I believe Dan Sarnelli has an 8BLD? Sorry if I butchered the spelling of his name.

must do 7BLD...must do 7BLD...
You can borrow one at a comp and try? I have a spare white V7 you can borrow at Cambridge and give back to me next time we meet, a black SS8 if you want to try 8BLD, and a black SS7 you can borrow for the weekend.

Once exams finish (my last one is tomorrow) I'll be trying to get my name on these lists.

I can't wait for Roman Strakhov to finally do the 9BLD, he's damn close.
I am also very excited for this! Is Mike attempting this also? I remember a debate about this a while ago (knockoffs and such) and I don't know the current status of this as I've been out of the loop for a while. Hopefully I'm not sparking up a flame war in this thread, I'm just curious.

This thread makes me want to try 6BLD.

I bought it quite some time ago (with 4x4 and 5x5) especially for BLD solving but have never used it.
Just tried some center comms on it and I learned this will be a huge endeavour.

I think it will take a while before I get used to all these different types of centers. Just trying to spot where they need to go makes my brain hurt.

Challenge accepted :)

Why don't they make 6,7,8,9 BLD official events?
Look at the list! There are around 20 people in the world, who solved a 6x6x6 blindfolded. It doesn't make sence to add a new event, if there are this less competitors.
Other reasons: the solves take much longer than any other events and the success rates are terrible.
