The best part of the pen trick is that you hear the correct noise loud and clear. Also don't try to restrict your ring and pink finger from moving. Not everyone holds their marker with their shooting hand. I just let my hand free float and I would say I do pretty good. I only use semi anyways.

This has been said over an over in a Lot of places but it definitely works. I like to use a tight rubber band and loop it about my index and middle.finger and slowly flex each one, I learned from swimming that sometimes to get faster, all you need is to work the muscles and polish your form, before you start to Sprint. I usually go for half hour stretches of slow flexing, to keep myself entertained I listened to music or watched a movie. Listening to music meanwhile really helps, because you'll find yourself timing the "trigger pulls" to the heat of the song. In class I like to tap my leg with my two fingers quickly to work on speed. Don't force long ones there. Short and to the point, I did bursts of about 20 pulls and rested for a minute, then again. It's like any other workout, treat it like one. Later on once you have about a 10.4 trigger speed, work on not chicken winging it and touching.the trigger with the tips of your fingers.

Hope this helped (:

this thread has been very helpful..
i haven't tried the rubber band method, but I am doing the pen trick at work.

I have started by going slowly and moving my fingers in large controlled motions instead of going as fast as i can. this seems to have helped me with my finger control and timing.

I notice i tend to walk a trigger very out of rhythm at times, and this has helped quite a bit.

Thanks! Going to give the rubber band technique a try. Anybody ever try the coordination and strengthening techniques from piano training? Just a thought.

how to make your fingers faster in 6 steps.

1) Turn marker on programing mode
2) Set marker to PSP mode
3) Adjust BPS cap to 13.33 or 12.5 or 10.2....w/e.
4) Turn on tournament lock.
5) Pull trigger at 3BPS.
6) TADAHHH! Fast fingers without fast fingers.


Use the modes on your boards to your advantage.

I'm lazy.

Though the rubber band trick, and pen trick both work.

It's all muscle memory, practice. For me, I just started thinking about it all the time, so I just started tapping my fingers on a desk anything. I even tried downloading a app for my phone. On iPhone, they have 3D Paintball. Lets you create a few markers, but the real point is that it has a way where you can tap the screen and it will tell you how fast you are tapping. There is a way to cheat it and get over 20bps, but not the point lol.

After at least a month of literally tapping, even while driving on the steering wheel. You will get to the point where you do it automatically and not have to think to go faster. You might not see it through the app, since it's tough to get the right angle like actually shooting, but when on semi, you will see and hear a difference.

Hope this helps! ^_^
