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.

Got this for christmas, very smooth inners and outers OOTB, nice sound and feeling, only problem is it has super unstable outers, inners are also a little unstable, but controllable, looking to get a lube to slow it down, very nice for my first 5x5
its pretty good but you have to break it in
I love this cube! it turns great and is a perfect size!
I bought this cube way back when it first came out and have used it up till recently when I bought the YuXin 5x5. I’ve tried multiple spring strips and lives for this cube which workout for the most part. Years back I also modified it adding Florian holes and smoothed out the imperfections. The corner cutting was only slightly improved afterwards, but popped more after Modding. I’ve since gotten frustrated with the constant popping and lockup’s of this puzzle, leading me to buy the YuXin brand. I Wouldn’t recommend this cube to anyone who is competitive in 5x5 or wants a cube that can corner cut better.
The ShengShou 5x5 is my first 5x5. I got it as a gift, so I didn't have to pay to try it. :) Anyways, getting to the point, it has a nice small feel, and it only catches every once in a while. I usually get solves of about 10 minutes, which for me is pretty good, considering I've only had it for 1 month. Long story short, it's a great cube for beginners, but there's not much exciting about it.
After overlubing it with weight 1 lube, the cube was amazingly smooth and fast, amazing to solve.
I got this cube a while back, and I really enjoy solving it, but as the title suggests, not the best if you're looking for a speedcube.
the stickers are good. Overall turning is pretty good, little crunchy. the corner cutting is Ok. BUT, there are some pretty big catches, and if it catches and you don't notice in time, it will explode.
- Breaking in
- Very smooth
- Moves fast and is not sluggish
- Great for modding
- Catches frequently
- Not hard to lock
- Pops occasionally
- Normal: Barely over line to line
- Reverse: About 1/4 of a piece
This is very cheap, keep that in mind. It pops pretty easily if you try to corner cut too far. It is pretty fast and somewhat crunchy. The stickers kind of suck. The shades are pretty bad in my opinion, but they also peel and rip pretty easily. It is great especially for beginners because of it's price. Overall very nice for _ or = 10 dollars.
I had this cube for about a month and I was doing parity when one of the pieces caught and it exploded on me! Don't get this cube it will just explode!
