The YJ chilong is a relativley cheap cube, coming in at $5.75 USD. The shades are average moyu shades, which is nice. Out of the box, the cube is controllable. I have a somewhat slower than average speed preference, so this is good. Keep in mind that the cube isnt slow, its just a little slower than the Aolong or the Weilong. Corner cutting is OKAY. it cuts a little less than 45 degrees with some force. I have a Aolong v2 And a Weilong v2 and out of the 2, this is my main. And a big plus is that the cube is pretty CHEAP and GOOD, so if i break or lose it, i can just buy another one, where is if i had a Aolong it would take almost 2x the money to replace. Overall GOOD CUBE. GET IT.

This is essentially an improvement over the SuLong... I think I might call this the "Poor Man's AoLong." It's slightly "clackier" as described by the cubicle.us description, and corner cuts better. It also feels slightly lighter. SLIGHTLY. The stability is about the same. In general, if you have the SuLong, get this cube; it's practically a flat-out upgrade.
I use mildly increased Tensions and no lube for this cube. I like the clacky sounds it makes when it turns. It's more of a cube I solve for fun than speed, but maybe you'll like it more!

7/10: YJ Chilong 3x3
The YJ Chilong is another addition to YJ's line of budget 3x3 speed cubes. Featuring a very similar mechanism to the Yulong and Sulong, it also provides similar performance.
Out of the box it feels very smooth, yet with a sort of crunchy feeling and clicky sound to it. It is reasonably fast, but is nothing outstanding or out of the ordinary. Corner cutting is average, being able to cut about 45 degrees but with some effort, while reverse is very little.
After breaking in abit and applying lubricant and tensioning the cube to my preference, the performance slightly improved, most noticeably the speed and the corner cutting. The Chilong sometimes pops or gets corner twists, but it's pretty rare as the cube feels very solid and well put together for a budget 3x3.
Overall this cube is a solid choice for anybody on a budget that is looking for a decently performing 3x3 speed cube. While it doesn't offer anything outstanding or have any strong aspects, the solid all round performance makes it a great choice especially for beginner cubers.

The Chilong is smooth with a clicky response. It has a similar mechanism to the Sulong and Yulong making it not as different as the other two. Stock stickers are the same as usual and can be replaced to anyone's liking. This is a great cube for a collection purpose or amazing for beginners
