Meant to say megathreads, threads which have been made to discuss certain topics on for the future, such as ‘What Cube Should I Get’ or, for this case, ‘The Request an Alg Thread’

I use the RU ones. I think most of the world class cubers use them too. I know for sure, that feliks uses them, but pretty sure that most others, too. For me the one with M moves is slower

The U perms I use, grouped by location of the bar.
Clockwise:
back: R' U R' U' R' U' R' U R U R2 / R' U' R U' R U R2 U R U' R U' R' (OH)
left: R2 U' S R2 S' R2 U R2 / R2 U R U R2 U' R' U' R' U2 R' (OH, big cubes)
front: R2 U R U R' U' R' U' R' U R' / z U' R U' R' U' R' U' R U R U2 (OH)

Anticlockwise:
back: R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2
front: M2 U M' U2 M U M2 / R U R' U R' U' R2 U' R' U R' U R / R2 U' R' U' R U R U R U' R (OH, big cubes)
left: R2 U' S' U2 S U' R2 / R U2 R U R U R2 U' R' U' R2 (OH, big cubes)
right: z U2 R' S R2 S' R' U2

Why limit yourself to RU or MU, when you can use LU, RUS, and LUS too?

Here's a good RU one for Ua from back that's underrated: R U R' U R' U' R2 U' R' U R' U R
The best ones are MU, RU and RUS, It's really just personal preference.

Personally, I use the MU algs for 3x3, but the RU algs for OH and big cubes. I find it is easier to finger trick the MU algs on 3x3, but I can often accidentally slice while doing M moves on big cubes.

Yeah they each have their place. Slices on big cubes are just hard for me to execute.

When I’m solving new puzzles for the first time (shape shifting, non-wca, etc.) I’ve found It easier to visualize or keep track of the M moves since the 3 cycle is much more intuitive with M moves than the RU version.
