Solution:
L R2 // Half a belt (i don't even know what i'm doing here)
D B' R B R' B' U2 // Partial xxcross
L B' L' F' R2 F // Insert cross edges
U B' D B U' // Third pair (heyhole)

Again, huge thanks to @Panagiotis Christopoulos for genning the shortest movecount PLLs!! I would love it if you did shortest movecount OLL as well :)

Also I'm done with my finals, so I would have loads of time over the summer to play and cube.

Oh my god! You used my shortest movecount PLL in comp? Yo, i would love to be friends. Hit me up whenever u want to. Also since now schools closed, im gonna have more time trying to figure out the low movecount OLL as well!

6.490 and 7.525 single I got yesterday:

6.490:
F2 R2 F2 D2 L2 D F2 D2 L2 U L D' U2 F2 L2 D R' B' D2 L2

z2 y // inspection
R2 L' B' L2 // xcross (I saw that if I do a L', the OG pair is completed)
U' R' U R U2 R' U R // second pair
R U' R' // third pair
U L U' L' U L U L' // fourth pair (OLL skip :eek:)
M' U' M2 U' M2 U' M' U2 M2 // PLL

32 STM in 6.490 sec // 4.93 tps (slow)

7.525:
F2 D2 F2 U' F2 R2 D U' L2 B' R' B' U2 B R2 F2 R' U2 B' D2

z2 // inspection
L2 U' R' F // cross
R' U R U' R U R' // first and second pairs
D L' U' L U L' U' L D' // third pair (yellow cross was completed, so I know that BR edge is in the back. I hate that F2L case so I used keyhole to put it in)
U L' U' L // fourth pair
R U2 R' U' R U R' U' R U' R' // OLL
U' R U R' U R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U2 R U' R' // PLL

57 STM in 7.525 sec // 7.57 tps (woaj)

I kinda want to get the GTS3 M, does anyone know if that cube is great or no? Tymon used it before Gan 11m Pro came out so I was wondering if I could give it a try. Gan 12 maglev is great, but sometimes has lockups.
Tymon used the wr m, the GTS 3 is the prior version. Personally I like the GTS 3 more because of the large size and strong magnets, but they are very similar.
