I agree with Marcel - AoLong v2/v1 or WeiLong v2. I don't like the feel of the WeiLong v1 so much.

Formula is apparently a rebranded SuLong. Marcel, have you compared the pieces?
How is the feel of Weilong v2 different from v1? (I don't have a v2, only v1.)

Oh yeah, and new PB Ao50=13.79 (new PBs on 3x3 come so infrequent these days I thought I would post it.)
12.95, 15.16, 16.28, 13.97, 13.57, 12.74, 12.84, 13.93, 12.26, (11.76), 13.67, 13.64, (16.54), 13.81, 14.00, (11.86), 13.61, 15.72, 12.37, 12.73, 14.07, 14.50, (16.67), 14.02, 14.65, 15.58, 13.29, 15.72, 13.41, 15.50, (16.90), (11.46), 13.21, 14.36, 13.96, 14.03, 12.09, 14.62, 14.12, 13.15, 15.95, 12.85, 12.82, 14.21, 12.39, 13.09, 13.02, 12.08, 14.47, 12.46

11.0+: 1
11.5+: 2
12.0+: 6
12.5+: 6
13.0+: 6
13.5+: 8
14.0+: 8
14.5+: 3
15.0+: 1
15.5+: 5
16.0+: 1
16.5+: 3

Congrats on the PB!

V2 feels slightly smoother and easier to control, to me. Of course, it could just be my cubes - I know v1/v2 are virtually the same pieces.

My v1 is a very early one with the older Moyu stickers (dull orange) and the small logo.

No, it is not just your cube. All my V2's are smoother in a sence that they can handle rough scrambling without lockups, And they are a bit slower so that they do not overshoot. I can handle V2's way better. But V1's are awesome for Roux. M slice are great and fast.

Congrats on the PB's Melody. I am hesitant to go back to CFOP for a little while and see some fast times again.. But I am not.. LOL..

Hi all again, I wish you also a good new year, even though it's a bit late...


LOL.. I do not even have 8X8..
You should buy one, and the 9x9 and 10x10. They are fun.

A few days ago I registered for an event in Switzerland called 'Q'd 13'. It's like an inofficial 13x13 competition the day before the Swiss Nationals 2015.
You will have to solve the 13x13 and then you have the possibility to buy the solved cube for cheap (well, cheaper than the original price).
Therefore I started to do mor big cubes. I also timed 7x7 solves for the first time. First solve 18:50.20, second solve 16:48.09. I wonder how long it takes to get to sub 15 mins...


@Everybody
I might buy a new cube this year, but what to choose? What is your favorite 3x3x3 cube right now?
My favorite at the moment is the AoLong V2. But I also kind of like the V1 and the WeiLong V2, like some other here.
I also didn't like the WeiLong V1 when it came out, it even took me very long to get the V2 because of this. Before I got the WeiLong V2 and the AoLongs, I liked the SuLong very much.

I wonder how many of us oldies are programmers?
Yup, me too, old and programmer.

Wow, I like that pic.

As Gordon, I'm getting a bit into big cubes also, I started to practice 5x because I wanted to break in the AoChuang for 5bld, and now that I am around 3:30 I'm starting to really like the event, I also find me wanting to check how my Times are in bigger cubes, but I can still control that desire .

I have an objective for this year, Spanish top 100 for as many events as I can. Most are easy, but some are going to be really hard for me

But there is a slight difference in centers. It should not affect solving though. I do not know what makes the big difference.
Ah well, guess I will just buy a Formula cube then :D. Do you also have a Rephael? The same sources said that was just a YuLong but I wonder, perhaps it is different too. Same goes for Bullfight/Phoenix.

Yeah, you can't go wrong for 4 dollar ;) No, I do not have the Rephael. I am no big fan of the YuLong. YuLong is great, but too fast for me. And yes, Phoenix is 100% same cube as Bullfight. That is really an amazing cube. They have it in black now. I hope the QiYi Bullfight will also come in black soon.
Such awesome cube names. I wish I could try all these cubes without having to buy them...
Yeah, great names. Only a shame they sell it in North america only.

What do you think I should focus on next?

2x2 - learn CLL
3x3 - aiming for sub-25 OH (I think I average about 26ish)
4x4 - aiming for sub-1 (I'm about 1:08ish)

I can't decide. Since time is limited, I can't do everything at the same time. I would probably keep doing some normal 3x3 solves each week to at least maintain my times but want to focus on one other thing for maybe 2-4 weeks before working on something else. If I do 3x3 OH I was thinking I would do the 4219.5 marathon with it. If 2x2 CLL I'm going to see how fast I can learn all the algs.
