I checked around and couldn't find a recent collection of Roux solvers so that's why I am posting this!

If you use Roux as your main method, please post, "Main: x seconds".
x = your global average.

If you are seriously planning on switching to Roux, please post, "Switch from y: x seconds".
'y' = your current main method.
'x' = your average time with Roux.

If you have any other information about your Roux solving then please post it as well. e.g. Do you use full CMLL? Are you colour neutral? etc.

I have made this thread because I hope that it will inspire more people to switch methods and will show people that there are some fantastic Roux solvers.

Full CMLL. ColorNeutral for Square of First Block. Currently working on improving efficiency of Second Block and LSE. I turn slow...

Main: 7 seconds
Full CMLL, plus COLL/CLLEF algs to influence EO
A couple of special algs in LSE
CN white/yellow on D

I think most of those so-called 'fantastic roux solvers' are fairly well known...

Main: 13 to 14 seconds

Full CMLL, most of COLL, random KCLLs. White/Yellow on bottom neutral. Slowly improving SB efficiency. Fast, choppy turner; trying to slow down a bit. I suck at LSE efficiency, yet because of my turn speed I'm decently fast at it.

I also use CFOP, average 15ish with it. Petrus as well, 16-17. ZZ, 16-17.

Main: 24 Seconds (sub20 ao5) (switched from CFOP, but I reached better times with Roux, so I call it main now)
Almost all CMLLs but sunes/anti-sunes, tomorrow it should be all but sunes/anti-sunes ;)

EDIT:

Ok, I already know all CMLLs but sunes/anti-sunes :) Today I will be earning the rest.

22ish seconds with roux. With CFOP I average about 14.

I am learning CLL(yes CLL) and I am not color neutral despite th fact that for CFOP I was color neutral since the start. I am bicolor neutral with white on bottom and blue or green for block sides.

I do hope to switch sometime.

I average like 8s for LSE. BEAT THAT!

Main: 26 seconds
I'm not CN. I always use white or yellow on U or D. I'm slowly learning CMLL, but for the most part I use 2Look.

I average like 22 with CN CFOP, 30-35 with Petrus, 30 with ZZ.

Main: ~17s (10.5-2.5-4)
See my signature for details.

Full CMLL, minimal color neutral for FB (4 possible FB out of 24)
Mostly have to work on FB.

Question: I'm using Roux as my main method since the beginning of 2006. Is there any older Rouxer here?
