Alternatives to Kinch

As mentioned before, Kinch is just one way to measure the all-round abilities of a cuber. If you want to know your Sum of Ranks, you can visit our Sum of Ranks Calculator as well.

Different aggregation methods will have different tradeoffs, and some will debate which methods are better. That's why we provide multiple ways to measure your all-round abilities.
