By mid-March 2006, sub-30 is becoming more common. I have learned some OLL cases, but still use a 3-look LL most of the time. My F2L is still crippled by hesitation, but it's improving. Here I got a 27.53 on the timer, even though I fumbled the last twist and wookies were yelling in the background. The cube is a 2006 DIY with Cubesmith tiles.
