Default which direction rolls are you good at?

basically you know how 1234... rolls feel different from 4321... ones

for me, left to right (1234) is really awkward to hit repetitively for some reason and i know a lot of people are the opposite so i want to see what the general population has to say about it

spins or go home
1243 "inward" spins are by far the easiest 4-note pattern for me

of traditional rolls i prefer 1234

[2][1] and [3][4] are the hardest patterns for me because my indexes are shorter than my middle finger by a fair bit. I'm right handed so, [3][4] is slightly easier. If I start a pattern, im more likely to hit it right than if I continue it so; [4][3][2][1] are a big no for me and [1][2][3][4] flows decently in general if I'm forced to roll.

4321 rolls are a lot easier for me. 2134 spins are easily my favorite/easiest to do.
Edit: In situations that I have to do a 1234 roll. Half of the time my brain will freeze and do a 2134 instead.

I feel like all rolls feel natural and easy to hit with the exception of the awkward 2134 or 3421 patterns.

1234 rolls are super easy for me.

4321 rolls are my absolute worst.

Well, 1234 is easier for me to read. 4321 is easier for me to actually play, if I'm not concentrating.

I voted same difficulty, but they're roughly the same difficulty. I'd say right to left rolls are ever so slightly easier, and I'm right handed. And by easier I mean I feel more comforable with PAing them

tiny brain: hitting rolls legit and dealing with direction bias
medium brain: jumptrilling rolls
massive brain: quadjacking rolls to avoid direction bias

oh god oh fuck i accidentally voted 4321 right hand when i meant to vote 1234 right hand

I can’t answer the poll because for me it depends. If the rolls are not crazy fast, and begins on an even beat, then left to right (1234) rolls I can do pretty well and hit accurately. It’s a bit harder for me to catch up in this direction on faster speeds.
At faster speeds, it’s easier for me to execute the reverse (4321). But at slower speeds, I don’t find this direction as accurate. Perhaps the ease in rolling this direction results in having less control over the even distribution of speed between my two pairs of fingers.

4321 Leftyyyy

1234 requires more active attention on my part to not get spins

3421 is my good pattern as well
