Congrats! Big cubes are a lot of fun...whats next? Getting larger than 9x9 I think you get into the “not so fun to solve on a single sitting” scenario
It wasn't a single sitting anyway, I had a meal after finishing the centres, incidentally using far more than the recommended 'dose' of commutators. ;)

So excited I got my first sub-20 single today!


Also a PB a05 (24.91) and ao12 (26.68), although this single wasn't in those.

Was using my GAN 356 M for most of today's solves, but switched to my RS3 M 2020 before I got my PB single.

Nice! I actually have quite similar PBs to you.

ao50: 12.016 → 11.963
ao100: 12.332 → 12.137
ao200: 12.494 → 12.364
ao500: 12.6x → 12.613 (I don't track this, but csTimer says I got a PB at some point)

Old PBs were mostly from July or earlier. It's been a while since I got good solves.
