So much better than the diansheng, if it’s out of stock just wait it’s worth it. The diansheng unscrews when you turn a side after jot even 100 solves.
Really fun to solve but it does not turn very well and it pops.
So, I ordered this puzzle originally in May after noticing a few videos about speed solving it. When the puzzle arrived, I was overall underwhelmed, the puzzle out of the box is stiff, but that can be solved by loosening the tensions a bit. The bigger problem was the catching. This puzzle is over 10 years old, and the design definitely shows it. It is blocky, catchy and there are very pointed edges on every piece. I looked around online and I discovered a tutorial by Ben Streeter about how to modify the puzzle to improve the performance. So I followed it, and 6 hours later, I had finished the first modded puzzle I've done in years. After lube and fiddling with the tensions some more, I had a fluid turning puzzle that I could speed solve on. 1500 solves and a 5th place at Cubing at Home 1.4, I can say that this puzzle performs much better than it may seem ootb. There are still some popping issues and obviously not many people want to extensively mod their puzzle. But with some care and attention, this puzzle can be fun and enjoyable to solve!
This Cube came a little stiff out of the box, but after playing with it and figuring out how to solve it, I can say that it is a very fun and well turning puzzle.
I'm personally interested in the different cubes out there.
I have an understanding of how to solve most of the puzzle cubes in my collection. (I still have an Egg and a Ghost to solve..)
I've found this was stiff and "crunchy" OOTB. It's getting better w/ea. scramble and solve. Lube may help.
As a collector, it's a great addition.
This is by far the most frustrating puzzle I've held. It catches at nearly every other turn. It's insane to try to do algorithms when you can't have ANY flow. Very frustrating.
Great octahedron puzzle. Would recommend. Only problems are it does not turn on axes centered around corners (hence the term "face turning") and is not a particularly fast puzzle. Comparable to Master Pyraminx in terms of speed except slightly more sticky and more sturdy. Also, it does not corner cut like the Master Pyraminx.
Also, shoud get brighter color stickers
Right of the box I wouldnt say that it it turns smooth but it turns good enough so that you dont have any problems with it. After a time it gets even better. The stickers are really high quality and it never pops.
Fun puzzle. It's my first octahedron and I like it a lot. I'm trying to figure it out on my own and it does challenge me. It's a good size and a decent weight. Stickers are quite thin but they haven't peeled or flaked any. The only issue I have is that it doesn't hold lube and it is very stiff. Kind of like MF8 puzzles.
