Hi there, firstly I am 56! So not sure how far off the oldest member I am? Ha ha.
I started cubing back in the 80s (in the UK) when it all kicked off. Went quiet for a few years, but got back in to it in 2015. What with YT etc. I finally learnt how to complete the 4x4. Ditched simple method and learned cfop (2 look, plus a few extra algs), on 3x3 obviously.
Current PB is 21s on 3x3, Ave over 500 is 36s, which is more I indicative of my level. I really like solving all the cubic puzzles, 2x2 - 15x15, although I do have a square1 too.
Looking forward to checking in here occasionally. I am also thinking of doing a competition maybe?
Cheers from NZ....

Actually, you’ll be happy to hear that you aren’t the oldest user here, and there’s a thread for older cubers. (I can’t really say anything and don’t r/woooosh me please guys). Also gl with getting sub-30, that seems like your next big goal.

What cube do you use?

Ha ha, do we know the age of the oldest cuber on here?

Yes, I'd be very happy with sub 30 over a large number of solves.

I have a number of cubes I use. My ex-main 3x3 was a 354M, now have a 356M, which I really like. I like the satin finish now, at first I wasn't sure. I also have a Valk power M and have recently bought a second hand GTS3M, which is quite 'clacky' (new word??), but I really like it. I also recently bought a Little Magic M 3x3 which I'm very impressed with for a budget cube, once lubed, as it's very sandy ootb. Mine was anyway.
Larger cubes I have are Little Magic 5 and 7. Mini WuQue 4x4. XMan 6x6. 8 to 12 are all Moyu mf's, plus the Moyu 15.

I also still have a range of original 80s cubes and shape mods and have recently been buying a few early cubes on Ebay and a similar site here in NZ, purely from a collection perspective.

Cheers.
