Depends a bit on your cube as far as the mechanics. Also a bit on other puzzles you do (e.g., 4x4) and variations, such as (M)BLD. I’d suggest CFOP to the majority of people.

In general or is that something you want to learn? In general, if you already use M2 for BLD then sure, why not… it is kind of difficult though to do all this M slicing that Roux requires with OH solves. What method do you use?

That’s what I meant earlier… if you are using OP for BLD then you’ll have T-, Y-, R, J(a/b)-perm as part of PLL already, so it’s convenient to use those two together.

If you want to upgrade your BLD to OP for corners and M2 for edges, you could try out some Roux solves (M slicing); however, if you already know all OLL and PLL cases, I’d just stick with CFOP.

What do you average at the moment with CFOP?

For MBLD event, 3-style is the best method to use for execution. And for memorisation, memory palace or roman rooms could be used.

For 3x3 speedsolve, I use CFOP and Roux. Both are really good methods,
