I was just wonder what are people's personal favorite PLL Alg is meaning which one do you find the most fun.

Mine is a Z perm: R' U' R2 U R U R' U' R U R U' R U' R' U2
Just because of how nicely it flows.
(This is my first post by the way, I have no idea if I'm doing this right XD)

This one is my favourite because it's almost 2-gen and super fast and easy.

R' U R U' x' U (R U2 R' U' R U' R') U2 R U R' U' x

The first 4 moves are really just a sledgehammer performed at a rotation, the part in brackets is an Anti-Sune, and it has a sexy finish. I don't understand why this isn't the alg everyone uses.

Very interesting I actually hate the alg that I currently use for that perm (I forgot which one it is) so I might actually use that one.

(similar to AlphaSheep's above...)

I learned this nice V Perm not too long ago: X' (R' F R F') U R U2 (R' U' R U' R' U2 (R) U R' U')
(it's easy to remember as a: "sledgehammer" U R U2 "Sune" into "easy move"!)

but I guess my favorite is really a category... Permutations of Edges Only
I like all these because i like Middle slice moves:
H-Perm: M2 U' M2 U2 M2 U' M2
Z-Perm: M2 U' M2 U' M2 F2 M2 F2
U-Perm: M2 u M' u2 M' u M2

I'm not a big fan of slice moves personally I try to avoid them, but hey everybody likes something different that's why I created this thread.

I don't think I've ever seen someone who uses the same Jb as me. r' F R F' r U2 R' U R U2 R'
I've never actually seen that one but I probably would have used it if it was the first one I learned for Jb but I like the one im currently using :)

I've always used the unconventional R2 U S' U2 S U R2, but I like this one and never knew about it.

Same alg from a different angle, also equivalent to an R2 conjugation of the Mu alg: r2 u M' u2 M' u r2.

(I tried to use this alg for a while, but it was too much slower than just AUF + RU U perm + AUF.)

Aesthetically, I love the symmetry of E-perm.

Speed, I love J and U.

I'm also fond of the flow of this Ra perm: (R U' R' U') (R U R D) (R' U' R D') R' U2 R'
