Being equally fast at multiple methods.

Many of you probably can tell that Roux is my main method (Avatar, signature, etc.).

Well, Roux is a perfect method on the 3x3. I love it. BUT when it comes to Big Cubes (4x4 and on) I will have to give it to CFOP. This method is purely relied on the other faces, such as U and R, where Roux is relied on the M slice.
My point being, have you ever tried to be an M move with your ring finger and it just doesn't work as well on bigger cubes than it does on a 3x3? Well lemme tell you, it doesnt look so pretty.
So, Ive tried the Stadler method and Ive K4, but they just dont work for me.

One of my questions are: Is it possible to be equally good a 2 methods? Being the same speed for both Roux and CFOP at the same time? While Roux is on 3x3 and CFOP in big cubes.

Another thought Ive had in my head: Color Neutrality.

I think that being CN is only(Used lightly) for CFOP. Because they use cube rotations, so it doesnt matter what color is on your left or right. But in Roux. You gotta know what color is left and right(For blockbuilding and LSE) cause there are no cube rotations(for me there arent).

I do think you can become CN with Roux, but not fully CN like in CFOP. I think you have to have your favorite faces. You kinda have to have your favorite color scheme or tracking will just be helll.
Maybe experimenting with CN will me find more favorites.

What do you guys think?

Yap. (I do CFOP when I use redux too, works well)

tbh I've been practising CFOP (ish) a lot recently. I'm sub14 and getting faster :)

I think you're wrong.

Most of the time I am equally fast with Petrus and CFOP. CFOP is easier but sometimes has annoying as hell pairs where as Petrus is harder but cases are a lot more efficient. I am more regular with CFOP but Petrus is more fun.

I thought you said it wasnt possible?
What did you think we were both practicing colour neutrality working on all colours for? To be partially colour neutral?

Also, Roux ain't too bad on 4x4, but I use Petrus for even bigger cubes. It's possible, look at Stachu, I think he was/is 'method neutral' using a few methods.
The problem with this is you have to put a lot of effort to get faster...
