I am an growing speedcuber at sub 25s , trying to break into color neutrality...
I average inconsistently...and have my average near 25 sec... mostly white and yellow cross solves ...my pb is 17sec... trying to improve desperately.

Any suggestions and tricks and usefull stuff please let me know....
Thanks for accepting me in your speedcubing community.. :)

One important trick for fast CFOP solves is efficient F2L. Some cases are faster to solve but are not intuitive. Many beginners actually drop the better algs for slower but easier algs. It is okay for 30-40 seconds stage but matter as your time decreases.
By being colour-neutral, one can save only about 2-3 moves in the cross-process. Dual colour neutrality is sufficient even for sub-8 solvers.

terrible advice

Being color neutral makes you get 6 time more lucky scrambles and 6 times less unlucky scrambles, it makes you times more consistent, and it is easier to plan x crosses and cross +1 in inspection because the crosses are easier.

Pretty much good advice

Awful advice. Are you even color neutral yourself? Also have you not looked at stats? Let me explain:

CN crosses actually only save about 1-1.7 moves on average, but that number is misleading, as that one less move can be the difference between being able to plan out your entire cross to being able to plan out cross+1.(or 3/4 of a cross to a full cross). Plus, as Owen Morrison said, there will be scrambles that are awful for white or white & yellow but on a different color have a decent cross. The current WR was on red cross, and if he wasn't CN our WR wouldn't be sub-4. Some WR scrambles are great for CN but bad for white, which for a sub-8 solver could mean the difference between WR and the worst solve of an average.

Welcome! What method do you use and what other events do you do?
I am a CFOP solver and solve pretty every other official wca puzzles minus 7×7, 6×6
,Clock , pyramix and blind events ....and I also solve mirror blocks, Mastermorphix, axis cube and gear cube...
