    What’s the f2l insert where the edge is in place and you can stick in the corner with a d and a d’ if you have an empty slot to play with?

    Trying to sort my f2l out here, it’s going to be a real slog breaking out of my comfort zone.

    Is there an alg that solves this case nicely, or should I just do ZBLL (which is pretty short for this case once you insert)?

    Insert plus easy ZBLL solves everything really nicely. You could also do the WV alg to a Jperm if you like that better.

    How do I plan EOLine quickly and consistently in 15 seconds, and how can I practice? Currently, EOLine for me is extremely inconsistent, ranging from 2-20 seconds to solve.
  6. How long have you been using ZZ?
    Really, EOLine is pretty easy after a bunch of practice. Also, after you feel comfortable with EOLine, if you do, don't put you fingers on the bad/good edges. It gets in the way.
    Also, have a set way of recognizing edges. For instance, I always start a y2 away from my solving position, check all the edges on Back (but currently F), y2.5 seeing edges on Left, Front, and then Right, then y.5'. Usually takes me about 2 seconds. 3 more for off the bat Line, and usually more to see if I can do anything extra nice like preserving a pair or just predicting one.
    That's how it works for me.

    Experiment, see what works best for you. Then do 1k solves, and you should be good. It's a process.
