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.

Whilst I'm not that great at reviewing non-WCA puzzles, I'd like to share my opinion.
This Octahedron is pretty nice, corner cutting is nearly line to line. However, reverse corner cutting is lacking, and as a result it seems to lock up once in a while. Nothing too disastrous, though. The white plastic version that I bought had White, Red, Pink, Black, Green, Blue, Orange and Yellow stickers. The sticker quality seems to be holding up. I've done around 5-10 solves on this and I haven't yet chipped a sticker. Pops do occur occasionally. All in all, pretty decent Octahedron, if you don't mind small pops once in a while. My cube did come with Maru Lube.
Since now it's on clearance for 9 bucks, I'd completely recommend it. I would've recommended the Lan-Lan instead, but this one is way cheaper.
TL;DR get Maru octahedron istead of lanlan because it's good and on clearance.
Its an okay puzzle. I received mine and the tensions were way too tight. So tight, you couldnt move the puzzle. When loosen the screws and added Maru lube, its now way too loose. My suggestion is to be careful with the tensions
This is a very rough turning puzzle right out of the box. Mine came very loose and popped a lot. However after adding a little bit of the Maru lube that came with it and tightening it some the cube has improved. The pieces still catch, but if you really want to you can sand the internal pieces some so the pieces do not catch as much, which will increase the turning quality greatly. Overall decent puzzle but main problems are catching and pops
