Hey @Edward4 , I always wanted to try clock in the near future. However the clocks out there are quite expensive. Which one should i get?
Hey RDJ! Even though it‘s unfortunately quite expensive, the Qiyi is definitely the best clock on the market. The original Rubik’s brand was used by many for awhile, but it does need to be cracked open to set up. Though it’s no longer produced, you can still find some on websites like Ebay—I’ve seen them on other websites as well! There’s also the Sengso, which is a magnetized clock too. However, it feels quite flimsy and often tricky to turn.

Thanks for the recommendation, break a WR!

I've heard that some people solve clock without looking at the back side, is that actually possible?
Yes it is! No-flip methods are really difficult. You have to memorize the back edge-clocks, then solve them by using pins which are down (up on the back side). The corners are solved from there on both sides. I don’t use this method, but I’m trying to figure it out!
