Ortega is really easy to learn on 2x2, its only like 10 algs, provided you don't already know OLL from 3x3. I think you have a better shot of being sub 15 with roux, because it takes less tps, however, if you want to be sub-1 on 4x4 you are better off with CFOP because M slices suck on big cubes.

but 4x4 isn't a big cube.

Well, turning my moves on one is still hard, especially if your inner magnets aren't so strong, or its a bad cube overall (If you say YLM I swear)

The YLM has weak magnets.

Roux works well on 4x4. I'd recommend a method like Meyer, which is like the "Yau4" for Roux users. M slices aren't an issue on 4x4 assuming you have strong enough inner magnets. wink wink mjs who mains ylm

On 5x5+ CFOP is definitely better, but honestly when it comes to big cubes having good center building and edge pairing skills is more important

while they are weak, I think the ones in my YuSu v2 M are weaker, although the core on mine is broken rn, so I can't test. I think when my new core comes in I'll do a comparison.

Yes , but I am planning to learn all methods ; I've learned ZZ and petrus also but I I dont practice them because they are not worthing it

Replying to @Alex Davison and @MJS Cubing and @DNF_Cuber

My 4×4×4 doesn't have magnets

Alright :/
Bad news !!!!!!!! I am gonna post this week only and the 2 weeks after it are TEST !!!!!!!!
soo I will not have enough time to practice and learn new algs and some stuff bcz I have to [ study ]

Get the YLM or the YuSu v2 M. If you have the budget, spring for the MGC. I like the little magic the most though.
Umm sadly I have a cube called fanasty cube and it is very bad , but ...... I cant buy another one because there is no shop can ship for my country.
And if it does it costs alot , and we have to pay in $not our own currency. And we dont have$ in our country bcz no one use it

He switched from roux to CFOP for 2h. Doesn't make sense to me, because he must have been pretty fast at 2h to get 17 second times consistently at OH.

I used to he sub 10 with roux in 2h but when I switched to cfop in 2h I became slower

why did you switch???

#### Alex Davison

i'd recommend you switch back to roux tbh

#### Lilas ma

##### Member
why did you switch???
I dont find many people using roux to learn from ....
Most of people are cfopers , so I thought it is easier that roux , but for real it is too much harder ....
And also other reason for using cfop it that I'm learning new methods every period I get bored

BUT ROUX STILL MY MAIN METHOD
