F2l I can solve fast and PLL, but sometimes I get stuck on the OLL and Cross. My practise is just solving it. Maybe I should try Belt method or ZZ ?
Don't try to switch method now. I'd say just keep practicing your F2L and OLL if you get stuck. Also, see if some of the algs you use are the best they can be. I often see with people averaging what you average is that they use very bad algs for some easy cases

Recently I've been finding that my times are inconsistent. I'll get a sub-10, then a 16, then a ten, then a 13. It's very frustrating since I'm trying to improve, and it's making me question whether or not I'm really sub-12 globally. Does anybody else have this problem and have some sort of solution?

I posted something like this (with a bit more detail but whatever) and I got one reply saying to practice however i had the mindset, I will keep practising but I want to know a better way to practise or what algs should I learn. Practice is all you need and if you really want to do something else Maybe learn COLL or something.


I would also like to know if you use 4 look Last layer or not. What cube do you use? I would just like to have a bit more detail.

What is the breakdown of your solves on average? What about move count? Going from 30 to 20 sec is typically about reducing move count by solving more efficiently, and reducing pauses by going slower but looking ahead better. If you give a breakdown of your solves and/or a video we can help suggest more stuff.

Hi, I just wanted to ask for advice on being sub 10 because I've been at the 10-second mark for about 2 months. I have some solves posted on my channel and if you could look at them, that would be great. I also have an ongoing series called, "3x3 Progression". I will link the playlist and videos for that, it would be very helpful if you could give concise advice, not just look ahead.

Thanks,
MC :)

I solve the cube in 23 sec. I do have notes on different algorithms, but I don't know, I have a feeling that there are some algorithms that still have to learn. Any suggestions? specially on F2L?

Hi, I first learnt how to solve the Rubik's cube with the beginners method and averaged around 1min with a pb of 40 seconds.
I have recently learned f2l (not advanced though) and 4 look last layer.
I was wondering what are some good ways to improve and get to sub30.

Hi there! 4-Look Last Layer will be fine until you hit the sub-15 or sub-20 area, as for now you should be focusing on F2L efficiency (meaning finding solutions with fewer moves for as many F2L cases as possible )and planning your whole cross during the inspection. Watch this vid if you're confused.
, hope I helped u enough

I'm a cuber that averages around 14-16. Can anyone give me some tips to get sub 14? I know full well and almost full oll. I'm quite efficient on f2l. I need to find ways to finger trick faster or anything like that. Links will help as well.
