    Is SpeedCubeStore.co.uk FAKE?

    To make an update: I did finally receive the cube. The problem was their customer service - they did not contact me at all.

    Goal: Sub 30/26 (28.98) 24.70 26.92 28.85 25.04 27.10 28.18 26.86 (21.15) 22.38 28.703 25.140 26.38 average. I have been getting a lot faster recently, so I would say my goal is now to get sub 26.

    [Help Thread] Name all the alg sets for me

    There is an algorithm set for doing 1LLL, but it requires around 1,100 algorithms. It is extremely difficult to learn and recall this many algorithms, but some cubers have memorized this many algorithms. I would recommend this only if you are extremely focused on 3x3. Alternatively, you could...

    Which Cube Should I Get? Up To Date Recommendations

    For 7x7, I would recommend the X-Man Spark M. It is used by choice by both Feliks and Max, so if you have the budget, I would recommend it.

    Upcoming puzzles

    GAN will be releasing a 5x5 soon. They mentioned in a post that the GAN box would be applied to their new 4x4 and 5x5. Link: https://i.redd.it/biwl2vypr0v01.png

    Which Cube Should I Get? Up To Date Recommendations

    I would say you should buy the X-Man Shadow M 6x6 and/or the X-Man Spark M 7x7. This is because these events are fun to practice and easier to get world-class on than other WCA Events excepting Megaminx.

    Which Cube Should I Get? Up To Date Recommendations

    GAN sponsors Feliks and Max to use their 3x3s, as it is arguably the main WCA event. I know that they both started using them out of choice, and then GAN offered them a sponsorship

    Which Cube Should I Get? Up To Date Recommendations

    I think most of what you have in this list is correct for most people, but I think you should update 3x3 and 4x4 a little. 3x3 Whilst this is a recent addition to the GAN 3x3 range, I think the XS is most definitely the best 3x3 on the market right now, making improvements on the magnet and...

    I don't know... the Pythagorean theorem can be used to solve many complex triangular problems elegantly, and without it, some of them would be impossible to solve. I presume you are talking of a2 +b2 = c2
