42mm Dayan ZhanChi Review

October 11th, 2013

I said it twice in the video review: it’s just a ZhanChi. But when you hold it and play with it, it feels like so much more. I imagine it has something to do with our perception of small things being cute? The stickers are pretty decent actually. Historically DIY’s specialty cubes from China have had really bad greens, yellows, and oranges.

It’s not a main cube, you’d be crazy to use this as a main cube. The ergonomics of it just don’t work either, my thumbs end up feeling tweaked after a short session with the cube. One thing I didn’t mention in the video review is how you physically have to push less, to be precise: the arc length your finger travels to turn a side is shorter.

If you’re looking for a good small cube, this is most likely your end all solution. The 42mm ZhanChi can be bought at Lightake.com for $8 and the ship anywhere in the world.
