Not to advertise, but if you're still looking for a store to buy the SS from, I'd go with iCubemart (http://www.icubemart.com/apps/webstore/products/show/2442090). I've had really good experiences with them in the recent past.
I just got mine a couple of days ago and did nothing but put a lot of lubix in the core and outer pieces. Pretty much everyone agrees that it's one of the best 4x4s they've ever used. If anyone is at Nats tomorrow and wants to try it out, find me :P
Good god......... WHAT?
Technically that would be a DNF right, since it isn't "flat" :/. Magic judges are always really strict about that, I hate it...
But seriously, that's amazing! Better than a lot of regular magic solves! Bravo! Can't wait to meet you at nationals! :)
Nice! What kind of software do you use? I use 3d Studio Max quite frequently for visual effects projects, if you need any help with lighting, etc. contact me!
And yes, a huge cube (preferably something ridiculous) would be awesome!
I just started breaking 20s consistently, but here are my stats:
1) How fast is your F2L? (Cross included) : ~8-12 s
2)Do you use intuitive or algorithmic F2L?: Intuitive, though I know like, 2 of the annoying cases algorithmically
3)Do you know full OLL?: Nope, just 2-look, though I know maybe...
Assuming you posted this for suggestions ;) :
Just keep practicing, your solves seem pretty efficient. Try really looking ahead and recognizing the PLL and OLL before you finish the prior step. That's the goal when solving 2x2, preemptive recognition.
Also, with practice, you'll get the TPS on...
If you're only shooting for around a minute, a Cube4You would be ideal, they come in literally every color you can think of. Get a pink or purple one (I'm thinking in stereotypes here ;) ) and get some of the new Cubesmith fluorescent stickers that have bright colors (including pink). And BAM :D.
16.80, 17.50, 18.57, (14.78), 19.02, 17.05, 19.12, 18.71, 16.58, 19.41, (21.56), 18.28= 18.10 (!!!)
Idk what happened, I haven't been cubing at all, I just thought I'd try the scrambles. I was just... in the zone o_O.
This also consisted of an average of 5: 17.62.... I...
