I love slow turning videos, especially when it really is slow turning (not what Faz thinks slow turning is)...
But this is a bit too fast for my liking. Still, great average.

Thanks; Yeah I enjoy watching slow turning videos too. Looking back, yeah, my turning was just a notch too fast... Oh well.

Yup, lol, Felik's slow turning is crazy fast :O

I really don't know... A wild guess maybe two months? Maybe shorter or longer?
It's hard to tell unless I have been monitoring my progress on a graph. And I stopped doing that 3 months ago :/

However, I'm excited about when I average 12-13 consistently... Then I'll actually be considered fast... especially as a rouxer :D

Thanks!
I have always thought of myself as a slow turner though heh.

Yes, try slow turning... Really calm. You will automatically look ahead as you will have this 'urge' to do just as well as turning fast despite your slow turn speed.
That's what happened to me at least :)

Yes it is quite a fair bit slower.
Check my normal solves. Especially the mooing.
Oh and the second block. I turn a fair bit faster normally.


I like that I can actually SEE the turns you're making! :p Most (even slow turning) speedcubing videos move too fast for me to know what they're doing.

Nice to see you're a sub-15 Rouxer!
Heh, same for me actually! That's why I like watching slow solves...
And yeah... Sub-15 Roux is something I'm pretty proud of dare I say, although it's just the beginning of mastering the method. (well that's what they all say ;))
