Hoya can be surprisingly efficient for 5x5. There are a lot of small tricks you can do that feel almost like F2L algs, so speed isn't super compromised versus other methods.I actually do not use hoya on 5x5 and bigger while I do on 4x4. It seems like to me that forming cross edges gets more inefficient movecount-wise as you move onto bigger puzzle, but maybe better lookahead could give you some edge, like how it is in 4x4? Not sure though.
