    I thought this was less likely than sub 1:20 on 6x6...

    Someone will someday get a sub 30 5x5 single.

    World records don't decrease at the same rate they always have; those last 2 are seriously unrealistic and sub 30 by next year is very highly unlikely.

    You might think that but people a couple of years ago thought sub 40 is unrealistic on 5x5 and in 2010 no-one thought that in 6 years there would be a sub 5 3x3 solve yea I overpredict too much but we will have to see

    I get that people couldn't predict it long term, but you are saying that next year the 5x5 single will drop 8 seconds. Now I can't be bothered to make a line graph of the world records, but here you can see how it slows down: https://www.worldcubeassociation.or...?regionId=&eventId=555&years=&history=History

    I get what you mean but even tho 5x5 single aren't so much different from 2016 to now there is a chances that it might happen especially since hardware improves so much and there is already a big drop in times

    I hope Feliks will do a sub-42.01 5x5 average one day (better than his first 4x4 average WR).
