Did over 400 clock solves today. Hoping it does me well! Got 3 Sub-5’s as well.
I do know 2 look OLL and a few basic ones. I’ll definitely look into further OLLs, too. I was planning to do those more in depth after PLL—would the order really matter?Learn 2 look OLL if you don't already, if you do, then learn some easy OLLs - all the OCLLs, square shapes, T shapes, OLL 37 and 51. Also learning these give you some other algs, like OLLs 41 and 42 awkward shapes are just a sune followed by a T shape algorithm.
Try reducing the pause between recognizing OLL after completing F2L, also between OLL and PLL. Maybe do an example solve, or a reconstruction of your solves and make it split time and we can see what you need to improve.
Not really. OLL can be learned pretty arbitrarily. I’m pretty sure I just learned cases as I started to recognize and distinguish them.I do know 2 look OLL and a few basic ones.

Of course! Firstly, make sure you have a good clock—the Qiyi is by far the best and will allow for the best times. Learn to use your thumbs on the bottom dials if you haven’t already. This is something which takes getting used to, but it will help you a LOT in the end. Practice getting used to certain movements—see what it feels like to do +6 or -1. This will help you perform them faster while solving!I love clock as well, I'm trying to get sub 10. Do you have any tips to get faster?
