I think there should be some sort of initiative to create a new FTO for speedsolving, seeing as it is one of the most popular non-WCA puzzles to speedsolve, but has some of the worst hardware, as well as being difficult to mod correctly. some of the ideas i have are
  • a lighter spider core design
  • some sort of wings on the innermost triangle pieces to prevent pops
  • maybe some sort of magnet system if possible to fit it in the puzzle

any ideas on how to start designing something like this?

People are already designing and printing their own FTOs but yes, the RexTO is quite good and simple to mod from what I’ve heard. I should order one myself

I've only seen it discussed on the FTO discord so I guess it's not that widely publicized outside of there
