I went from storebought to Type A-I back to storebought to F-II to storebought again. The same storebought never gets lost. I was at ~29-31 seconds when I got my first DIY, but I had a friend sand down the pieces on my storebought the spring before then, went through the summer, and got a DIY then.

I got my first DIY when I was around 20s, but I still used my storebought(s) often. I actually get more sub-10 solves with storeboughts than my AV xD.

I got my first DIY not not knowing it was a DIY (Sudoku Cube) when I was averaging around 55 secs, and the first DIY I bought knowing it was a DIY was a Ghost Hand II, and I was averaging around 45 secs.

About 1 minute I think. I got a DIY 1 week after I started solving since my cube (Rubiks storebought) was terrible (I still have it and it hasn't gotten any better).
