I used a small nailclipper
I tried cutting some parts off and almost all of it was removed but now the magnet holder seems to wiggle a little. As I said, some of the effect is magnet strength increase but some of it may just be heavier corners.

Goodbye 3x3. Megaminx is my main event. PB single: 51.63, ao5 1:02.68

Planning to finish learning full megaminx PLL by the end of the year

Still doing 3x3 but not as seriously because I don’t see much potential in my skill. I’m doing EOline now because it’s fun and I don’t care much about speed anymore. (Still manage to average sub 11 though? Cool)

Also, planning to pick up some 3BLD soon. I think I’ll start by learning Orozco, unless you all have a better suggestion for stepping toward full 3style.
I would say that if you aren't good at blindfolding solving yet, don't go in that direction, and instead start at a place where you can gradually be able to move outside of your comfort zone for solving BLD.
For an approach I would recommend:
-Prestage: Start with old pochman edges/corners. This will teach you about setting up cases + parity.
-Beginner to sub-2 minutes: Get good with old pochman, and learn how to avoid and parity algs. Also, practice good habits for
-Intermediate: Move on to M2 edges. There are more algs for particular edges, and there are more special cases, but parity gets easier, or doesn't exist if you know how to memo right.
-Sub-2 to Sub-1:30, or even sub-1 minutes.Get a little good M2, but start learning 3-style. I don't think orozco is worth it because if you already are good at setting up to commutators and know how commutators work, then you will work well with 3-style. Otherwise, you can try orozco if you would like.
-Sub-45: Switch to 3-style corners, then 3-style edges. Drill the comms and set-ups to make them speed-optimal.
-Sub-40: Learn more advanced tricks, like multiple corner twists, floating buffers, etc.
However, if you have been doing BLD with OP/OP or even M2/OP and you are at a decent speed, then you can do orozco(bleck) or 3-style. Then continue on from there.

I disagree with this part of your suggestion. M2 is just "4" actual algorithms, and the rest are very intuitive setups. As someone who already knows multiple methods and large alg sets, zzoomer could probably learn M2 in an hour or 2. After that it is just practice. Which in my opinion, M2 doesn't take any more practice to master than old Pochmann. Considering how much faster it is, he might as well jump right to it.

EDIT: I agree with not going orozco though. Might as well just switch straight to 3 style.

Wow, all without predicting first pair too that's awesome!
