Finishing PLL is a great milestone for sure. I put down the cube for 7-8 years and the first thing i wanted to get done getting back into the hobby was finish PLL (i needed R's Ns and Gs). Especially once you start benefiting from the PLL cases yo do know getting a case you don't feels like a real bummer on your progress and consistency.Yeah, to be honest I want to finish PLL so that I don't suffer badly from the times I get one I don't know, really pushes out the time on it, and means I can't be consistent in times. But I do know I could probably gain more from cross and F2L, I'll go back to working on that in a few weeks if I manage to get another two PLLs ticked off.
What time are you down to now?
Once i finished PLL i worked on efficient cross solutions, better solutions to F2L cases, and executing the F2L cases i do know with a high turning speed. I spent alot of time internally vocalizing my F2L solutions (all algs really) and wanted to get to a point where i could recognize and execute and not necessarily think about how i need to solve the case (prepping to implement look ahead). All told this has brought me from the 30-35s range to consistently averaging 28-29s. When i get solves where everything goes right I'm getting sub-25 and alot of sub 20 solves which is awesome and rewarding. I've been cubing like a mad man with all this extra time at home due to COVID-19.
