Does anyone have a good website to learn PLL. Preferably with colors and arrows please, so I can recognize cases easier. I'm having a lot of trouble with case recognition, so tips would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

what about pinky then ring? sometimes my middle finger hits the DBR corner as I'm trying to flick the M slice.

Also: Am I the only one who performs the Z-perm with U' and M instead of U and M'? (I find M' horribly annoying to execute compared to M)
M2' U' M2' U' M U2 M2' U2 M U2
NB: you would have to start off with a U relative to where most people begin their Z-perms...

EDIT: nevermind, I don't do M, I do M', I keep forgetting that M follows L and not R.

I'm not sure if I'm ready for Look Ahead or not.. I can't really upload a video so I'll just explain what happens.

When I solve an F2L case, I either immediately insert the next pair or find the two pieces and hesitate a little before positioning them near each other to preform the alg. Does this indicate that I'm not ready to learn look-ahead? I also keep hearing that you should be able to solve F2L cases blindfolded.. If the pieces aren't next to each other and have to be aligned, would that be considered a case too?

If you try to look ahead and find it too difficult, you're not ready. Otherwise just go for it. And yes, you should be able to solve any f2l pair from any starting position blindfolded. I'm working right now on solving my 2x2x2/3 blind right now and it's not that difficult because you can just imagine them moving around as you move the cube. If that's too hard for you then you need to work on the best way to handle each case. Once you can solve any f2l pair blindfolded start working on doing two pairs. This is more difficult because you have twice as many pieces to account for, but with practice you should be able to do it. Eventually you'll just get to the point in sighted solves where dealing with the current pieces requires little to no brainpower and you will just naturally be looking around the cube for the next pieces you need.

hi i'm sub 13 for 3 months and i want to improve that.I've heard about F2LL and VHLS,i think it could make my avg better.But i don't know what should i learn? Learn all of them or just one?

Oh sorry, I didn't check. You can always use cube explorer and only put in the cross edges. That also gives you multiple optimal solutions, as well as suboptimal ones.
