I typed this up for speed BLD a while ago:
http://cube.garron.us/algs/compOLL/

I came up with the idea to split OLL into 2 algs, yet one look, by using EOLL's without affecting corners. And it's only 9-10 easy algs

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thought of this, but I haven't seen it before. Is this a good idea?

I would use it, but I do not plan on ever using OLL for my main speedcubing method...

What method are you using at the moment?

Yeah, unless you happen to be using petrus or roux, you are going to get an OLL step either way... And you still get it even for petrus, but it is very short :D

There is a 7-look F2L method comparable to Fridrich without actual OLL, and not CLL+ELL. I still need to memorize all the algs and hone them for speedcubing, and then I'll post it (sometime this summer). But don't bother yourself over it, please. :wink: I won't tell you any more.

As for why I don't even use compound OLL: I currently use a mini-ZB method that does the last slot in two "algs" and ends up with LL oriented (example).
