If you want it for oh or bld, I would recommend the tengyun v1. Some people like the tengyun v1 for 2h (usually roux solvers) but I would recommend the wrm 2021 if you don't already have it. Nobody really uses the tengyun v2, so I wouldn't buy it.
I’m only looking for 2H. It’s good to know that the V2 isn’t worth it, especially since it’s more expensive. I’m really after the light and scratchy quick feel, which the Tengyun seems to offer.

Thank you for your advice!

Did my first recorded Ao5 on 5x5 today—got 2:35.24. Pretty happy for my first one!

UPDATE: 1:14.12 4x4 average!

What's your session mean for pyraminx? Sounds like you're as good at pyraminx as you are with clock.
My mean has been sub-5 consistently. There are a few cases I'm still working at, so I get the occasional much slower time that throws the mean off, like maybe an 8 second or something. But overall things have been going well!

Given that my courses are going to be very time consuming this coming semester, I’m going to set some longer-term goals for now. This is to just stretch them out until the end of 2022. That is, unless I find other creative ways to focus on shorter-term improvements.

These will be time ranges I’d like to primarily get by then! I hope that they’re all reasonable.


GOAL / GENERAL RANGE / PB Ao5

Pyraminx: 3.0-3.4 | ~3.9-4.8. | 3.74

Clock: 5.0-5.5. | ~5.9-6.8 | 5.84

Skewb: 4.8-5.5. | ~5.5-6.5. | 5.23

2x2: 3.7-4.2. | ~4.3-5.3. | 3.86

3x3: 16-17. | ~19.7-22. | 19.20

4x4: 50-55 | Haven’t practiced much recently | 1:14.12

Megaminx: 1:30-1:40. | ~2:05-2:10. | 2:03.95



Sorry that my table is showing up quite messy. Should be more spaces!
Megaminx... that event is calling my name.
I could help you out. I am very close to sub-1 myself.

That would be great! I’ve been getting more interested in mega recently. I don’t practice too much, but I’ve gotten my times down around 15-20 seconds in the past few months. My main goal is to be able to get a competition average! Around me, most comps seem to have a 1:40 cutoff for the most part.
