Practicing during the Thailand Open 2013

Thanks for visiting my “about me” page. My name is Isagani Esteron and I run this site you are on right now, bestspeedcube.com, but more importantly I am a speedcuber.

The story of how I started speedcubing is probably the same as others, where you learned how to solve a Rubik’s cube, then as you managed to solve the cube more and more, you asked yourself “I wonder how fast the last solve was?” At this point you’ve become a speedcuber. This was in 2007, from then I looked around online and watch some videos. I learned about Fridrich method and learned all the algorithms then started getting more consistent and faster. I enjoyed joining several competitions and being part of cube meets. I stopped cubing to prioritize other matters, but now in 2013, I have started speedcubing again. Anyway, this is a really brief story of my cubing history.

I made this site because when I started cubing again, I only knew a few speedcubes available which was the rubik’s DIY cubes and the cube4you cubes, which in my opinion were pretty much the same in terms of performance. Coming back to cubing now, there are so many speedcubes out there that it’s really hard to choose which one is better then the other. My aim is to discover the best speed cube or speed cubeout there for beginner speedcubers, people like me who want to start cubing again or maybe someone looking to buy a speedcube as a gift. It will not be easy as the “best speed cube” will differ among many speedcubers. I will also be doing other posts related to cubing.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

    Sorry to bother you again, but I still kinda need help choosing a cube. I feel the QiYi Thunderclap is a really good cube for me, the price is 8$ with a mesh bag. Do you mind doing a review? Do you think it is good for me? I average 1:20 and pb is 1:03. Im learning CFOP. Please guide me on this. Thanks a lot it means so much!

      Hello Fear, at your level of speedcubing the type of speedcube isn’t really that big of a factor. What cube are you using now? The Thunderclap is pretty good value since it does have the mesh bag. Performance wise it performs well with other good cubes on the market. If I were you I would concentrate more on CFOP algorithms and solves. At this point improving in CFOP will get a huge chunk off your times rather then getting a “better” speed cube which might only improve your times a little bit.

      Hope that helped,
      Thanks!

        I’m using a rubik’s brand but the stickers are fading real bad, can’t tell the difference between yellow and white lol. CFOP still seems tough as f2l takes a min lol and my white cross is 20 secs (ik sucks) lol. Thanks alot!

      Hi Marcos!
      Layer by layer method is good for just learning how to solve the cube and is isn’t ideal for speed cubing because it is inefficient and slow. Once you want to solve faster, I would suggest you learn more advanced methods like the CFOP which is capable of solves of 10 seconds or less.

      Hope that helped,
      Happy Cubing!
