Hey guys, since getting a puck at the UK Open and lubing it I've ofund it has potential to be a great speedsolving puzzle. I imagine it could become more popular than the magic :)

My best current time is 36.84, but that's with my old system, my new system should allow me to get a sub-20 average after practise possibly.

The algs i'm using (from jaaps's page) are:

General:

badbdbadbd
dbdabdbdab
abacedebaeacd

12:

dbcdcd
ceacae

11:

cbcbac
cebc dcec

10:

bdabcbdb

As you can see, I don't use most of the ones on the page, as some algs can solve multiple cases.

With these algs, you can solve every case in one alg, after you do the first six pieces, you need one alg for every piece after that barring lucky cases.

I've found it quite easy to perform these moves fast with a well lubed puck, so that isn't a problem anymore.

Also, I would like to try it BLD sometime.

How's everyone else getting on with this?

EDIT { pb 32.81 (with parity)

Average: 41.49 seconds
Individual Times: 35.19, 37.08, 43.47, 48.14, 38.44, (14.67), 44.31, 40.17, 45.52, (52.06), 41.83, 40.73 }

I struggle getting sub 1:30 times, but my puck doesn't turn that well and I only use:
BADBDBADBD plus inverse.
