The YJ ZhiLong 5x5 M (aka the ZhiChuang) is a miniature magnetic 5x5 from popular toy manufacturer, YJ. The ZhiLong 5x5 M features strong inner magnets with lighter outer layer magnets, replicating the feel of higher-end 5x5 puzzles and gives the cube a stable, yet controllable feel.
We recommend this puzzle for people with smaller hands or those that enjoy smaller puzzles.

This 5x5 is great for small hands and if u wanna try 5x5 oh. Do not try to turn fast on the inner layers as then it’ll lock up and maybe pop. Overall, great 5x5 better if u have small hands
I loved the feel of the mini 4x4, so decided to get the mini 5x5 as well. If you're looking for a smaller 5x5, get this one. I lubed the core with adheron to reduce spring noise, but not the pieces because the feel ootb was perfect. I've never been into 5x5 much, but this cube makes me want to practise more.
The cube is very snappy but I have an issue with it catching and popping a lot, this is greatly helped by the magnets but you have to be fairly accurate at turning. When it does corner cut, it is very satisfying. It's around the same size as a 3x3 which I quite like as well. For a budget 5x5, which are notoriously sub-par compared to their flagship counterparts, it is excellent and well worth the money
The picture has the product on the right with a gan 11, for comparison.
It is an amazing 5x5. out of the box it is lubed perfectly and is a perfects tightness. I would really recommend it to cubers that have smaller hands. It comes with an awesome stand that you build your self. The lube last a really long time and instantly became my main. i now love solving 5x5 and love the event. I would really recommend it.
These brand of cubes are excellent. They turn smoothly and the colours on them are vibrant. Highly recommend.
