So, I've been practising two methods lately.

The first four solves were just really easy for me. The blocks just kinda suited my style. I'm still really inconsistent with roux because I fail a lot.
I'm not quite of my global average, but my avg12s usually land in the 10.5 - 11.5 range.

My current avg12 PB is 10.41. I'm aiming for sub 10.

Average of 12: 10.65

Tips would be very helpful :)

Great solves! You have a really cool turning style.
Would you mind telling me how you do M moves because I can't tell from the video.

I do all of my Ms with my right hand
M2: ring then middle finger push on BD
M': middle/ring finger push on BD
M: ring finger/middle push on DB (sometimes r'R)

Great solves! Not much I can do to give you tips. I'm just curious, do you see your whole first block during every inspection? A few of your inspections were really short.
Sometimes I'm too lazy to track all of the pieces. I'm working on that right now.

Me too.... I'm trying to figure out the best way to drill it. I always forget when I'm just goofing around. I think I just need to force myself to practice every solve, no matter how long the inspection is.
I feel the same way about my first pair with CFOP. I can almost always do it in the 15 seconds, but If I see it's going to be a little difficult, I'll just give up. It's the same with 2x2, but I'm not as consistent when I do try.
