6x6+ Blindfolded Rankings Thread

Does anyone know if anyone is working on a blindfolded 10x10 or higher currently?

I had 6 failed attempts on the 10 about a year ago and have all but given up (my best attempt was my first attempt, 88% complete).

I’m considering a comeback but I know it’ll probably take me a year or more to build back up again to the big cubes. The idea of being only the 2nd person to do the 10 or even the 1st person to do the 12 is appealing, but it’s a huge undertaking.

What does everyone think?

88% complete is really nice. I think if you persist enough you will get a 10BLD success eventually.

For me, I first have to get a 8BLD success.
I agree with Jacck, at 10BLD+, we are battling the solve process and ourselves, rather than another person or rankings.
The SengSo 12x12/ Meilong 12x12 is really good, and I do not think anyone has attempted 12BLD on it. Good luck for that!

For big cubes (8x8 and above) I feel like I am battling with the cubes. The quality of the cubes isn't anywhere like 7x7 and lower. Also they aren't factory magnetized making alignment much more inconvenient when solving blindfolded. In my 8BLD attempt the cube exploded into a million pieces midsolve and I wasn't motivated to try again after that.

Its unfortunate to see explosion of a bigcube during BLD exec.

Magnetising a big cube manually does take a whole day (Graham did it on his 2nd 10x10 he got, Meilong 10x10).

Its just better to do MBLD sometimes, rather than toil on layer mistakes on 6BLD+ attempts.

This was my best 10x10 and my only 12x12 attempt (60%):D6E7B966-84D0-48EB-B23D-FEB8262A7947.jpegA7588D3B-F21A-4AC1-997D-78079CC7918D.jpeg
