This beats my old pb from yesterday by 16 seconds. I've been practicing this puzzle for about a week. Every solve took over 10 minutes usually. I've only done less than 20 solves in total. I only got my first sub 10 a few days ago.

Method: Double reduction

1. Reduce to 3x3x3 turns and 120 degrees corner turns
2. Reduce to 3x3x3
3. 3x3x3 + any parity

Building those edge triplets is so time consuming. It takes over half of my solving time easily.

If you like solving big cubes, I'd recommend trying this out. It's pretty fun despite the bad turning. It's all mostly intuitive. I don't really use any algs apart from 3x3x3 algs and parity.
