Frequently Asked Questions:
Why does the DIY Kit cost more than the Assembled version?
The DIY Kit contains many small and loose parts, so it requires additional labor compared to Assembled cubes, including screening them for missing, incorrect, or broken parts and providing after-sale service. Unfortunately, due to the extra labor and costs associated with maintaining a high level of quality in our DIY Kits, we must charge a little more for the DIY Kits than for the Assembled cubes.

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
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.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

This cube is really great, but it did not turn very well until I lubed it with weight 5 on the hardware, and Lubicle speedy on the pieces.
I was so excited to get the GuHong V2 because the V1 was my main. When I got the V2 I assembled it and it was so loose that it was almost unusable. I tightened it to the tightest tension and still there were a ton of pops. I have to say that I wouldn't recommend this to most people. But if you want to get it that is fine.
Got this DIY for my friend, because i taught him how to cube and he was using a generic rubik's cube (i felt bad for him) so i got him this. Absolutely loved it. The GuHong V2 is an amazing cube. the DIY was fun to do and i enjoyed it. and my friend loved it. defiantly using thecubicle again in the future.
very fast and easy to turn
no popping if tensioned correctly
very loud cube
not very smooth
Just got it recently and it is my first DIY cube. Definitely enjoyed putting it together, although the lubing and tensioning was a little confusing at first. It feels really nice and fast. It looks great with the half bright set of stickers :)
I haven't received a DIY in a long time and getting this was a lot of fun.
I think DIY kits are great! Not only do you get to assemble the cube but you also get to lube and tension the cube as you go. Another benefit is that you can make sure you set the screws into the core straight. On many pre-assembled cubes the screws go into the core at an angle.
Mine came with just the right amount of pieces but two sticker sets which is nice :)
The cube is fantastic. The GuHong v2 is my favorite DaYan cube and is pretty good for all levels of cubing. It's very smooth and fast yet controllable.
Comes with extra pieces, which is great! The floating feeling gives you more freedom to solve.
