Squan is a nice event. Not many people are that good at it. Therefore, i want to be really good at it. I average around 17-18. My pb is a lucky 8.04, and my main is the mgc sq-1. My goal for the end of year is sub 15, maybe sub-12. I managed to get my current average just by doing many solves, but now i think i need to work on something different to get better. Any tips?

not a squan expert by any means but learning scallop/kite cubeshape might help?

Ok! How should i get started with that?
The process most people use is similar to learning cube shape. You just learn all the cases that are like 2-4 slices away and reduce into them from cases you don’t know and eventually will learn the best way.

Have you tried the square-2 puzzle?

I doubt anyone has tried speedsolving a square-2.
True, I think it's mostly because the only readily available Square-2 is the Calvins Puzzle one - there is none I know of with a sherical core.
It's fun tho, a lot of things you don't think about with squan.
I've gone up to Square-4 in a simulator.
