Jean. If you look at the SCC UWR list, their average times for F2L
are sub-9. Since Fridrich and ZB "share" the first few steps--cross,
and first three pairs--I would think you could only compare the
remainder of their solves, instead of comparing entire times. For
example, I remember seeing that you would like to be within one second
of the 1st place on the F2L fastest average list. Therefore, would
you feel a bit more confident in ZB if your ZBF2L was sub-10 seconds?
Even with a 6-second ZBLL, that would give you a sub-16 average.
I think that since there is an overlap between the two methods, it
would give you a better idea of comparison by comparing your speed for
the ZBF2L alg + ZBLL alg to the speed of a Fridrich 4th pair + OLL +
