    It stands for sub-optimal, meaning it takes more moves than the most efficient way to solve the case, so it may be longer, but with better ergonomics.

    Oh, that makes sense.

    Thanks!
     
  3. How could I describe my turning style?

    I prefer looser cubes. All my mains are loosened from stock tensions and I have the purple ges nuts on my Air. I don't lock up at all but do need moderately good corner cutting once in a while.

    Do you want cube recommendations or...?
     
  5. I want to know how to describe my turning style. I've been searching the internet for about an hour. I'm pretty happy with most of my current mains.

    It's going to be hard for anyone else to describe it without being able to see it in a video or something.
     

  7. Purple air or the green AoLong are what my turning style is like usually during solves. The others were cubes I wasn't very used to
     
  8. Here, I made a slow motion video for you.

    Reasonably standard but it appears slighto jerk and catchy though the transition between moves is fairly good.

    I have the Gan 356s V2 and love it. The Valk 3 seems pretty popular as well.

    I swear I saw somewhere that rubik's cubes with white touching yellow were made before a certain time, when the color scheme was switched to white across from yellow. Anyone have info on that?

  14. They switched the blue and yellow sides. The old colour scheme is now known as the Japanese colour scheme.

    I'm not sure about this, but it was very early. I still own two original Rubik's cubes that I bought in 1981. Both of them have what is now known as the Japanese color scheme.

    I'm pretty sure that by the early nineties they were all the Western color scheme instead.

    I ordered from thepuzzlestore a week or two ago and it was quite good. Shipping was decent (like £3) and the cubes came in two days.
