Sorry guys, made a mistake. My bro did a bad scramble so I guess can't count that as my PB. Hope you all can forgive, :(
It's no problem, I'd recommend using computer-generated scrambles though. Also, don't be afraid to call a lucky solve your PB. As long as it isn't a hand scramble, you can definitely call a lucky solve your best.

Thanks to a brand new Valk Elite…
Or really, I just wasn't getting good times on the Valk Elite at all, despite having done like 500+ solves on it on various settings. So on a whim I core-swapped it with my old Valk M (you can't mix corners/edges from the two cubes because they don't perfectly fit, but the centres are similar enough) and it turns out Valk Elite core (green springs) + Valk pieces works pretty interestingly. (The other combination, Valk core + Valk Elite pieces, is very unremarkable.)

It's fast and still barely stable enough to be usable!

OMG, i'm so happy right know!


I started practice 4x4 2 months ago. I had a horrible cheap cube that lock up all the time, my hands were quickly tired. I did 700 solves on it and my global average was 1min30s. Today arrived my YongJun YuSu V2 Magnetic (that I ordered 2 months ago), and I got my PB on the second solve, and now my average is 1min15s. Look how much difference! 15 seconds is too much!!

I am impressed how easy it turns, and how smooth. And next week will probably arrive my AoSu GTS2M, and it will be even better. I'm very happy and confident now

My advice: save some money and buy i good cube. :)

4x4 -> 57.54 seconds.

First sub-1min single!! My PB was 1:05:21, a huge improvement,


No OLL and no PLL parity,
Smooth solve
Excelent look ahead in the edge paring step,
1-look OLL
H perm PLL


I'm focusing a lot on 4x4 and I stopped practing 3x3 in the last days.

Just got an insane solve! It wasn't a PB, but it was very close but the real insane part of it was how creative I can get with my F2L solutions!

Recon: U2 F L2 F L2 U2 F R2 F R2 B2 U2 L F D B2 U' R2 D' B'
y' L' U2 B2 U2 L2 F' L' // Big Chunk (7)
y U M' U' r' U2 R U2 R' U R // All of F2L (17)
F R' F' R U R U' R' // OLLCP (25)
y' M2 U' M U2 M' U' M2 // U-Perm (32)

It ended up being 10.70 (and just for reference I average ~17), which was kinda lame as it was an overall really slow and clunky solve, but I'm still happy with it! Only 1.1 seconds away from PB and a very creative solution!

I've been very out of practice with clock, so this average was really uplifting to get. Turns out I can still do it!

This was surrounded by a bunch of mediocre solves, so getting it was a big shock. Old PB was 6.17, beat that by .35 seconds. 6.19 TPS, which is pretty solid, even though most of that was a J-perm.
