Those use fingertips. And the only people I know who use their tips are Dynasty. You don't get to hold the gun and try in a practical manner.

He has a mini.... How can you not walk the trigger on a mini? Maybe adjust the magnet so it isn't as strong, because I had one for a couple weeks and I could RIP on it, where as with any other gun, I can barely walk the trigger lol.

I've done that A LOT. My wife can't even stand it anymore...
and thou it helps, nothing beats practicing it the way you'll be playing...
by that I mean standing up (you''ll never be sitting in a couch behind a bunker lol)
and having at least the tank attached to the gun so you get the correct poisitioning of your wrist
Another thing that helped me was walking my fingers to the beat of some music
I know it sounds silly, but it's all about rhythm and being precise
start slow and speed it up as you go
I know you people will say I'm either lying or bouncing, but I can hit 21 bps on semi on either of my Egos with stock board settings..

practice...all the time.

I do it all the time when I am driving on the wheel. It really helps when there is some music playing thats gets me thinking about paintball...such as music from a paintball video

IMO I think the trigger has to do alot with how fast you can walk.

i cannot walk the trigger on a mini to save my life
but i can hit 16-17 bps easily on my etek3 trigger.

after tinkering with the setting on the trigger, i found that a longer and looser pull lets you to go faster than a short and snappy pull. but thats just for me, maybe its different for others...

to those trying to get faster at walking, i suggest relaxing your wrist and fingers and start walking slowly to get a consistent pull at 8-9 bps. and once you get that down, start increasing the speed. (it WILL take time and patience)

also, rock climbing helps. it's weird, i know... but i was practicing for paintball last friday (for the coming sunday) and decided to go rock climbing with my brother... I finally noticed that when i do rock climbing, it works out your flexors and extensors (muscles in forearm which control finger movement) tremendously. expect popeye style arms. anyways... after the work out, try walking a trigger, you're at least 1.5 times faster, and if you go a couple days in a row (intensely) and get yourself to recover, your fingers can blast away at that trigger faster than an alcoholic at a strip club with free drinks... on a friday night... which happens to be either Halloween or New Years (white people kind, not chinese... unless you're in china and they have bangin women at the strip club)

the rubber band thing i dont care for at all. just adjust the trigger and work on moving the finger real fast and in a rhythm. if you dont get the rhythm right if just wont work.

the speed with which you walk the trigger is actually derived from your forearms. Grip exercises work well, or if you do any upper body workout for that matter your forearms will get it.
