Tony Fisher said on his speedcubing page that the GuHong is the best one.

But I started asking myself this after hearing that the prototype for the new ZhanChi broke the WR.

I couldn't find this question anywhere else, so I thought I'd ask it: Which of the Dayan 3x3x3s has the best quality overall?

First off I think this topic is a little early as very few people actually have the ZanChi. That being said, I have the Guhoug, Lingyun and the LunHui. Out of those three the lubix ultimate guhong is defiantly the best and is my main. It almost never pops and has an extreamly smooth feeling. The The Linyun has a nice crisp feel but, I have a more aggressive solving style which results in a unsatisfactory amount of pops. The LunHui has potential but I haven't really bothered to mod the edges yet. With the 48 point edge mod I might make it my main, who knows. The ZanChi looks promising, but the complexity of the pieces (torpedo pieces) may cause some problems, at least that's my understanding from what I have read. I'm definaltly gong to buy the ZanChi when it comes out because dayan consistently produces outstanding puzzles.

It's not the Zhanchi that broke the WR; it's Feliks that broke the WR. It's quite annoying that people (especially puzzle sellers) promoted the fact that the Zhanchi helped Feliks a lot in breaking the WR. Feliks had been breaking WR even before Dayan before making 3x3s. Feliks is a great speedcuber, so it does not matter what cube is in his hands, I'm sure he'll still break the records sooner or later. I will not deny the fact that Dayan puzzles are great, but it's definitely not the main reason WRs are broken. In my opinion, I think people give too much credit to the Zhanchi and not enough to Feliks, who I'm sure put a lot of time and effort into his work.

I'm no speedcuber, but I share the quoted opinion. I like all three, but Guhong (actually the coloured version, because I have not to worry about stickers) is the best.
I have preordered the Zhan Chi.
And certainly Feliks could use all four of them :) (I'm supporting cublem's opinion)

the guhong is the best I have tried, although the zanchi looks to be better. it definitely wasn't the main ingredient in breaking the WR, but Feliks wouldn't have switched to it if it wasn't great. If you ask me the lunhui is terrible. it locks a lot, and it pops like crazy.

I thought someone from the ZhanChi prototype topic said Taiyan is a mistranslation of dayan.

My GuHong has never popped, although it's a little tight. Some people prefer the LingYun, but I prefer the Guhong for its smooth feel, rather than the clicky, rough feel of the LingYun.

I'd also like to see how the ZhanChi will do in competitions, aside from the obvious (i.e holding the world record).

Like if an unmodded zhanchi can face vs an modded guhong, I would say that the zhanchi is better. And my friend Tall just did an review of the zhanchi a couple of day ago if you want to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJi34DnvEtw

The Zhan Chi is unbelievably smooth. Even right out of the box it's awesome. I like it even more than the GuHong. Buy one now!!! :D

Cublem and Konrad: I would somewhat disagree. Whereas I can get sub 7 second solves on the LingYun, I find it hard to get sub 20 seconds solves on a store-bought. Obviously these are extremes, but with a major feature such as the T-pieces that prevent popping, it could help him a little bit (his old cube was the GuHong, which didn't have the popping preventers).

Back to topic: I'm a hardcore LingYun user, mainly because I haven't bought another 3x3x3 all year :lol:. I was going to buy the Godly GuHong from Izovire, but I've now looked at the ZanChi and decided I want that, so I may buy one just before I leave for France next week.

Izovire say that hes godly guhong is better, cause it cant cut a little more (witch is useless), but that's when the zhanchi is out of the box. So it prooves that the zhanchi have more potiental in a sence.

I think GuHong is the best for me at now (I didn't tested ZhanChi yet, but I think it's really good).
My solves are more agressive, forcing the twists, so pops are frequent. LingYun for me no way, because of this. LunHui is good because doesn't pop, but it locks a bit, so I returned to my GuHong.
Waiting for ZhanChi to compare.

It would be great if those of you who have voted change your votes once you try the ZanChi, or remove yours if you don't plan on it. I'm curious to see what the actual results are, and feel they're relatively biased at the moment because most haven't tried the zanchi.

I didn't vote yet. I'll vote after trying ZhanChi.

I have several GuHongs and several LunHuis (not even tried a LingYun or ZhanChi). LunHui is pretty good, apart from the fact it does actually pop, usually about 5 pieces at a time for me. I was annoyed at the GuHong popping until I added modded torpedo pieces from a LunHui to one, and stuck some small nails into the other (same idea, but doesn't require cannibalising from another cube), and now they both, in my opinion, almost faultless cubes. I highly recommend modifying a GuHong to make it popless.

I voted for the only one I own, the stickerless Guhong.
That thing is amazing.
The first 3x3 I own that I wouldn't think of lubing. That thing is super smooth.

You should still lube it.

1) It turns better (yes, better if you do it properly)
2) It extends the life of the cube.
