Lots of new cubes obviously, there’s the Gan 356 XS, Valk Elite, Moyu Weilong WR M 2020 and the Dayan Tengyun V2 M for flagships right now. Cubes like the Meilong M, RS3M 2020 and Qiyi MS are the best budget cubes around and compete to almost flagship levels

For me I learned about Cstimer when I averaged about 25, before then, I would always have to get someone else to time me or use this really bad stopwatch I had at my house.
hmm i used to use cstimer but i didnt really like it. I first timed myself when i got my first single of 5 minutes. Then i used cstimer at around 3 - 1.30 minutes.

From what I can tell, magnets are pretty much present in all new cubes these days except in the very cheapest ones.

I have a magnetic Pyraminx and a magnetic Skewb that both make an audible click when I turn them. What is causing this clicking noise? (I'm not talking about spring noise; these don't have any of that).

This is usually an indicator that the magnets are not glued into place. They're probably sitting in a slot and can move around when you turn the cube. A drop of glue will fix it.

I've always thought that double moves (like U2) take longer than one move but shorter than two moves. So why not count them as 1.5 moves :thunkful:
