The YJ ZhiLong is the first mass produced magnetic 50mm 3x3x3 speedcube, it does have all the features of top-range big cubes such as the full range of corner cutting and a smooth, stable performance. The other popular 50mm cube, the MoFang JiaoShi mini 3x3x3 was popular amongst some in the One-Handed Solving event and we expect this to be the same, it certainly will not suit everyone but if you like small cubes then this is definitely the cube for you!

If the item is faulty:
If you find a fault with the product within 30 days that significantly restricts your ability to use it you may request to return it for fixing or a replacement if fixing is not possible. Once you have provided reasonable evidence that the product is faulty and cannot easily be fixed then you can return it to 128 Valley Road, Loughborough, LE11 3QA.
I will then attempt to fix it myself, usually I will be able to easily fix it and can then send it back to you quickly, if I am unable to fix it then I can offer a replacement of the product or a refund or similar product if the item is no longer in stock.
Please note that if a cube pops, this is not a reasonable justification for a return, all good cubes have the potential to pop occasionally, if it happens frequently you should consider tightening the tensions or turning more smoothly. Learning to fix popped cubes is an important part of your growth and development as a cuber, it is a very useful skill to develop, I have some tutorials on fixing pops on my youtube channel and there are obviously many more online.

It's become my new one-handed main. It's nice and cheap and great for my little sister (6 years old) to use as she has small hands!
Excellent value for money, the best cube for one-hand. Easy to customise the tension and the magnet strength is optimal. Very smooth operation with a little lubrication.
I have quite big hands so why did I buy this? I just fancied having a cube that was a little smaller to carry about in a pocket but that was much more usable than one of those little key-ring versions. A travel cube to practise and memorise algs on rather than going for that PB. Overall, the quality is a few notches up from what I expected at this price range. It feels great, turns nicely and the magnets do a good job - I can use it almost as fast as a decent full size. I was worried that 50mm wasn't a large enough reduction in edge size but 50mm multiplied by 3 dimensions has a decent reducing effect on the volume - it definitely fits in a pocket way better than a full size. I think the size is perfect: any smaller and it would be annoying to use and any larger and it would be too close to a full size to be worth owning.
What a brilliant little cube this is. I've been wanting to try a small cube for a while now as I have short fingers & I'm missing the tops of two of them. This is just great. Turns beautifully out of the box, light & fast, but not too fast. Corner cutting is exemplary, better than any of my other cubes & lock ups are few & far between it really is a pleasure to use. Downsides? I wouldn't mind if the magnets were a smidgen stronger, and my fingers are fat as well as short, so can sometimes end up tripping over themselves due to the size. Overall though, I cannot speek highly enough of this puzzle. Great value too.
