I’ve seen pulpit rabbis who take a significantly longer time for their amida than do their congregants and have the shatz say chazarat hashatz (including kedusha) while the rabbi continues his personal amida. I’ve seen others who speed up their amida and have the shatz wait for them in a manner that a significant percentage of the minyan is done but others are not. What do you see as the pros and cons of each approach?

IIUC a book by a sofer recommends not relying on the chazaka of the S”A (or R SZA) but rather a cyclic checking of tfillin/mezuzuot (based on his own experiences). Question- what is the algorithm to determine when a chazaka should be reconsidered?
