Some questions.. :)

Post by alfonz on Mon Nov 10, 2008 7:01 pm

Nagtry na ako mgsearch pero la akong makita eh, paki lagay nlng link pag meron. Thanks. Anyway..

1.) I use intuitive F2L. I read na maganda raw ung F2L ni Nakajima, so I tried learning them. Some of his algos are the same as mine (intuitive), while some parang d ako komportable. Should I continue to study and memo them or should I use mine na mas sanay ako? Other suggestions on what F2L algos I should use?

2.) May nagbebenta ba ng DS, DIY etc magandang speedcubing cubes sa stores or online lang talaga?

3.) I use TRU cube, ung Rubiks brand. May Mr. Brix's din ako. IMO parang mas smooth ung Brix's kesa sa rubiks.com. Ano ba mas mganda sa dalawa? xD

4.) What is break-in and when to do it?

5.) Can someone give me a brief summary/description/comparison etc ng mga DIY cubes? Including ung mga type at color etc..

I'm still sub40 and I'm on my journey to sub20, please help me. xD Maraming thank you po in advance! Very Happy

my answer for #:
1) its on you if you like the nakaji's F2L or your F2L. .as long as you think your fast for that algos. .

2) For DS, you make pm popoy/ venom/ pmarcelino and many more. .they sell DS cube. .Venom also pero na break in na yun kaya mas maganda and un lng mejo mas high price kasi break in na xa eh. .
for DIY you may look in trade center of the forums. .

3) for TRU cube, you need a long long long break-in para gumanda yan. .
Mr. Brix is good pang OH po. .

4)read this http://pinoyspeedcubers.forumotion.com/noob-s-area-f12/perfect-tension-ng-cube-t4081.htm?highlight=perfect+tension

5)hmmmm, im not a DIY c4y user eh. .LOLZ. .i used rubiks assembly kit po. .for me mas ok talga un LOLZ. .i recomend rubiks assembly kit mas ok siya than DIY c4y[FOR ME]. .

practice lng po. .lahat nag daan po sa SUB 1min or mas matagal pa hehe. .bibilis k adin po. .
improve mo na look ahead mo po un ang pinaka impo + finger tricks + all OLL / PLL. .

answer to number 2:

have you tried trade center? marami po nagbebenta dun..

Also, yung DS po ay makikita sa mga suking palengke.. Divi rin po marami rami pa.. (based dun sa huli kong punta)

http://pinoyspeedcubers.forumotion.com/trade-center-f18/

answer to number 3:

wala pong tamang sagot diyan.. The answer will all depend upon you.. Kahit na sabihin ko pang TRU kung hindi ka naman po comfortable dun diba? wala din..

links regarding break-in

http://pinoyspeedcubers.forumotion.com/noob-s-area-f12/break-in-sand-in-the-cube-t217.htm?highlight=break

Pagka sub40 po, sumunod po sub35, the maintain, then sub 30, then maintain, then sub25, then maintain, tapus pag malapit na ssa sub 20, medyo ma iistock.. Pwedeng magskip karin kaagad from sub40 to sub30.. My tip is to practice practice practice.. Kahit mga mamaw yan ang sasabihin.. Wagp o kayong mainip wala rin po kasing madaling bagay sa mundo, excluding nakajima, lolz

Questions of asesstment:

Ilang months ka na po ba?
Ilan narin po ba OLL at PLL niyo?

It depends to you. I suggest use the algs that you are comfortable with. or learn another way of executing the case (learn a different alg for a certain case)

DS can be bought in Divisoria. Although mahirap na ata humanap ngayon.
DIYs can be bought only online. Although some are selling them here. Please go to our trade section for more sellers.

TRU Cube, many believe is not meant for speedcubing. Simply because you can't adjust its tenstion. Mr Brix is better because of its smoothness. Some say that Mr Brix is really a DS cube. (another answer to question no. 2)

4.) What is break-in and when to do it?
Break-in, in other term, :"pinapaluma" like your shoes, medyo mahirap at masikip siya pag bago. Pero once na luma na siya, napaka comfortable na niya. You break-in your cube at you play with it. Make sure you only have one or two main cubes so that you'll be able to break them in, better.

quoting from another forum

Type A cubes are smooth cubes that cut corners well. Quite heavy and pops though.

Type B cubes are cubes that are not good. They are noisy and a lot of people do not like them.

Type C cubes are replicas of Rubik's DIY. They have added extra modifications to make it better (they said so).

Type D cubes are cubes made from a different kind of plastic (I think). They are quite smooth but locks up easily.

Type E cubes, aka DianSheng cubes are sucky cubes. They have bad quality. However some people like this cube as it is small and light.


There. Smile

Thanks po sa lahat ng replies.

@i luv cube

Actually matagal na ako nag simulang magcube, mga 1 year na cguro, pero cubing lang un, nde speedcubing. May time na nagstop ako for a few months. Pagbalik ko un sinimulan ko mag speedcubing, a few months ago, di ko na maremember eh siguro before June. Mejo mabagal progress ko kasi ngaun lng ako nagseryoso sa speedcubing. Very Happy

PLL: Lahat 21
OLL: kakasimula ko lang, mga less than 10 pa.

Anyway thanks sa tips. Very Happy

Yep ur right. Dun ako mabagal sa paghahanap ng F2L pair.. Kaya dapat practice3x din ako. xD

I'm also around sub 35 to be exact pero minsan 35-40. Maintain muna ako below 35s.

EDIT: Another question po. Kailangan ba ng magandang cube like DIY's para maging sub 30 or sub 20, o pede na kahit TRU/Mr. Brix lang? Nasa skill lang ba tlaga un?

i think it's in the cuber, not the cube itself (though deciding factor rin siya)... pareho po maganda, sobrang gamit na na tru at ds, although mas gusto ko yung ds kasi maganda reaction sa lube at adjustable yung tension...

if your goal is sub20 average..i think u need to work hard on your f2l..like paololzki said find a better algs that suit your fingertricks and your fingertricks will develop along practising alot of times..and master your PLL..sana magawa mo sya ng sub3secs..ung kay nakajima nmn, actually kumuha din ako ng mga algs nya pero ung madali ko lang nagagawa..find some f2l algs sa ibat-ibang cubing site like cubeloop,cubefreak.jmbaum..makakatulong sayo kung pagsasamasamahin mo silang lahat..happy cubing..
