Hi guys! I am starting a new forum competition for Square-1, with 5 solves as of 30th of May, 2017.

You can do which ever you like of AO5, AO10 or AO12 so I am posting 12 scrambles. (Starting No.5) You cannot do all 12 and do an average of the best 5 or 10, you can only do 5 if its AO5, 10 if its AO10 and 12 if its AO12.

The scrambles will be updated down here via editing:

Also I will be doing a poll on the most popular Square-1 (as you have seen)

Round 1
Race to sub 20

28.90, 28.31, (24.95), 28.69, (31.28) = 28.64

Not bad considering I just learned lin and don't practice much.

Round 1
Race to sub 40

40.40, 44.95, 46.66, (47.67), (33.14) = 44.33

Need to work on my EP recognition as it takes me a while sometimes and messed it up on my worst solve. Also thanks for making this

Round 2
Race to sub-20
Lin method


(27.87) (pop lol), 25.75, 24.87, 24.64, (17.66) = 25.09

conclusion - I suck lol. avg mid 23 at home, if i hadnt had that pop the first solve would have been low 20 or sub 20 ): lin has made me practice more! maybe next week :)

What was the SQ1 you used?
Pretty loose qiyi low modded with tanglong spring.
But my main is a qiyi low modded with the nut to replace stripping and a shengshou spring. I like the one with the tanglong spring because it's more controllable, but after popping so much it's not going to replace the one with the shengshou spring.

Qiyi is relesing a new SQ1! Qiyi Volt Square-1 can be Pre-ordered so i am adding it to the poll. i also got my moyu Weilong Square-1 today and i did not like it
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend putting a shengshou square 1 spring in it. Makes it way faster and more buttery, sadly it doesn't help corner cutting that much. (my friend has one)

Round 2
Race to sub-40


44.37, (45. 87), 40.98, (30.24), 38.08 = 41.14

Think i could have got sub 40 if I recognised my EP quicker on my slower solves, doing the right EP first time would help as well :p
