F2L or LBL??

Postby ninjareece55 » Sun Jan 31, 2010 4:11 am

is beginners F2L faster than LBL when you get the hang of it because I am getting around 1 minute with the LBL method but when I try F2L i get around 1:30 to2:00 minutes

It's down to practice.  F2l is far faster when you have the same degree of speed with both.

I was far faster with beginners.  My pb was about 1 min 10 and averaged about 1 min 35.  With f2l, after using nothing but, it went down to meet my beginners time.  Now my pb is 39.5 sec and I average about 1 min.

Well it depends if your cube is slick too if it's slick then try and try again it doesn't just clik in a day it might take over a month but I would go with F2L it's the most popular probably and maybe the fastest but the choice is up to you.

Here's my results...

LBL Method:

Average 3 of 5 - 43.97 seconds
Best Solve - 39.14 seconds

Fridrich F2L with LBL Last Layer:
Average 3 of 5 - 36.7 seconds
Best Solve - 32.82 seconds

When I say 'Best Solve', what I mean is the best time of the 5 solves.

From these results, I'll have to say F2L.

How slick your cube is doesn't make the bindest bit of difference to
which method is better.  A good method on a crap cube will always give
a worse time than on a good cube.



If you are testing both methods on the same cube, F2L is faster, provided you've practiced enough.



Just check out the fastest cubers, the ones that do sub 10 second
solves normally.  You will find every one uses a fast method like F2L
with full Fridrich, or Petrus.  I'd be willing to bet (although not a
lot) that there are no sub 10 sec cubers using beginners.



Please, if you can do this, I'd love to see it on a vid.

The full F2L method is much faster then the LBL method. If you practiced both very well I'd

say the difference in the time will be about 15 seconds. I started to use the F2L method

when I got to about 40 seconds and I'm almost sub 20 now.
