I’ve been working on sfv for a couple years now trying to get better execution on a fight stick. And one question I keep having is, should I use my pinky to press buttons?
Full disclosure; my hands a not big. ( yeah, yeah ). So for me, hitting buttons with a single finger does not work well ( I often skim it ). I do the two-finger press instead, with index-middle on lights, middle-ring on mediums, and ring-pinky on heavies. It works ok, but I have real difficulty getting my pinky down into the HK position.
Recently I tried double tapping and I like that a lot for links, but I cannot for the life of me do it with my ring-pinky on the heavy buttons. The pinky is just too gimpy!
So Ian wondering, should I give up on the pinky altogether and use middle-ring for heavy buttons? This means I would need to move my hand out of position, but maybe it’s worth it for better hits. Do you guys use your pinky? I was watching videos of Momochi, Wong and Tokido, seems like they might not use it. They definitely double tap too…
