This will take some time and practice to be able to answer with any certainty. So, it's too early to tell. My personal take is that I'm not going to always be cranking as fast as I can. It's easy to settle into a normal RPM or cadence and I've been using that for the most part. I've only pulled 3 shots where I cranked faster, and that's very relative, it's still incredibly slow RPM's when you think about it.
I'll say this much, even with my tedious WDT, I'm occasionally getting donut extractions, like this morning. They dont last thru the entire extraction, but for the first 3rd when it likely counts.
