Been practicing a lot these "safe but still sub-1" solves lately! That's the kind of solve I'll be trying to do in the first round at World's :)
Average of 12: 47.79 (σ = 4.66)
1. 45.89 F L D B2 U' L' B2 R2 B2 R D2 L2 F B2 D2 B2 D2 F R2 D2 F
2. 41.93 U' L2 B2 L2 D2 F2 D B2 F2 L' F...
A couple of points to clear up before reading these. By freestyle I don't specifically mean '3-style' or speed-optimal 3-cycles (which this does indeed use) but I mean using a range of techniques including solving from fixed and floating buffers in the same solve, using a 'pseudo fixed buffer'...
Sloxecution = no NAR but still good solve.
Scramble: R2 D' B2 R2 U R2 D' U2 B2 L D' U' B2 R U' F2 L2 R2 (8/10)
Corners: PJLOVIBF = the PaJamas are LOw on vying (VI) to be BeeF
Edges: HNWAMGECPA = HaNWA MeGECPA
x' U' M U2 M' U' x (5)

I'll eventually have all my corner cycles and edge cycles here. I'm mostly doing this for myself so that I can force myself to find my bad cycles, but I think it might be useful for other people to see as well. Feel free to tell me better or just different algs for certain cycles. I'm sorry that...
I know I have a thread for my tutorials, but this one is so special that I think it deserves it's own thread!
The tutorial is complete! Post below if you have any questions, complaints or praise!

FINALLY A SUB-1 ON CAM!

This is my second sub-1 with only one piece solved. =D
