For F2L, everything of it is easy, as the algs are short. just learn intuitive and learn cases for the ones you're having problem with

Ths is my reduction method:

Algorítmos de speedcubing

You learn the basic cases then proceed to learn cases that reduce to the past learned cases

as you progress you'll know how to solve the final part then it's less things to learn

That is really cool, seeing different cases being able to reduce to another more familiar case, I think I might use some of those algs, thanks

why is inserting with a normal insert except rotationless favored here over a sledgehammer? I've always found sledgehammer to be faster

I just did a bunch of OLL and PLL solves on Jperm.net, and I average around 1.4 seconds for OLL, so probably 2.2-2.5 with recognition, and for PLL I averaged around 1.85 seconds, so probably 2.3-2.6 with recognition, and together I would have an average of around 5 seconds for Last Layer, so I spend around 8-10 seconds on F2L, and around 1-2 seconds on Cross.
Edit: for OLL and PLL I only timed the algs I knew, so it would probably take more than 5 seconds to do both.

I just got my first 10 second solve, I am pretty happy with it, but hopefully soon I can get a sub ten single.
I am gonna take a guess and say that I will get a sub 10 single on November 16.

take my advice, and start recording all your solves.
if you get an oll or pll skip, (or a LL skip) you can have a sub10

I regret not filming any of my sub10 solves ;_; sadge

I think I am going to start working on 2x2, and learning Ortega. I already know 2/5 algs of PBL, and they don't seem to be that difficult. OLL doesn't seem too bad as it is basically just like OLL from 3x3, so I know 6/7 of them.

I just got a sub 14 ao5, I am very happy to have gotten this, and getting two 11 second solves in a row was extremely lucky for me
I also got a mo3 of 12.303 because of the two 11's
