8.12, 7.83+2, 7.38, 6.77, 8.04

There is no video of the first solve.
Cube: Gans (Gan357) The guy who manufactures the cube took the video. Thanks for that! Also thanks to James Molloy for lending me the cube and then giving it to me afterwards!

This is actually really good for me. The reason why I have this expression :/ throughout the average is because of the second solve which was a classic Cornelius. It should have been a sub-7 solve which would have made it a ~7.4 European record average. LL was an easy ZBLL case.
After the 7.38 solve James said "I'm so sad for you" haha.
But I've said this before, I won't complain. I'm honestly really happy I got sub-8 average at last (three even!) and the German record back.
Ranked 5th at the world and third in Europe.

tl;dr I'm happy about this. :)

Forgot to say - really good average.
I'm interested in this cube for a long time now.
Cornelius what do you think about this cube?

Thanks for the nice words!

Yeah, the cube is really good. It's my main right now. I used an Aolong for the first two rounds and a Gans in the final.
The Gans is really fast and has beautiful corner cutting. I put shock oil in it which made it even better.
The Aolong is also really, really good. It's like an F2 without the flaws of an F2. Put some Maru in it and it's beautiful.

As for the "no reaction" thing, itwas just because I realised I could have had a counting 6 if I had finished that 7.83+2 properly. But like I said, I'm actually very happy with this.
