I see that you don't want people saying you to just practice f2l because it's not helping,

but I want to say to you to do a specific f2l drill. it helped me diminish my f2l times drastically.

watch the video

this drill will make you find flaws in your f2l solving because you'll see how you need to learn new angles and solutions to cases you solve inneficiently right now.

then try to think of better solutions or search for cases solution, maybe post here so we can help.

good luck!

i watched the video, and im trying to do less rotations, and i think i reduced my rotations a bit, and sometimes i use F moves to insert

Try sledging f2l pairs instead of inserting to decrease bad ll cases. I made a video on this, hope it will help:
i do that when i get 2 edges on the top left.

anyway, i only use 2 vhls cases, not the rest cause its not worth it.

bump: I have been practicing a little and learned some f2l cases i needed, and im already seeing some improvement. I averaged around 35, and now i did an ao12 where i got 31.90. My f2l has been a bit faster i saw, and now to break the sub 30 barrier I just have to practice a bit more on f2l and then learn full PLL, and then practice some more..


@Filipe Teixeira (sorry for the mention) my splits are cross + f2l around 20 seconds, have to get a bit faster though and more consistent. OLL is around 5 seconds (2 look) and pll is maybe 6 or 7 (2 look)


EDIT: First sub 30 ao5 AND ao12! Noice

This is a thread where i practice and learn cases and algs to get to sub 40.
Right now i learned intuitive f2l but i also need help and tips with it.

so now i have this problem where i see that before i learned intuitive f2l i had a 40 second average on f2l, so i went to learn intuitve f2l to get a lower f2l average, but now that i use intuitvte f2l my solve time is 1 minute and 30 seconds on average??
does this need more practice or i am doing it wrong?
Learn algs for some difficult f2l cases. That really pushed me ahead.

Most intuitive cases are fine as such, but cases that where pieces are stuck together takes some unnecessary moves to fix and insert without algs.

Second, work on better fingertricks. I didn't really how much I was missing by not utilizing left finger pushes.

Look at better recognition of cases, f2l /oll/pll.

You need to be able to see a case, recognize and insert it without thinking.

Make sure you can solve your cross blindfolded. Transitioning from cross to f2l also shaves off time. I'm currently working on predicting first pair better, where I'll be able to plan cross and f2l and solve the entire thing in one blow, freeing up my mind to search for my second pair. Right now I'm watching tracking my first pair while doing the cross. It's not bad, will be much better after prediction gets better.
