What do you do when you have parity on bottom?

I always put bottom on top and flip at the end but that is costing you a second.

Adj Adj and then Parity is very fast and only adds 4 slices.
Otherwise, just learn the Adj Parity on bottom, it's essentially the same algorithm (actually it IS the same algorithm)

CPP(quite bad) or CSP (hard and big) if you plan to get very serious with Sq1

K thanks!

I'm just beginning with squan myself, but are you talking about parity as the last step? I learned you can do parity before pbl, which is a shorter alg, and I assume you can do it on the top no matter what.

You can also just use Lin and never get parity on bottom lol
Lin is, if you do PLL+1, a viable contender. What I don't like about it is the CS-FB transition, which is harder to efficiently lookahead to than Vandenberghs CS-CO

So, is CSP (Cubeshape Parity) or Lin easier?

EDIT: Sorry, just read your post.
I guess the question would really be which is faster...
Lin is easier. Full algorithmic CSP (which only few people know) is 360 algorithms.
Keep in mind that with Lin, you still get Parity, you just won't get the same cases.
