I blew myself away with a sub-25 Ao10 for 3x3, colour-neutral only (no white or yellow crosses). I thought I was still averaging 30 seconds, and I sat down and did a very casual 24.55 Ao10. I've decided that I'm going to be fully colour-neutral from now on. I'll have to sacrifice breaking the sub-20 barrier sooner, but I think it'll be worth it.

That's awesome!
Some people say switching to colour neutrality isn't worth it, but if you're having this much fun with it then it must be
I did a switch from white to CN when I was about the same speed as you. Good luck!

I'm a CFOP solver so it was instinctive for me to shove the cross edge in first... came up with good results actually.
12 move F2L + commutator + conjugated commutator
it's almost like im doing FMC.

In fact it's even better than that 35 HTM FMC solve I tried to do, this one is 33 HTM.

New 2x2 PB's : 2.15 avg 100, 2.07 avg 50, 1.64 avg 12 and 1.41 avg 5 ( the avg of 5 I am not sure of though cuz I think I might have a sub 1.4 already)

Haha, I've been trying to switch for a fairly long time now (Mostly with 2 gen scramble practice, and only actual full solves with pinky like a month or so ago). Decided to post about it now considering how close I really am at this point, since my PB avg100 with ring is like 1.5x faster.

My best mean of 3 is still slower than my avg5, thanks to that 3rd solve.

while we're on the topic of clock, 6.89 PB stackmatted ao50 and 6.52 near miss ao12...
got to ~80 solves and then my accuracy wavered too much and i got too many DNF's to get a decent ao100
