So Today I'm going to be reviewing the YJ GuanSu, a 4x4 by the child company of MoYu. I unboxed this cube on YouTube, so please feel free to check that out here.
The YJ GuanSu is $8 on TheCubicle.us, although I bought it on ebay here, as the postage is a lot cheaper. It came packaged ok, and out of the box I could tell it was going to be a great cube. Stock tensions were excellent, and didn't need changing at all, as well as it was already lubed so that didn't need changing either. I have now done ~50 solves on it, and I haven't noticed a significant improvement, but there definitely has been a bit of a change.
The turning on the outer layers is amazing, but the inner layers are sometimes slow and sluggish. The corner cutting with stock tensions is not great, only 1/2 of a cubie and a fraction of reverse. I have never had a pop, but the cube does minor catches sometimes. Here is a photo of the mechanism for those of you that are interested:
The stickers are the standard Moyu shades, and they are excellent quality, as is standard from Moyu and its derivatives.
All in all, I would recommend this 4x4 to anyone, as it is great quality and definetly speedcubeable, as well as being extremely cheap.
