Currently, I'm working on full Fridrich. I know intuitive F2L, am working on advancing from 2-look to 1-look OLL, and know full PLL. I get all my OLL and PLL algorithms from badmephisto's site http://www.badmephisto.com. I've seen people constantly emphasizing how important good algorithms are. What I'm wondering is are there any algorithms on badmephisto's site that you would have a better, faster alternative for?
Thanks.

Most of those are the ones I use... I rarely use his left J perm, but I know it.. I use left handed J or y R'U2RUR'zR2'UR'DRU'... which sounds weird, but its what I do lmao... also z perm use 2gen. The aforementioned j perm is not supposed to be z, it is supposed to be a U2LU'R etc.. but I perform with the cube rotation because it is more friendly to me that way

I use maggot's J perm. I would execute the OLL or PLL from badmephisto's site and if it feels awkward or slow learn a new one.
