In July 2015 the World Cube Association changed their regulations to allow the use of stickerless puzzles in speed solving. I'm curious whether or not that event changed the sport somehow. Are some professional solvers still using cubes with stickers or did everyone move to stickerless cubes on day one? Is someone collecting statistics about the use of different cube types?
This is what Glenn said on JRCuber:
"I have only one Stickerless 3×3, 6 Stickered. To me there is a completely different feel you can go way faster if set up properly. As well as you don’t have to worry about nails scratching and stickers grinding. All smooth plastic.
Plastic for speed solving.
Stickered for big cubes.
Hope that helps."
