    Little belated, but I have finally learnt full OLL! My recognition on knight shapes is a bit iffy (they were the last cases I learnt) but with practice that will go away

    Yep, I could have learnt OLL in a month but I procrastinate a lot until my comp is in 3 days and I realise I better learn them quick

    If you learn full oll and pll your times will drop guaranteed

    Rn my 3x3 times are really horrible as I've been working on other cubes
    Since you start Melbourne Summer tomorrow and probably won’t get time to read Speedsolving.com, good luck at the comp.
    Switched back to redux yesterday. Dunno if this is for certain or if I'll go back to Yau. Maybe even I could consider method neutrality as I average the same on both, but I do find redux more fun and it opens up more options for f2c
    MGC 5x5 is AMAZING! It's faster and a bit quieter than it larger counterpart the MGC 6x6, has excellent shades. I have already done at least 25 solves on this cube and have broken my pb 3 times and have dropped my average by 10 seconds to 2:30. My current PB is 2:08.792. Certainly a welcome upgrade over my Huanglong!

    Also I really like super floppy cube now fro some reason. I'll get bored of it soon I'm sure :D

    I have done a U2 U2 on one before when I was judging someone I tried when I put it back in the cube cover. I don't remember what it felt like except that it was much nicer than my main at the time, the Huanglong. I'll try to find one over the next three days at my comp and try it

    ok, cool. I really like my Valk 5 but I was wondering if I should try this one out.
    GAN 356 X
    GAN 356 X
    It prolly won't replace your Valk 5 as most people still use it as their main. Its still a great puzzle all the same
    Started learning 2 Blind with help from my friend and J Perms vid. Prolly not the ideal time to learn something new with a comp in 3 days and 2 more OLLs to learn :confused: :?

    I'm gonna hopefully talk to him today so he can help me out where I struggle

    What part are you struggling with? Also, considering you live in Australia, meeting Jack Cai might be more likely ;)
    GAN 356 X
    GAN 356 X
    I have met Jack. I FaceTimed my friend and I understand it better now. he suggests learning 3 blind before 2 blind if a really struggle. I find the story making part really fun (ik, you don't have to make a story for 2 blind)
    Just lubed my GTS2M 3x3 with DNM and Silk, and the results were amazing. I'm even considering it as my main. Its gotten a lot quieter and sounds amazing, and feels so smooth and fast whilst remains controllable, something I struggled with other setups.

    Seems like I’ll have to get those Cubicle lubes at one point. Is Silk water based? Because I have heard people refer to it as a good core lube as well as a good piece lube.
    GAN 356 X
    GAN 356 X
    Silk is silicone based and DNM is water based. They are staples for my cubes. Oh and weight 5
    Just ordered a few more cubes for myself and my friend! I got him some silk, a meilong 4x4, and a daily puzzles cube stand. For myself I got and MGC 5x5 as my Huanglong just wasn't very good, and I have enough money to upgrade a cube if it will make me enjoy the event more. I also got a Qiyi fidget spinner for my sister
    Very nice ao5

    Happy new year cubers! My goals for 3x3 is hopefully sub-8 single, sub-12 average. I hope to get sub-6 on pyraminx, sub-3.5 on 2x2, sub-1:50 for 5x5, sub 45 for 4x4, sub-45 sq-1 etc.

    Is this the double x-cross you were talking about?

    I don't have a cube on me right now, but in the actual solve a only did a normal x cross. What time did you get?
    ProStar
    ProStar
    Sorry, I left the house and didn't get to do the solve. I just did it, and got 16.631 with the double x cross. 18.641 with the single x cross. I'd say the 2 free pairs into LL skip is way crazier.
