I am currently stuck around the 30 second barrier with 2-Look OLL and 2-Look PLL (well, 2-Look OLL minus two or three algorithms). I'm pretty much ready to move on to full OLL and PLL (not necessarily in that order), since I already know a handful of PLLs from 2-Look and BLD.

My question to the community is:
How fast were you when you started learning full OLL/PLL?

Which one is the poll for, OLL or PLL?

PLL - finished learning about 40 seconds or so
OLL - still haven't finished learning, know 1/3 to 1/2, currently averaging 17 or so

Learn in your own time, and when you feel ready. You will never be the same as anyone else, nor will you learn efficiently if you are not ready to. /thread.

Well technically, from the time you learned your very first OLL/PLL alg, you've already begun learning full OLL/PLL. (whether or not you ever finish it, or even come close, is another matter) So you could say I started learning full OLL before I ever solved a cube for the first time ;)

To give the answer you are looking for, I started switching from 2-look to 1-look PLL probably when I was around a minute or so. I know I was using full PLL by the time I got sub-30. As far as OLL, I don't remember at all when I started switching. All I know is that I took a really long time to do it, because I didn't care very much. I believe I was nearing 15 seconds before I learned my last OLL.

I only start learning more algorithms when I feel I have hit a plateau with times. I currently average mid to high 25-30 seconds
