I hadn't done any corners only / edges only practice in a long time. Couple days ago I did some 40ish edges only solves, and found I average roughly 34 seconds at them (Mostly M2, few comms).

Memo takes anywhere from high 5 to high 10 (full audio).

I think I'll start doing those as warmup for 3BLD sessions. Could also maybe help me improve my dumb execution a bit.

Still mind blown by your memo, almost tempted to stop practicing sighted events to work on bld specifically but I like clock and 3x3 too much :p

Would anyone be interested in a comm list that's based of Daniel lin's UFR and Ishaan's UBL corner comm list? I feel like I have something to contribute to all the lists out there, even though I'm not world class.

Most definitely. Do you have Ishaan's UBL list, by the way? Been looking for it, to no avail so far. I could use some inspiration haha

In multi blind I recently did an attempt and the time was much much faster than what I was expecting. I noticed that for each cube, I was going through more than one letter pair before trying to pin it to memory, making it more efficient.
So, a question for fast multiblinders: If this even makes sense, how many words/objects do you read off of your cube before you try to stick them all into long term memory? Because obviously the more you do, the more risky it is to forget something or do something wrong.

I’m not super fast, but I do 4 letter pairs at a time, because that’s how many I store in one location. I like to find all 4 pairs and then make a collective image.

I've been thinking about this lately. I'm drilling algs and most my corner comms are sub 1.4 but in actual solves it takes me, some times way longer execute them. I've been trying to fix this by trying to spam tps, drilling algs, and doing sighted solves. Does anyone have any suggestions?
