Order really doesn't matter all that much, just getting it done is what matters. Most people (including myself when I learned full PLL) leave G perms for last because 1. There are four of them and 2. The diagrams (which you shouldn't recog from anyway) are too confusing.I may have done something wrong in the order I am learning, because I only have the G perms V perm and Ra perm left to learn.
Thanks, I learned the A perms and the F perm after I had went to my first competition a month ago, and now I am currently going for the V perm, and I probably will learn some of the G perms next, possibly Ga and Gd for easier recognition, since the block is on the front.Order really doesn't matter all that much, just getting it done is what matters.

But it is probably more "optimal" to learn the most common first (those I stated in my original post), which is why I would recommend that to someone who is just starting PLL.
Also congrats on 15/21, you're nearly there so keep pushing!
The best thing to do at this stage is just practice. Make sure you have good finger tricks and efficient F2L and you will be setHow to get sub 20. I avg low 20s to 25s.
What I know
Cfop with full pll and 2 look oll
If you are willing to can you critique my solves. I am busy right now but I’m hoping to get to sub 20 and then sub 15 and then sub 10.
This is what I am preaching for years. Everybody keeps saying that you shouldn't learn OLL until you are sub 17/15 instead of saying just learn it and then this happens! Somebody, who is way too fast to not know OLL, who is about to have a horrible time breaking old habits. Could have been avoided if the general consensus was to learn OLL after PLLMy global average is around 12 seconds, that is because I was lazy to learn full OLL before.
I swear I need to make a pastebin of F2L lookahead stuff, so I don't have to write something individually each time.I’ve been cubing for about 10 years and I average around 10.5 to 11 seconds. My current goal is to get a sub 10 average in a comp that I’m attending in about a month and I was able to get an 8.85 PB Ao5 last night after getting super warmed up but I can’t consistently get under 10 for even an Ao12. I know about half of the OLLs and 12/16 PLLs but strangely I think my F2L is still proportionally the slowest part of my solve. Obviously I need to finish my last layer algs, but does anyone have any tips or strategies for making F2L faster? It seems like whenever I try to predict the first pair I will most of the time either run out of inspection time or lose track of my cross solution (unless it’s a really easy cross) and I have big pauses between pairs plus way too many cube rotations. I’m also pretty sure most of my f2l solutions are horribly inefficient but TPS kinda makes up for it. I feel like I could be competitively fast if my solves were smoother so if anyone has tips on f2l please let me know!
Vhls isn't worth it compared to doing normal insert+oll+pll. If you really don't want to leave zz learn zbls, but I would recommend trying zz out. It's just as fast as cfop if you know zbll.Instead of learning ZZ, is it better to learn ZBLS and VHLS (not counting Mirrors and Backslots) if you're still going to use ZBLL? What're the pros and cons of this?
Ah, I misread the question. The zb method is 700 something algs if I recall correctly, and it puts up similar times to cfop. If you want the eoll experience, I would try ZZ out, but I don't the zb for cfop is worth itWhat I meant is, not learning ZZ. Just using ZBLS/VHLS (FR slot only, excluding mirrors) with ZBLL with CFOP, instead of learning ZZ. Is that feasible or just too much work?
