I would agree about blue nuts. I think they are the best for this cube. I know yellow ones were good for older Gan cubes but, I tried them and they are too strong for 354. So far, blue are great. This is very stable cube for Gan but not as gts3 or valk. I do have gts3 and it is also amazing. I...
Congrats to all you guys for great results. Amazing BLD there
I went to our nationals, 4BLD was DNF by 2 wrong wings and the time limit of 45 minutes was only enough for 2 attempts. 5BLD was also too much for me. The schedule was at strange hours, I was just too tired. I did the memo but too...
Rehearsing BLD, I totaly neglected my 5x5 training. I timed myself for next weekend nationals.
avg of 5
avg of 12
Still far away from 2:00 best of two limit, but much better then I expected.
After long time I had an hour without somebody bothering me. My first 4BLD success ( second timed try) 24.44,22. I made a very long memo, don't know how long, (more then 16 minutes), just wanted to be sure. I can still remember it:)
Ok, I learned, I can do it. Now, I will go with faster memo and...
I don't use optimized comms yet, my level is not there yet. Still learning them. What I've noticed is, that comms for edges/wings are quite fingertrick difficult, I much prefer Mark's advanced M2 approach as the solution is nicer, but few more moves sometimes. I say advanced M2 (or r2 for...
Ok, so mostly DF. I would understand it is easier to track pieces during memo with UF. what about 3-cycles corners? Do you use UBL buffer of URF? Do you switch buffer a lot? I move buffer on centres sometimes, when it is in the way of a setup, but just sometimes.
I see you all use UF buffer. I am still on DF. i am intrigued to switch to UF, but first I want to go on some comp with what i am used to. I use some y rotations when I do +/x centres. It is hard not to use it, much easier to 3-cycle centres.
When I trace edges I use fingers to cover L and R layer, but not cover the middle layer pieces. Just keep track if all 3 are already traced. It is easier on fingers and don't miss a side edge. At the same time I keep focus on middle 3 with my mind. It works for me.
I mostly use numbers for...
