    The reconstruction thread

    7.30 3x3 single on my first day back to practicing in several months. I'm barely sub-11 when warmed up so this is pretty solid for me. Totally should've been sub-7 and a PB but I locked up at the beginning of my J perm. Was able to find better solution afterwards but I'm still somewhat content...

    Well apparently TheCubicle is working on special magnetic Angstrom clocks set to release in November/ December according to an Instagram post I saw

    A Collection of Algorithms

    I came up with an 11 move Jb perm. It's probably marginally slower than the normal one and it's one more move than the optimal one with R U L gen but it goes like this (r' F R F') (r U2 R' U) (R U2 R'). The way it works is you start with a sledgehammer except the first R' is a wide move. Then...

    Half centers isn't really helpful until you're like sub-1 and using look-ahead consistently

    Dayan TengYun M

    This cube is notoriously fast and many find it to be uncontrollable. However, the corner cutting is fantastic. I found a setup on this cube that is absolutely incredible, and I even considered switching to it as my 3x3 main. I ended up sticking with my trusty GTS3 but I am using this TengYun for...

    Cubing in Colorado

    I should be there! Hoping to get a sub-12.5 3x3 average, sub-4 2x2 average, sub-50 4x4 average, 1:35ish Megaminx average, and just to make the time limit for 7x7 lol because I don't practice big cubes. I don't care about Pyra and never practice so I'll be find with like a 10 or 11 average.

    The reconstruction thread

    In the fourth 3x3 solve of this week's (week 38) online competition, I got a LL skip. It ended up being a 7.88 second solve which is awesome considering I average about 12. This is the scramble: R2 U' B2 L2 U R2 U F2 D' R2 U2 L' B U' R' U2 F U L2 R'. If somebody wants to help me reconstruct the...

    Best Megaminx comparison

    LM is least catchy. MGC Has equally good corner cutting but it's easier to overshoot because it's so fast. I've tried the QiHeng but never a magnetic one

    Best Megaminx comparison

    I prefer the LM. The MGC is too big and corner twists, but is lighter and how faster turning. Both are good

    2x2 blind

    I just learned2BLD and I'musing Old Pochmann. I'm averaging sub-1 with a 50-60%ish success rate. I have a sub-30 single and another 30 flat. 45s are not uncommon. My memo time is really inconsistent but my solve time is consistently sub-20. Any tips? Other than "just practice" which is honestly...

    That's about what my F2C are. I agree that my F3E need the most work. Do you think my 3-2-3 is ok? Thanks for the response btw Edit: Not what my F2C are by time. But I have my whole first center planned and I track at least 2 pieces of second center and preserve bars when I have them

    Here's the deal: I've recently started practicing 4x4 but I would like to get faster. I'm sub-13 on 3x3 but my 4x4 average is in the low-50s on a good day and I feel like I should be a lot faster at 4x4 than I am. I use Yau of course. Below are the time splits for each step: F2C: sub-5 First 3...

    The reconstruction thread

    Not a PB or anything but just a really efficient full step solve(8.75). Could've been low 7 if it didn't have those two rotations during F2L. Scramble: U' B' R2 F' D' L' F' L F2 L2 U' R2 F2 B2 D F2 U' L2 B2 U' y // Inspection R' U F2 U2 F2 // Yellow X-cross (Solves GR) y' L' U L // Second pair...

    When should I learn CLL.

    Just as an update for anybody who cares, I'm learning CLL. I've only had time to learn a few algs (like 15) but this week I'm going start doing one or two per day. Thanks for all the attention on this thread!!
