That alg is definitely slower than triple sune. Also, you can predict EPLL with only a little bit more effort (H perm away). If you really want to use a pure twist alg, use the one I posted above.

You say that like the RUL alg isn't at least a reasonable alternative to the (significantly longer in QTM) RU alg. (But yes, fortissim2, please try alternative algs as well, and triple Sune/Antisune is definitely faster.)

It's not just how long the alg is, but ergonomics are a factor too. I can do triple sune faster than the RUL one because RUL switching isn't great when there's a better option.
Yes, I know, and I'm saying that I can execute the RUL one just very slightly faster than the RU one (for pure twist! I'm not comparing to triple Sune!) on average.

I used to use the R U2 R' U2 alg, but switched to the RUL one (over a year ago? don't remember) after drilling them hundreds of times, so yeah, I've done that already.

does a square-1 method exist where you solve it like roux?

edit: nvm find it
although it sems a bit different than I would imagine... I thought cube shape would be reached when solving the top layer corners. not at the beginning
