Mehta has a 45-50 movecount, which is way better than the movecount of CFOP
It isn't. OH CFOP movecount should be lower than normal CFOP. Mehta, on the other hand, shouldn't have a big difference in movecount between 2H and OH because it's heavily alg based. Ultimately, their OH movecounts should be quite similar.
and Mehta is rotationless, which will help avoid table abuse and save a ton of time
As a ZZ solver who solves rotationless, I disagree. Rotations don't take much time, whether it's OH or 2H. And good CFOP solves should only have around 2 on average anyway.

Lastly, erognomics. I argue CFOP has better OH ergonomics than Mehta.

Also, there's the practical disadvantage. You'll have to actively practice 2 completely different methods.

I will still practice OH CFOP, but I also want to try OH Mehta just to see which one is better for me.

Epic PB Fail!!!!!!!
This is one of the easiest scrambles I've EVER had.
F L' F' L2 R2 F2 D U2 B2 L2 D2 U R2 L F' D' R' B' F U'
Inspection: y x2
L F D' L R' // XCross with a misslotted pair!
R U R' y U R U' R' // 2nd Pair
y' U R U R' // 3rd Pair
L U' L' U' L U L' U' L U2 L' // 4th Pair
U R2 D R' U2 R D' R' U2 R' U'// OLL+PLL SKIP!
I swear this solve literally was like five seconds, but then I looked down at my stackmat and it hadn't even started!!! The solve literally felt sooo fast!

Oof I was watching some example solves and realized I've been doing my F2L wrong throughout my entire journey of speedcubing. Whenever I did my F2L pairs, I would hold the hand that did vertical turns on the top and bottom, and the hand that did horizontal turns in home grip. I found that this often caused a ton of regrips because I constantly had to switch my hands between top/bottom grip and front/back grip. For someone who averages 12 seconds, this is going to be a hard habit to stop and start better finger tricks, but hopefully it reduces regrips and in the long run improve my times

Literally broke all my 2x2 PB's except single (by the way this was my first sub 4 average of 50 with Ortega)

I guess I should have finished the session before I posted, because I broke them all again. But now I'm done so here are my final results
