Nice history video but part way through the video I forgot if I was watching a video on Yau or the history of 4x4 records :p

Im a yau user on 4x4 and 5x5 and i think it’s definitely worth It to switch. It takes time to get used to it but at least for 4x4 and 5x5 yau is better or at least yau will overtake 4x4 and 5x5 in the next couple years. I also think of switching to yau at 6-7 but im not sure if its worth it yet.

By the way: Use Yau not Yau5. It’s a pain and can be confusing. Of course if there are free pairs or 3 move insert possibilities then go for it, but don’t use it all the time.

I personally think Hoya is a little easier to stay semi-decent at than Yau if you don't practice often, which makes it preferable for me (since I typically do less than 10 solves per week). In my opinion, Hoya is just as easy to understand as Yau, if not easier. But I suspect that if you want to get really fast, your chances are probably better with Yau than Hoya.

Methods has changed before, they will change again. Since Yau is only good on 4x4 and 5x5 and not used higher up, there is another method waiting to happen. Just mentioned Meyer for fun since I am using mostly Roux.
