During inspection, plan your entire cross for one side. You can also improve your accuracy with some simple drills. Drill each hour amount turns in a single motion for each clock/pin. So for example, on just the top right corner clock, do 5 turns from 12-1 and back. Then do 5 from 12-2 and back in a single motion. Don’t do 2 individual hour turns. And repeat until the 6 o clock. Maybe seven. Then move to the next corner clock and repeat.What advanced clock tutorial do you recommend ? Like if there aren't any other methods, I'd like some advanced tips.
It does not have inserts, it is also a little smaller than the Shengshou/lingao so inserts from those won't work. if you wanted to make some you could use Gimp or a similar photo editor to edit the link down below to your liking, that is what I did for my shengshou.From some things I've seen, the Qiyi Clock doesn't have inserts. Is this true? If it does have inserts, how would I go about getting custom ones?
I can't find a good image editing program. Do you know of one that works on a Chromebook?It does not have inserts, it is also a little smaller than the Shengshou/lingao so inserts from those won't work. if you wanted to make some you could use Gimp or a similar photo editor to edit the link down below to your liking, that is what I did for my shengshou.
Ehh I don’t see it being better than Pochman because:I was thinking of a new method for clock. It is very similar to Pochman but it seems like it might have better lookahead/fingertricks.
The first step is to solve a cross just like the first step in Pochman.
The next step is flip the clock over and align the center with 2 edges. For my pin order this would be matching the center to the top and right edges.
Step 3 is to solve the corner that is in between the 2 edges aligned with the center, so kind of like a 2x2 block. The way I do this is by keeping the UL pin up and pushing DR up to align the edges with the corner, (for my pin order).
Step 4 is matching the 2x2 block to the bottom edge. (for my pin order)
Step 5 is to match up the 3 edges and one corner with the bottom left corner. I do this the exact same as I do in step 3.
Step 6 is to match up the "2x3" with the edge, and then to the remaining corners.
The pros I can think of for this method are:
The con I can see with this method is having to push down 2 pins and 1 up twice during the solves (after steps 3 and 5)
- You only have to look at either the right of the left side of the clock during the second side because you are solving all the pieces on the right and then on the left. This makes lookahead easier.
- In steps 3 and 5 you are turning the same gear twice in a row which means you don't have to regrip like you would if you were switching moves.
Let me know what you guys think of this!
Alright thanks. It would actually be going from 1 to 2 though not 1 to 3.Ehh I don’t see it being better than Pochman because:
You wouldn’t be able to plan as much in inspection
You have to put up and down a lot of pins when doing the second side, because you would have to go from 1 to 3 to 1 to 3 etc...
I’ve come up with the idea before, and it’s the same movecount as pochman, but pochman has way better flow, lookahead, and finger tricks.
A pin order is the order that you move the pins and turn the dials when solving. Most people use Stefan Pochmann’s pin order, which is what is shown in most Youtube tutorials.what is pin order? I am new to clock and cant understand what this means
If you don’t already:I avg 11 with pochmann pin order and y2s stuck on 11 for some time what should i do?
I dont do any of those lol ill start doing that then!If you don’t already:
- Learn how to solve lucky cases
- Learn how to start the solve from any angle to use more lucky cases (12 o’clock on any side)
- Learn how to do x2s and corner flips so you can solve a lucky case on the front and the back, and face the correct way when you flip.
- Default to doing an x2 if you aren’t doing anything special.
- Try to turn fast but still accurately
