ZBLL learning is pretty fun imo. Also, full TUL is worth learning even if you use CFOP so why not?
Exactly. I've known about it for a long time, and I've wanted to start learning, but I've just been to shy to say it. The thing I'm thinking of is a full ZBLL commitment, and I think I might be the only guy to do this.

Edit: I'm sorry.
Being serious now, what method of recog do you use? Also, what was your learning pattern like as far as daily practice/review/ect?

I just recog the COLL, then look for patterns(which is basically Baum-Harris recog afaik) for T and U and @OreKehStrah's NCP for L
As far as practice routine, it was, let's say all over the place. I learnt it on and off(which is why I took 8 months to do this but the total effort I put in was only about 3 weeks' worth).
I learnt 12 algs per day using train yu(with a virtual cube)
The recall seems to be great. I can remember the algs for months without review.
I still need to review/drill the algs using a real cube though since my executions are pretty bad.

How exactly does that work? I've heard about it before, but I still don't really know how it works...
You basically input the algs you wanna learn in that white field thingy below, check the use virtual cube option and just hit next scramble and just solve it. Tao Yu has a whole video about it. Train yu lets you do crazy things(like learning 24-36 algs in a day).

Btw I should be thanking Ore for suggesting train yu or else this would have taken forever.

Ok I'm checking it out now. How does the virtual cube transition to irl 3x3? It seems like that would not work very well...

Yeah it usually doesn't. You still need to figure out fingertricks and drill the algs until they go into muscle memory. But the good thing about it is, it cuts your time and effort while learning algs for the first time by almost half. But after all this, I've only got 5-10 good solves with ZBLL until today.
