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?

    $\begingroup$ Stickerless used to be disallowed because you can see colours of the rear faces without tilting the cube as much, giving you an advantage. As far as I understand it, it was realised that at the speed of the top solvers this was not really something you could take advantage of. $\endgroup$ – Jaap Scherphuis Mar 22 at 21:33

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."
