Square 1: 1:57.88
Individual Times: (1:11.17), 1:38.74, (4:37.03), 1:28.19, 2:46.70
Practicing for big cubes summer. Times over 2 min are because of difficulty of getting cube shape.

pyraminx: 8.78
Individual Times:
(9.84), 7.42, 9.56, 9.36, (7.03)
Time to get a new pyraminx. Lots of lock ups and bad lookahead. Why do I always change methods right before a competition? Some solves were with LBL and some were with OKA (I'm actually using OKA as an intermediate for advanced WO Beginner WO is way too inefficient). The scrambles were very easy and average could have been sub-7. I will suck at Big cubes summer. :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

I'm not very good either, but I had the same solution as you except I mirrored and inverted my COLL and canceled a few moves, and I used an insertion for the U-Perm, saving 2 moves on the swap itself and then canceling 3 moves. My post is in the middle of the 2nd page, if you want to look at it, 35 moves.

I'm not very good at insertion, and yes, you found very nice insertion with 7 moves cancellation. :)

2x2: 4.25, (3.67), (6.38), 5.31, 3.89 = 4.48

3x3: 14.36, 13.69, (15.05), 14.33, (13.06) = 14.13

4x4: 1:07.91, (55.36), (1:15.98), 59.98, 57.11 = 1:01.67

Sq1: (31.95), 56.89, 37.36, (DNF), 32.03 = 42.09

OH: (27.22), 23.91, (21.14), 22.08, 23.75 = 23.25

FM:

Scramble: F R2 F2 R2 B' D2 R2 B' L' B2 F' D F U2 F U' R' F U2 L'

[Red on top Blue on front]
Building some blocks: U' L' U2 L D' U' R' F' (8)
Double xcross: U D B' D (12)

[Yellow on top Red on front]
Pair + Edge in f2l: U2 R2 B' R2 B2 (16)
Some OLL: U L' U' B' U B L * B' U2 (25)

* U L' D2 L U' L' D2 L (8 move insertion)

25 + 8 = 33 moves

Comment: Not bad, but I suck at FM, I don't really have a method. Oh I didn't have enough time for a good insertion, any suggestions?

2x2x2 : 7.55, (9.22), (6.58), 8.66, 7.91 = 8.04

3x3x3 : (32.56) , 22.56, 22.98, 29.98, (21.69) = 25.17
wow, PB average, shame about the first one.

4x4x4 : 2:12.58, (1:50.38), 2:26.03, (2:37.83), 2:22.70 = 2:20.44
nice single, bad average, bad cube.

7x7x7 : 17:19.67, (16:38.36), (19:05.11), 16:45.98, 17:04.22 = 17:03.29
my first average of 5 on this. :eek:

2-3-4 relay : 2:39.21

This was a crappy backup solution I was forced to use after finding nothing better. There's nothing really special about it.

clock: 7.88, 7.67, 7.44, 8.34, 6.89 = 7.66
pyra: 8.05, 5.13, 8.96, 12.69, 6.21 = 7.74
square-1: 19.65, 22.52, 20.00, 18.83, 20.22 = 19.96
