The CA95 has a heavy action, although the player has to do the work.


Interesting. Were you using just one hand or both alternating fingers?

@Carlos,

Two hands combined, with one finger from each hand.

Oh, I was under mistaken impression that you were doing one-handed repeats, like 123123 etc. Now I'm less clear about how easy fast repeats are on the CA95. I can do two-handed repeats at the same speed on my upright U3 - the only difference is, the dampers touch down in between and make it sound a bit staccato. It's when you have to do one handed shallow repeats that really tests an actions repeating capability, IMO.
