Another. 10. Pointer. My 5th one and my 4th 13/16. Its getting really tempting to try and do more cubes to get a better pb but id like to get good at 3 style before i add cubes

PB finally! Very happy with this and a good last mbld before comp. Speed is nothing special but I’m not too worried about that. DNFs were a one mover on the 3bld cube and recalling HK instead of HC. I decided to upload this one to youtube

I decided to do a very large multi-bld that I know I couldn't possibly subhour. I asked a bunch of people to pick a number between 21 and 42. Then worked out the average of that. It came to 33 cubes. So here it is: 33 Cubes Multi-BLD Attempt
The accuracy on this is insane. I am really surprised.
Errors:
Cube 1: some exec like usual, 5e; Cube 5: did a 2 swap and inserted it back wrong way; Cube 6: did edge parity alg wrong way. 3e; Cube 9: recalled IP and HO wrong way round

New PB Single, by time!
17/18 in 43:33[28:38] beating a 16/16 in 46:02[30:20]
Quite happy. The only error I had made was messing up the comm [U, L' E L] by doing the U and then somehow going into another, but similar comm and yeah, I kinda knew I made a mistake but wasn't sure what I had to do to fix it so yeah.
Still undecisive about the amount I should do for my upcoming competition in October, all I need is 11+ points to break AfR. Probably not going to do anything lower than 18.

My pb is 5/5 in 26:10
I know I could easily get a 9 cube attempt sub hour but I haven't anything good with 9 yet
6/9 49:52
5/9 46:30
5/9 48:27
I also have tried 6, and 7 but not 8 yet so I will try that in the near future
My top 3 MBLD:
5/5 26:10
6/7 38:52
5/6 30:13

Heyo everyone, I need a bit of advice on multibld hardware...

Currently I own 25 x MF3RS1. I average 1:05-1:10 on 3bld and I could say I average 11 points on multi. I do 20 cube attempts in about 50 minutes. I execute about 53s per cube during multi, but can be pushed to high/mid 40s. I strive to be one of the best multi-blinders within the next 2-3 years in the world. My main for 3bld is currently gts1/meilong. I know full 3 style corners (recently finished learning all) and use Orozco for edges. Planning on finishing edges 3 style this year, or Jan 2020. I prefer cubes for blind that do not corner twist AT ALL(my mf3rs dont corner twist) and they mustn't be too loose.

Question: What cube would you suggest I purchase? I do not have a limitless budget, but I can spend up to 100USD if it is neccessary... I do not think I yet need main worthy cubes like mf3rs3s or something heavy like that, but It could be considered and I could start purchasing such cubes, and eventually get off of my mf3rs's.
I own a YLM, Meilong, MF3RS, MF3RS2 and between them I do not know which is the best. The meilong is the cheapest and I do very much like it, but I do not think it could serve as a good cube in the future. The YLM's I've come across all corner twist too easily for my liking.. The MF3RS is very good for my current stage in multibld, as meilong would be, but already lockups are forming from my increasing TPS and E/S moves during edges. The MF3RS2 is a good cube, but I've had corner twists on it also a few times. Price is also a factor. 1 MF3RS = 3.6USD whilst 1 MF3RS2 = 6USD (cubezz.com) which makes a big difference once you raise the number of cubes..

Ultimately, I do not know if purchasing another 20-25 MF3RS in total is a good idea, when I will probably need to upgrade at some point when I get too fast for them. Also, having a mixture of cubes will probably throw me off, partly why I don't want to start buying Meilongs now and using them with my MF3RS's.

Any opinions are encouraged, I would like to hear what you think about the situation. Thanks

meilong+light magnets. costs about 60 from zcube for cubes and then another 30-40 for magnets. Takes a while, but magnetic meilong are the best.

18/19 Multi-Blind Personal Best!
52:12[35:06]
Must admit that this was very slow, more so on memo I believe. Hopefully it is because I'm just tired after a long day back at school. My goal was just to get a result better than AfR so.. goal achieved . The accuracy is pretty cool though, since I was using quite a lot of comms, not 100% confident though and not using all my corner comms just yet. The error, not surprisingly, was leaving out the last two moves of UFR-FRD-DBL with a kinda complicated r2/U/D move set (not really complicated but yeh), because I got confused with a similar comm I learned only 5 days ago and executed 2 cubes back.. So yeah, pretty happy that my memo accuracy is also good, even if it was slower. Made one memo error but for some reason just knew it wasn't that piece and knew exactly that it was DBL instead of DBR.

i thought maybe around 40 cubes. Also, big GJ on multi PB! do you think you’ll be prepped enough for your next comp?

Woah, a lot of cubes, but yeah I saw that even 36 cubes aren't that expensive, because by then it is 0.92 USD per cube which is insane lol. Where do I get magnets? (sorry I've never dealt with magnetization) and is zcube very trustworthy?

Thx! I hope I am ready. I think I will do 19 cubes, maybe 20. I just need to stay calm and focused through the event, especially during execution, since I make most of my errors there..

yes, zcube is very trustworthy. I have ordered with them 3 times and I have had great service each time. Shipping is a bit expensive tho. I would buy magnets from omomagnets for cheapness: http://www.omomagnets.com/index.php?controller=omoproduct&id_product=1401 or http://www.omomagnets.com/index.php?controller=omoproduct&id_product=833 depending on what magnet strength you prefer. N35 is substantially weaker than the N52 but are both good.

I second using zcube for the cubes, and you can find magnets for very cheap on ebay.
1000 4x2 n35 magnets for $13.63 USD (for 40 cubes you would need 1920 magnets) 4x2 n35 are a good strength and size in the meilong. #### ImmolatedMarmoset ##### Member I second using zcube for the cubes, and you can find magnets for very cheap on ebay. 1000 4x2 n35 magnets for$13.63 USD (for 40 cubes you would need 1920 magnets)

problem is that’s not reliable. often those magnets will be 1.6 or 1.7 by 4 and you don’t know what you’re getting.

Also, shipping 40 meilongs to South Africa is 52usd so.. but yeah, still 30 usd cheaper than no shipping on cubezz

either way, they would still be good in the meilong

18/20 Multi-Blind in 57:24[38:37] (PB5 atm)
Slow as heck but it is pretty late and I was exhausted even before starting. Seeing as I had so little time left, I might not do 20 for comp.. maybe 19. Memo for this attempt is pretty bad, almost 2 minutes a cube, but I was using my less used rooms so I can be a little forgiving. Exec is meh, should've been a bit faster but whatever. Hopefully going to do another attempt tomorrow morning and I'll post if it worthy of being posted.
