Got a sub-8 fullstep!!
Previous sub-8~9 solves all have skips or easy x-cross.

single: 7.851

Time List:
1. 7.851 D2 U' R2 U' F2 R2 F2 U2 L F' D' B F2 U' F2 R' F2 U2 R' U'

z2 x' // inspection
U' l' F // cross
R' D' R U' R' D R U R U' R2 D R U' R' D' R // first and second pairs
U' L U L' // third pair
U' R' U' R U R' U' R U R' U' R // fourth pair
U' F R U R' U' R U R' U' F' // OLL
R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' // PLL

60 moves in 7.851 seconds // 7.64 TPS

First and second pairs were really nice, I used the RUD commutator for first pair and I could predict where the second pair corner would be, then I used the CLS alg for that case because I didn't want to cube rotate.

I love J perms

According to Rubiks Fandom, the unofficial world record for 1x1 is 0.02 seconds.
I beat that today on cstimer with 0.007.

Time List:
1. 0.007 x' z y x y2 z' x2 y x2 y2 x2 z' y x z' x2 y2 z x y2 z y' x2 z2 y'

Next goal is to get a 0.006 single and a 0.007 average.
dang you are fast at 1x1. race to sub 0.007 average?

Yeah sure. I have ao5 0.008 and ao12 0.008 as well.
And I got really lucky on this scramble, it was really easy CFOP skip.
Finally a 0.006.

I use a 1x1 I made myself. It's a light metal cuboid with stickers I put on it. The turning is extremely smooth and fast, and the corner cutting (positive and reverse) can reach up to 360 degrees.
nice. i use a dayan transparent 1x1. its set up with weight 5 in the core and mystic, weight 3, and dnm-37 on the peices
it has some catching problems, but i use it because i love the smooth feel. its very quiet.

FIRST SUB-10 AO5!!! :)
A lot of lucky solves, and the crosses are mainly pretty easy so I could predict the next pair.
I'm not sure when I will actually be sub-10 though, might take a few months.
This average was mainly due to luck.


Anyway, here are the times and scrambles:
Generated by CubeDesk on 2022-04-10
Average of 5: 9.681

Solves:
1. 9.380 B2 D' B2 U' F2 U' F2 R2 U L2 R2 U' L F L2 D2 B' U B' D L U'
2. 8.240 F2 L2 F2 L' B2 L' F2 L F2 R B2 R U' B' R B2 L2 B' D' U B2
3. 10.056 U2 B2 L2 D2 B2 D B2 U R2 D' L2 U L' B U' R' B U2 B2 R D2 R
4. 12.330 F R L' D F L U2 R' D' R' F2 U' R2 F2 U' L2 F2 D L2 B2 U2 F2
5. 9.607 L U2 L' U' R2 D2 F D' F R U2 F2 R B2 L2 B2 L U2 D2 R' U2


Btw my mean of 411 solves is now sub-14 (13.825) :)
Dang that's fast, my best AO5 is 27.892
I know Beginner F2L, BrOLL, And 5 PLL algs
Can you help me know what I should know next
And where should I buy my cubes from/what is the best under $30 3x3
As I currently main a Qiyi Carbon Fibre, Non Magnetic cube that I got as a Bday Present

You should've posted under a help thread, but I'll answer anyway.
You should learn a bit of advanced F2L, which solves bad F2L cases without cube rotating. Learn full PLL first because it only has 21 algs, then if you are about sub-20~25, learn full OLL. OLL has 57 algs, so they are a bit hard to take in at first, so learn slowly. An alg a day would be good (and then you can try doing the alg again and again until you get really familiar with it).

For a good 3x3 under $30 (USD), the RS3M 2020 would be pretty good. If you're looking for something better, you can also choose Weilong Gts3m, it's around 36 bucks.

So guys, my three main goals are to get sub-10 3x3, sub-1 4x4, and sub-3 2x2. Can you guys take the poll on which is harder to reach, or do you guys have any suggestions on which goal I should go for first?

Definitely sub-10 3x3, as that's what I'm currently trying to achieve. Sub-1 4x4 is easy, I don't have a good cube and I'm sub-1; I have no experience with 2x2 so I cant speak for that.

I learnt yau already, but I'm slow at making the first three pairs and the last 4 centers. I average slower on yau than redux lol.

I assume you have a good cube
-Learn Half Centres
-Watch a lot of J-Perm
-Practice
oof my 4x4 is a really sucky one with lots of lockups. I'm not in a state to buy cubes either as I'm under quarantine right now, so a good 4x4 would not be here soon (I'm planning to buy an MGC).
I doo a mix of both. I do redux centers, then finish a cross, pair edges using 323 and then do 3x3 stage. Works better for me
That's a good idea, I've thought about it before. The only thing that's slower than yau is you won't have a finished cross. I guess I'll have to watch more videos on 323 because I only ever watched one video on yau so yeah. Thanks for the suggestions!
