does anybody know of any hybrids i could use?

c4Y (not all pieces though. missing one -_-)
type C + c4Y hybrid

I hear F-II core + Rubik's DIY cubies is pretty good... I've never tried it though.

This has already been done (multiple times, methinks)
yea... this thread is just one of the many "list all hybrids" threads out there... hybrid threads by nature just don't work very well because everyone will just end up listing their own hybrid and call it "best hybrid in the world." some hybrids get mentioned more than once. then people would yell at them saying, "read the post before posting hybrid!" sooner or later, the thread becomes 12-13 pages long and then it becomes difficult to maintain. anyone wanting to post a new hybrid would end up having to sift through all those pages of everyone's favorite hybrid. ultimately, it is unhelpful to have a "list all hybrids" thread.

here's what i think constitutes real progress regarding hybrids. make a thread that has some sort of objective rating system very much like pentrixter's sticky thread. then, start reviewing the famous hybrids or report progress on any experimental hybrids. but that would be too much work for dan. he just likes to make threads, slap on some rules, and then expect the mods to sticky them. that works for some threads like the "cube identification" thread but obviously not all or even most threads.

Why don't the mods combine the existing hybrid threads, Sticky it, add a mandatory system for adding hybrids in the thread, and if it gets good responses, the thread mod or creator can just add them to the list. It would be too much for one person though, so multiple people would need to shoulder the responsibility.

The system:
Corners -
Edges -
Centers -
Core -
Springs -
Screws -
Washers -

(did I miss any parts?)

This way, its all systematic, looks organized and easier to follow.

i think i agree for the most part. two things:

1. good responses are going to be limited. with the amount of active members we have, good responses would just be two or three at best (?).

2. i dont think it's too much work for someone who is passionate about hybrids. look at pentrixter's sticky. that probably took a long, long time.

Once again, may I just say, the type F 1 cubies in a ghost hands core is incredible. And I also tried the the type C 2 cubies in a C4Y core and it nears incredible.
Just out of curiosity, does anybody know of a hybrid involving an edison cube?
