Forgetting algorithms

Hey guys.
I'm learning some hard f2l case algorithms so I can get faster at f2l. But it's weird because after learning them I start to forget some of my plls algorithms that I've known for months and can execute really fast. Then I have to quickly revise some of my plls and I'm all good again.
Does this happen to anyone else?

I recommend learning f2l intuitively and figuring out how to solve pairs rather than learning 41 different algorithms.
Intuitive F2L is all I know at this point. And it is painfully slow. If there's another way to truly speed up F2L other than to learn the 41 cases (recognition) and their algorithms (fingertricks), and committing them to muscle memory just like OLL and PLL algs, I'd love to hear about it.

I'm a big advocate for intuitive F2L, but I think that learning a few cases that are obscure or hard to do intuitively is good for some people. Intuitive F2L seems to be bad and slow, but stick with doing most of the cases aside from the hard ones intuitively, they will get faster over time. Not to mention it will help you learn how the cube moves/works.
