Questions Timing of defoliation and lollipopping for photoperiod plants

I'm 50 days into my grow and ready to flip my lights to 12 removed link   I haven't done any pruning or defoliation yet.  Just some LST.  I plan to lollipop my plants.  I've seen a variety of opinons on when to defoliate and when to lollipop.  I'm thinking I will do some defoliation today and flip the lights tomorrow and then lollipop 21 days after that.  

Does that make sense?  Any recommendations for a different plan?  Thanks in advance.  You can see my subjects below.

It doesn't really matter. Only if height is an issue for you then you want to defoliate-prune after they finish stretching, pruning will promote vertical growth. One thing you should not do before flipping is topping the plants.
