If anyone here besides Erik and I use Petrus full time as our speedcubing methods, you know that there almost seems to be a completely different community in speedcubing consisting of Petrus users. I want to get together a list of Petrus users so we can figure out who the top cuber actually is, so if any of you guys use Petrus, let me know. I want to know your PB average, and what you usually average. Also, if you know any full time Petrus users, tell them to contact me! :)

I used Petrus but I don't cube for speed anymore. I averaged around 35 when I did.

I've been averaging 41 seconds lately with Petrus. I can't seem to get below 35, though.

Sorry, but I'm looking for people that use it for 3x3 as their main method.

I do.

avg 50 sec, 39 sec pb, still working hard on lookahead stuff.

I also have slightly different ll method that is very fast and a minimum of algorithms memorized. one look/alg to get to "fish" with correct corner placement. Then solve corners and edges together.

you know me...

usually 14/15 second averages.

Anthony Hsu has a pb average of 14.98. I'm pretty sure he averages in the 15s though.

I haven't talked to Kyle Allaire in a long time but I'm pretty sure he was sub 15

Kyle's back into cubing (again) and he says he's sucking right now, lol. I'll have to ask him later, although I think he posted in my speedsolving thread.

Speedy you Already know I do. We switched at the same time. I got around 25 for pb and 35 av. Right now I'm around 40-45 because I had a long break for school.
