I solve a whole range of puzzles, including the classic 3x3 cube, but since I cannot get my head around F2L (health issues affecting ability to commit to muscle memory), I mainly do bigger cubes where the 3x3 stage is relatively insignificant.

FYI my 3x3 PB is a measly 51s .
Maybe i'll just get the hang of this F2L yet! ;)

Today, for the first time, I got an f2l solve below my beginners method (well, not pure beginners, as I use 4LLL) average, at 1m18.28s. Maybe not impressive by the standards of all the speedsolvers here, but for me, it was a major accomplishment! :D

I JUST GOT AN INSANE NEW 3x3 PB!!! 16.29 Almost 4 whole seconds less!!! :eek: :cool:

This was the scramble:

Generated By csTimer+ on 2021-03-21
single: 16.29

Time List:
1. 16.29 F' R2 F R' D F' D R D' R2 B2 R' F2 L U2 L' F2 L B2

Just try the scramble to see how insane it is. Literally, it takes to moves to create an x-cross and insert a cross piece. It's insane for me... I did the x-cross, inserted the F2L pairs, then got a sune, and then a U Perm. It honestly was amazing.

First sub-10 with an N perm! (This makes the other N perm the only PLL case I haven't gotten a sub-10 single with yet, I think.)

Impressive!! :D
At first, it might seem that F2L is hard but if you keep doing solves, you'll surely get the hang of it.
