That is so awesome... GJ man!
Sooooo what do you think of Hoya? :)
Thanks!
IMO Hoya doesn't look like it has the same potential as Yau... the fastest solves I've seen (here), while fast, have much slower cross+centers then Seb, Faz, or even me. Even on a 25 (which is crazy fast), the cross+centers were 15... which is pretty slow (my 22 had 7 cross+centers).

I'm not saying it's slow, I just don't see it competing with Yau, at least not the way it's being used now.

Edit: I just watched the 30.75 avg5, his cross+centers were like 13, 13, 15, 15, 12... which is about the same as me, and he's using a shenshou. So I guess I'm pretty wrong.

F4C on Hoya was ridiculous. Had a little luck with the Cross edges (green-white edge was already solved, unless you forced that). And my jaw dropped when you got to 3x3 stage. Great video.

Questions:
"Geez, finally." How hard is Yau on Left? Or is it just that you're not used to that orientation?
What edge pairing method did you use for Redux?

I found Yau on left really tough, I'm not really sure why, but it took me >25 attempts to get sub-35.
I'm not really sure. I generally just do 3-whatever. If I see nice cycles, I'll just do them.

That tps is outta this world.
Thanks!
GJ solves!

I had no clue Yau on left was even a thing/called that... I've been using it ever since I started Yau (though I suck at 4x4).

It's really nice knowing that what I do actually has reasonable potential for 4x4.
Thanks!

Honestly, Yau on left isn't really a thing, I kinda just made it up :p
