4x4 OH?

What do you think would be an okay time relative to your own personal 4x4 times. I did an ao5. The slow solves I got parity on

I deduced that you desperately need an OH parity alg better than the beginner alg because I can't do fast parity one handed.

Based on this, since I average 40 seconds, it's about 2.5x times slower than my regular solves.

My hand hurts a lot. I used a Valk4M with strong magnets so maybe that's why but it is pretty difficult to turn a 60mm cube one handed.

The first 2 centres are fine and not that slow. I had trouble with look-ahead during Yau edges since I was using the table for support. The worst part about this is the last 4 centres. Normally i do them with my right hand on the bottom face but since I only got one hand now, everything is different. You have to adjust the bottom layer with your pinky/ring finger but then have to regrip in order to move the rest of the cube. It's slow and where most of the time loss is. Edge pairing isn't too difficult and 3x3 stage is the same except harder to turn. Parity is absolutely dreadful and is about a 10 second time loss. PLL parity is alright but still not good and doing PLLs on a bigger cube is quite hard as well.

So, does anyone have any suggestions on how one could improve 4x4 OH.

Note: I average 18-20 on 3x3 OH, if this helps
