Default Which roll direction is easier?

For any people who don't know what that means, a roll in FFR looks like this



Which way do you find it easier to hit this pattern? (assuming no jumptrilling allowed, aka no hitting it like [12][34][12][34])

Left to right rolls, or right to left? (The one pictured above are left to right rolls.)



This type of poll might have already been done at least once in the past maybe, but I wanted to see how the results would turn out at this current time

That is very interesting, because I'm also right handed, but left to right rolls feel way easier for me for some reason

I also think wrist down/wrist up plays a factor and how close the keys are, where the keyboard is positioned relative to your body etc etc.

They feel the same to me because there's always one hand in a roll that feels off in accordance to the direction I'm going.

Right handed. Left to right is easier for me.
When doing right to left I have issues going from 2 to 1 (whereas I don't have the same issue in the opposite situation of going from 3 to 4).

Right handed. Left to right.

If you force me to roll right to left, I eventually have trouble to know when to press [2] at the right moment.

Please, Don't Give Up (feat. Ryan Torres) mirrored would be extremely difficult to even get 25 goods on here while on non-mirror I have 1-0-0-1.

If you analyzed my replays in depth, you would probably find a high % of mistakes all happening on that very pattern ([2][1]) regardless of if it's on a roll or a [23][14][23][14][23] jumptrill.

I have an old screenshot of one of the things that happens when I roll: (Mario Mix For Piano middle section) (yes, that's my AAA run)

(even, which is to say i'm pretty inconsistent at both)

I'm exactly this too. I find it easier to lead the rolls with my right hand and let my left hand follow the rhythmic pace created by my right dominant hand.

4-1 (right to left) is where I am most comfortable

I'm strangely weak in my left hand, so 1-4 isn't very feasable unless they're fast enough to hit as (12)-3-4.

In the heat of a juicy roll, they both feel the same to me. However, I find it easier to transition into a left-to-right roll as opposed to a right-to-left roll.

In terms of speed, I feel I can do rolls more easily from right to left, so that's what I chose. However, I feel I have more rhythmic stability with a left to right roll, whereas I could lose that control from the opposite direction more easily.

Right-handed.
I feel left-to-right is easier, but sometimes I can't hit them, and can hit right-to-left no problem. Sometimes the speed of the roll also changes how I feel about it.

First lefty of the thread here, ascending quads (or "left to right rolls", as yall apparently call them) feel more natural to me.

R-to-L is easier if I'm doing jt roll walls, but I can deal with L-to-R rolls better if they just occur once or twice in a stream.

LTR is easier if I don't JT. However, I do find RTL easier if JT is allowed.
