    I just learned how to solve a pyra using l4e. How can I become fast at it, and how should I practice it?

    I do not use to much L4E as a whole (although I have been doing more of it recently), but for trying to practice it, @DGCubes has some really good videos on L4E walk through solves, in which he explains what to look for and how to go about a L4E solve. Other then that, I would recommend that you do a lot of solves to get used to all the various cases, as well as practice on planning your whole first step or more during inspection. In other words, The more you can plan in inspection the better off you will be.

    Here are some of the L4E walk through videos:
    Hopefully this helps, but please ask more questions if you have them.

    Here
    Cubeshepherd mainly uses top first FYI. Dgcubes website (found by googling Dgcubes) has a l4e trainer. Haven't used it before, but his insertion trainer is great, so I'm sure it will be also.
     
    DGCubes and cubeshepherd like this.

    As @Duncan Bannon said I do use Topfirst as my main Pyraminx method (which I apologize for not saying in my first post) but from the averages that I have done with L4E my best Ao12 was a 7.13 and my best Ao5 was a 6.45, so as you can see I am not great (or even good) with L4E so take my advice with a grain of salt and as @Duncan Bannon said, DG's website has more info on L4E, so definitely check that out.
     
  6. The best way to get fast is lots of solves. Experimenting with different ways to solve each case is helpful too. I have a video on the different L4E cases(they can be confusing) and checking out Episode #28 of the podcast might be helpful too. Do you have any more specific questions?
