what's a good website for OH?
also i sent a friend request on nitro type :)
cstimer.net is definitely my go to for OH improvement. I spend so much time on that website.

Oh boy, I haven't active been on nitrotype in a really long time. I'll have to log back in and see what kind of dumpster fire this next season is gonna turn out to be.

I got the wrm21 this past week - I already posted some excellent OH videos in my other thread. It's quite good, and I've fully set it up. I got the maglev kit so I swapped out the springs for the ring magnets and left the elasticity adjuster at 0 clicks. I originally thought that 1 meant the lowest setting for the edge magnets but apparently it means strongest - so I changed that up to 4. I might go to 5 but I like how it feels at the moment. I put a fair amount of weight 5 in the tracks and a bit on the pieces, although the cube didn't slow down much. That's it so far. I'll add weight 5 or dnm/maru/silk as I see fit.

Here are two great th singles I got on sunday:
I also recorded a 13.5 OH ao25 which isn't great, but it's stackmat so I want to get it out. I'll upload that and post it to my other thread soon.

PB ao12
Sometimes, sub9 just feels so free. If my eoline is okay and I can find my pairs, I'll finish F2L at low6. Apparently, that puts me at a mid 2 recog+exc ZBLL, but I'll have to record and recon some solves to make sure it's true. I doubt it is on the whole, but since this was a PB then it that might have been why.

I've got a comp with 3 rounds of 3x3 in about a month and a half. Finals is top 12, which looks like mid8. I don't think I'll be able to get there, but I'll obviously make second round. With consistent practice, sub9 is definitely possible. I just need to keep working on getting more comfortable with stackmat.

Exciting news. Hope you get to the times you want before comp.

not the worst place i could be after a few months of not touching oh

As many of you may know, I recently broke the sub10 barrier officially. I've been capable of this for almost a year now, so it's very rewarding to finally be able to get that result cemented into the wca database. I've got another comp in about a month and then one more later this summer, which should have OH. So now I'm in the process of preparing for more 3x3 at this next comp but also derusting and getting into sub13 shape for the other competition.

I believe UNO has a competition with OH about a month before my competition with OH, so it looks like I may have lost my race to the OH WR. Well, it's certainly been a journey, and I'm excited to see where I can go beyond record chasing. My goal for 3x3 is to dip under that future 8.65 OH NAR. Hopefully can get a consistent 3x3 and OH practice schedule to keep that improvement coming.
