Wow! Impressive. I hate you. Err... Maybe not that extreme, but I am filled with envy.

To make your F2L faster, practice "taking apart" and "rebuilding" each F2L Pair intinuively. Do NOT use any algorithms, it will screw up your times, after experience, you can do F2L without thinking. ~

well, my technique for speeding up the F2L is figuring out the next move while doing the current move. i learned that trick while my average was still above 60 seconds. learning to "read" the cubies in sub-30 times gets tricky and isn't an easy manuever. that's why my last timed average was only 28.822.
luckly, i've been doing this trick a while. cause 2{ish} weeks prior to that time my ave was about 35.22.
that "loking ahead" move works.

Yeah, I forgot to add that you should use the "fast-slow" method. It's pretty much turning a cube slower than how fast you can go (full speed), but you lower it a bit and turn at constant speed that allows you to look ahead for the incoming pairs. This will help dramatically. Macky told me so when I started cubing =]
