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.

Hooray! Speedcubedb works for me again! (the font is a bit weird and loading is slow but its great to use it again)

PB ao5!! First day of the holidays, I'm just pushing myself to look-ahead better by tracking pieces.

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!

Is there a place where you can practice FMC? Also why do all FMC scrambles start and end with R' U' F??

I think it's so they can be different from 3x3 scrambles. Can't you practice FMC with csTimer?

Well you sort of can, but I want a website that is sort of like the FMC comp on here, but infinite scrambles. CStimer doesn't have FMC sadly

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.

Very crunchy and uncontrollable and dry at the start, but lube it and tighten it and it is great. My only complaint is that it is still a bit uncontrollable. If you don’t have lube, try and get it pre-lubed.

So if I want to buy one, should I buy the Pro Shop version?

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 )
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)

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.

So I was trying out @NigelTheCuber's anti EG-1 when I come across EG-1 cases I know, and I got 2 almost exactly same scrambles in the space of FOUR solves.
U2 F' U R U R2 U' F2 U2
and
F U F' R F' R2 U' R' F'
I did NOT have the EG-1 filter turned on.

Both using anti-EG1, I got both 1.8xx
