Round 3
Race to: Sub 7 [3/3]
Cube: Moyu
Method: LBL + L4E Skills

7.61, 6.82, 5.82, 6.47, 6.78, 5.80, 5.67, 6.90, (8.40), (4.70), 7.05, 6.05 = 6.45

I'm going to come back training Pyra this week, also, I need to buy a new one, would you guys recommend the Qiyi one or the Moyu Magnetic? Also graduated to sub 6.5, because all my three averages were lower than that, so now I'm going to start racing to sub 6.

Congrats on graduating! Great job.

I would recommend the Moyu Magnetic Pyraminx, it works great!

I have both and because everybody on youtube and stuff said the Moyu was better I got the Moyu. Then used Moyu for 2 months until I went to a comp and felt the X Man and for my turning style it is 10x better but it depends on the person.

Round 4
João Santos
Method: LBL + L4E Skills
Goal: Sub 6 (1/3)
Cube: Moyu Jinzita

Times:
5.40, 5.07, (4.16), (8.37), 7.39, 5.64, 6.60, 4.79, 5.39, 7.21, 5.56, 4.94 = 5.80

Comments:
Nice scrambles this week, even getting a sub 6 ao12, I don't consider myself sub 6 yet, I've done some sub 6.5, 6.25 ao100, but I'm trying very hard to do at least more than 100 solves a day, to get top 10 in Brazil, may need sub 5.6 average til my next competition in March, precisely in 58 days.
Also, Congratulations to Carl for getting 1st place in Adelaide this weekend, and for that sub 5 average, keep working to get that sub 4 you really want.
That's it, I'm still looking for some place to buy a new pyraminx, It will probably be the moyu magnetic one.

Thanks! Yeah, although I got 1st I still failed that average :( The 7.49 at the end was because I dropped the pyra on the floor at the beginning and had to pick it up really fast. At least I got a 3.1 single and won in pyra :). Now time for me to go back to practicing!
