Managed my second best time over the weekend (29.something). Not a PB, but glad the sub 30 without CFOP wasn't a one-off!

Same question as above! Are you using finger tricks? They really helped to bring down my times.

Otherwise, I think my biggest improvements recently have been based on the cross - so planning ahead your moves to try to get the cross finished as efficiently as possible. I was eating up a lot of time because I hadn't properly planned ahead through inspection (still a work in progress!).

😍

Ohhh I see.. Iíll try to use inspection of my cube more often!
I donít think I am using finger tricks at the momentÖ Iíll try to give that a go though..

Thanks!

Sub 25! Honestly surprised I've managed to break the PB again whilst putting off CFOP so aggressively lol.

Thanks Coolmate. :)

26.61 just now, including big time lock-ups. Ooft. Could have been a PB for sure - spooked myself when I saw the lucky scramble.

EDIT: And then 27.18 on the next solve. Ooft. Looking forward to getting 25.something.
