The DaYan 2x2 50mm is the larger of the two DaYan 2x2 sizes. It boasts an internal mechanism similar to that of the critically-acclaimed ZhanChi. It is quick but doesn't overturn and cuts corners nicely.

Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

OOTB, the DaYan 2x2’s a little on the crunchy side. I had previously owned a 2x2 DaYan that was far smoother to turn and had more of a heft to it, but this one feels lighter and a bit more fragile. I’ll probably keep shopping until I stumble upon a 2x2 that I like. Until then, this will have to suffice. It's not terrible, but it fails to impress.
This cube is rly gud but is too smooth for me. I believe it’s an op.
I got the 46mm version, but that one was discontinued, so I'll review this one. It was significantly better than my Rubiks 2x2 and was the best cube in my collection for a while, but my recent spree of getting newer cubes (2019 and 2020 cubes) has shown me that it isn't that good. The problem of corner twisting and popping is mostly fixed with some tightening, but without any lube, it is really stiff and scratchy and loud. With the MAX lubes these problems are minimized, but it still doesn't stand up to more modern tech. I got it because the fastest times were with this 2x2, but I recently realized that the fastest times are all flukes (usually just a 4 move solve). Averages give way more away, and the fact that hardly any of the fastest now use this cube shows that there are better ones out there. I'm saving up for a Valk now.
I got this 2x2 a month ago and i averaged 32 then i got this and with the same technique i get sub 20 average. It's so smooth. It came amazing right outta the box and i didn't have to use lube. There is one con though. The corners twist pretty easily so sometimes i get DNFs for that. Other than that, it's awsum. I totally recommend this product to anyone who wants a faster 2x2.
This is the greatest 2x2 cube on the market right now, but you need to know what you’re doing. I bought one last December. When I received it, the tensions were too loose for my liking. I tightened it and used it for two months with no lube. I broke it. I thought I got ripped off, and I shopped for a new one. I searched youtube for the cubes used for the fastest times, but all I saw were Dayans. So I did something I thought I would regret for sure, I bought another, with some lube along with it. This time, I didn’t touch the tensions. I gave it 300 solves to break it in and it didn’t pop or lock up once. The tensions were perfect, I just didn’t know it the first time. I even asked for a backup logo sticker, and I got an entire sticker set for free. No I’m not being payed in any way to write this. My average went from 8 seconds to 6 seconds, and I have yet to lube it. Thanks, Cubicle! (Yes I’m a real customer. Heres proof: poopo)
I got this and at first I didn't like it, but bbn I set it up and broke it in and it feels amazing and never pops
I have both an old and new plastic version of this puzzle. They feel mostly identical, so I wouldn't say one is better than the other; the difference is very subtle. They perform amazingly. Pops rarely happen, though tensioning has mitigated this issue. The cubes have a very smooth and soft feel. I would recommend to more advanced solvers who know how to set up cubes; these often need setting up out of the box. Other than that,
i got it in white, and it performs as good if not better than my gan 249!
When I first got the cube, it felt like a dollar store cube. It was crusty, bumpy, and slow. Then I put some Lunar, Candy Cane, and Compound Ten in it, as well as magnetize it. After I did that and did a few hundred solves, the cube was amazing. It has popped on me in competition, but it is still worth it. I would not recommend this cube to a beginner or even intermediate solver however. You need experience in setting up 2x2s to make this cube worth your while. Other than that, if you set the cube up, it is amazing. Out of this world. I would recommend it.
Out of the box, this cube was very bumpy, and in the first couple of turns it popped. In a few weeks I learned how to re-assemble it and then I started solving with it. After a couple hundred solves, it is broken in. It is now smooth and very good.
Overall, if you want to get this cube, learn how to re-assemble one immediately, as this cube pops a lot.
If you want to know, this batch is the new plastic version.
