About to leave for a big (noncubing) competition, so I probably won't really be cubing much this week.
I was able to get a valk 4, which leaves me with only the valk power needed to finish my collection.
I was actually really surprised by the cube though. It's a great size, has great shades, and is very fast. The feeling is unparalleled, it's by far the smoothest 4x4 I've ever felt. It's also very quiet, and while corner cutting isn't great yet, for some reason I don't really lock up much. I'm considering grinding 4x4 for a bit to break it in, but we'll see.

A vegas comp got announced finally!
The events are
3x3, OH, Blind, Square 1, 2x2, and Skewb.
I'm going to focus mostly on grinding the 3x3 events, and my goals are as follows:
2x2: I don't really care that much, but if the scrambles are ok a sub 3 avg and sub 2 single
3x3: Sub 10 average, low 8/sub 8 single
3x3 OH: Low 20/sub 20 average, depending on how much I practice
3x3 BLD: Get a mean
Squan: Sub 20 avg, 17 single
Skewb: Sub 7 avg, sub 5 single

Good luck, I hope that I can go to this comp, but it being right on New Years might be an issue.
