The corners/edges is rounded like the Haiyan cube making it having a better feel and more control. The size is reasonable (6.25cmx6.25cmx6.26cm), bigger than an Eastsheen and 2cm smaller than the huge Maru 4x4. At a weight of 161.1g, it has a very comfortable weight. Very cheap.

The mechanism is similar to a 5x5x5 Shengshou, with some pieces reduced and hidden.
