Watch this video if you want to be fully educated but I will give you an alg to do this

M' (only the very middle layer) U r (the 2nd layer only slice move) U' M (only the very middle layer) U r' (2nd layer slice move)

M' U r U' M U r'

I saw Feliks use this flip algorithm on 3x3 in his most recent video: R' F R F' R U' R' which is basically the inverse of the standard flip algorithm: R U R' F R' F' R. I think the one Feliks used is better for 3x3 because it's regripless, but I'm also considering using it for big cubes. What are your thoughts on using this for big cubes, I think it's probably better, and I'll start using it.

I have been using this for a while now and I first saw it in a Chris Olson video. I like this one better than the conventional flip alg as you can do it regripless. I would recommend you try using both and see what feels better to you.

I prefer the regular grip and not the inverse for now but I might see if the inverse is actually better.

It's better for 3-5, but at larger cubes the standard one becomes easier


At least that's what J Perm said

I’ve always used the inverse, and the normal one is only faster for me on gigaminx (lol)
