i was previously on this forums for a very short period of time couple of years ago. during my time i was pretty embarrassing, so a belated apology for that haha. this time however ill be more active and...
So, I feel like ZZ is kinda failing me, and I just don’t know what I can do besides grind solves. I know EOcross, my F2L is really fast , and my last layer is meh. Idk, I just feel like ZZ isn’t the way. So for the rest of this month, I’m gonna use CFOP (because I was already a previous CFOP...

What I basically want to know is what are all the pros and cons of the three most popular methods.
I ,at the moment, use Roux but I want to know if Roux is a good method.
Write down your opinions on CFOP, Roux and ZZ.
The idea of HTORoux is to produce decent to low move counts for Half Turn Only Reduction (HTOR) from the Domino state in a reasonably quick and easy way, making this method ideal for FMC.
The reasons behind this:
There is a high chance for slice move insertions to solve bad edges.
I know this is not new, in fact it's just kian mansour algs for Roux EO, but... I found a better way to organize cases and help people finding the solutions easily.
The cases are in a table with top and bottom of the cube. Solutions lead to the arrow case if it isn't arrow.
I hope it helps, as...
I currently average around 35 with Roux and 2-look CMLL. I know I have to work on first and second block, but when I slow-solve I notice that the biggest pause I make is after executing CMLL to check which perm alg to use. I use J-Perm and Y-Perm, so for J-Perm I have to AUF to set it...

Hi. I'm really new to cubing- for about 3 weeks. it started at work, when we got a new break room. Among other things, they brought in a Rubik's Cube. Someone sat down and solved it in about 10 minutes, and I got jealous. So I bought one, and learned how to solve it that Saturday.
8.14 (Petrus), 10.71 (ZZ), 8.55 (Roux), 7.27 (CFOP), 11.49 (Freefop) = 9.13 average of 5 (9.23 mean of 5)
Cube: aolong v2
Don't have scrambles, sorry.
I'm planning on taking a bit of a break from cubing now as I have important exams coming up and I need to focus. So until summer, I won't be...

My first sub 10 average of 12 with each method:
CFOP 9.85 avg12
Roux 9.82 avg12
