    thats ten kicks per second , no way thats right

  • England Phil McFarlane

    As a drummer of 30 years, I recon that was about 75

    Steve, I was there and we thought we had a decent methodology for counting, but I'm inclined to agree the count is high. Do you have a video camera handy? Want to give us a better benchmark performance? Make sure the camera can see your drum hits and we'll count it manually by watching the video in slow-mo. Do you have other ideas for counting hits? This could be a really fun category, but we absolutely need to get the measurement right.

    Ya, I'm a drummer.. have been for almost 20 years, and there's NO WAY that was 101... This should be removed, discredits the site.

  • Canada Dan Rollman

    This doesn't seem like 101. Can someone slow down the video and provide a more accurate count? I'm suspicious.

  • the longest socony is more legit
