What are you guys' thought on half-centers? Do you think it would be faster than solving centers one at a time in certain cases? I feel like the lookahead is worse for me, but if I got used to it, do you think I could improve my times by maybe half a second?(I average around 34)

hey does anyone know if you can do wide moves in the 3x3 stage on a 4x4? I can't figure out how to use my L algorithm on it (Fw (R U R' U') Fw')

I would use this alg instead for that OLL. F U R U' R' F'
In general, you should learn algs that have no wide moves since they cause the cube to be unstable. Especially when you get up to 6 and 7

Just picked up 4x4. I do all 6 centers first and then do edge pairing but I noticed that, somehow, the centers swap positions after I'm finished pairing the edges. Maybe it's because I use Dw R' F R F' R U' R' for the last two edges? Not sure. Also is it viable to do centers first then edges?

Thanks.
