I use the mid-solve parity, you do it before PBL.
It's a shorter alg (7 slice I think)

Edit:

Here's the alg
/(3,3)/(1,0)/(4,-2)/(-4,2)/(-1,0)/(-3,-3)/

Yeah, that's what I use but I find it hard to figure out if a PLL is legal or not.

One thing that Lin is better at is reducing damage that parity can cause to a solve. On vandenbergh there is the 7 slicer, which does nothing other than shift parity and preserve obl, but Lin combines it with EPLL. You just have to learn 5 cases, which can be reduced to 3 when considering that opp parity and o perms are very similar. Obviously with CSP this isn’t important but without could save slices

Maybe I'm thinking of a different CSP lol. But what I meant is that this case (which I think is a parity case):

is a headache. I think I mean this parity case, not fixing parity during cubeshape. I'M NEW GIVE ME A BREAK
That’s quite easy once you know how to deal with it. I’ll try to explain, but it is very hard to do so in words only.

If you would like, I could try to make I video showing how I solve this case.

I just use my PLL recognition skills from 3x3

The problem is that I only use a small amount of information from the PLL case to actually recognise it, and sometimes the part that parity affected isn't what I use to recognise.

I solve it like this:

/(0,2)/(3,6)/(-2,0)/

And then the case you get from that is pretty easy, being

(3,0)/(2,4)/(1,2)/(-3,-3)/

Behold:
Poor financial decisions. I bought the YuFeng 2x2 as a joke, the Lustrous 3x3 as a showpiece, the MGC as a collector's item, and the YJ Appari because I believe it deserves an even-handed opinion.
Oh yeah, I'm also getting lubed up.
