I'm definately going to do some slow solves to see if I do it in a fix routine or not, thanks for the warning :)
Hopefully I can eliminate the bad habits early on.
Good. The earlier, the better. I see using CFOP as a bad habit for me, and I now can't stop using it :( I would recommended trying to start the good habits (i.e. being y-axis neutral) early on too, but I think you should get more comfortable with EO before trying that. After you're reasonably confident with EO, try to learn y-axis neutrality, but for now don't worry about it. You have enough to do already :p

Welcome to the community. Feel free to write to me if you ever want to talk ZZ or chat generally.

Thanks :) Your tutorials are awesome btw!



Got my 100th timed solve today :eek:
In the last session I got quite a few sub 2min, and I'm happy with that since a few days ago I was around 2.5-3 min, so yay!

Wow, just got my first sub 1min (00:51.68)!
It was a super lucky case though, I'm nowhere near this yet normally.
Still wow, I'm so happy :eek:

Yeah, I got really lucky there :)

I really hope I saw right on the pics and it's a gen2 (w/ dataport), and it will work with prisma...

Just a little progress report: ~200 timed solves in my first two weeks. It seems I'm quite a slow learner, but there is some progress nonetheless :)

My stackmat&timer just arrived with the mail, and it has a data port! :)
I was a little worried, because from the pics it seemed like it has one, but it does not have save+arrow buttons like all the ones I've seen around the internet.
It's probably an older model, who knows... I'll get a cable in the next few days, and hopefully it will work with prisma. timer.jpg

youre probably not a very slow learner. sub1min in 2 weeks is pretty good and 200 solves in 2 weeks is honestly not very much. just keep it up! :)

I'm determined to keep it up since I really enjoy twisting the cube :)

I solved way more than 200, these are just the timed ones. I did lots of slow solves to practice f2l for example.
Now when I'm concentrating hard, I can usually get a 50-70s solve (pb is 44:98), so the next "big" goal is to get consistently sub 60s in two more weeks.
Hopefully I can connect the stackmat to prisma, if that happens, I'll try to do at least 50 timed solves a day.
