Flowing very nicely doesn't necessarily make them easy to remember for me. These are very common G perm algorithms that lots of people love; I just tend to forget them. And honestly, I tend to have that problem with almost any new algorithm I learn - it takes about a year for them to become permanent for me.

Did worse than usual. Started off bad with the worst time, and started getting better, with the last being the best.

But, this time I don't have a single sup-25!



Same exact thing with me. It's not that I forget them, it's that my entire PLL is all muscle memory. So, once I get to the PLL stage of a solve, I just do it, and know how to do it. But, if I mess up halfway, I can't continue. Or, if I try to "just do" a PLL, without me seeing the "pattern" that it's supposed to be in, I just can't do it for some reason...

I also cannot do my PLL on a computer, iPhone App, TouchCube, etc... Simply because I cannot perform the fingertrick. And if I try to solve a cube that has horrible turning, and I can't do the PLL fast enough using fingertricks, I can't solve the cube.

It sucks, but I hope it'll be better one day. It's only been about 5 months that I've been cubing, anyway.

my turning felt REALLY inaccurate on this one. I usually get atleast ONE sub20 solve.. but this is my most consistent average of 12 ive submitted, i think.

Round 72

Average: 28.58
26.55 26.86 27.73 32.80 27.60 32.70 27.85 (22.38) 28.80 28.18 26.71 (35.15)

the last solve killed me, I did the wrong OLL and that just ruined the solve. The first 32 was a PLL fail(wrong g perm) and the other 32 the cube was out of control, The S slice was misaligned and I couldnt really control what I was doing. I guess thats the danger of having my guhong so lubed and loose

Yes, I can only do a couple of PLLs on Gabbasoft etc. without just messing them up. I find them very hard to do move-by-move or even on slow big cubes that don't enable fingertricks. I suppose repetition is the solution.

Well, looks like I'm coming back as a Roux solver. I've not been cubing that often lately and, as a result, my averages aren't improving at all. I finally got sub-20 with CFOP due to this thread a little while ago, so I figured it could help me with Roux. That first solve is a new PB, and the average was going to be, but I messed up a bit. Still a good average for me, though.
