343ms on my iphone. Iím 51yo. That may have something to do with it, or maybe I have always been that way?

A third of a second is a long time, a missed shot could be down the outlane in under that time.

202ms... on a mac laptop, straight on the trackpad.

Note that if you use bluetooth devices you'll get added latency.

Screen latency is also a thing. If you have an external screen and it's not in 'game mode' you can literally have 50-100ms added latency for colour calibration, v-sync smoothing nonsense etc.

YMMV.

PS: highly caffeinated right now.

318 average only 1 of the 5 under 300.

I keep telling people I'm getting slow in my old age. There's the proof :lol

324 best, average 339. I'm 51 too.
Maybe it is the few days I'm younger than you or the beers I had on the way home at the Gremily!?
Interestingly, every attempt since has been higher individually and on average.

324 best, average 339.

So the above was last night on my iPad after the equivalent of 1 standard drink in the system.
This morning at work on the PC with a mouse and the equivalent of 1 standard coffee in the system.

218 best, average 248.

I reckon the use of the mouse makes a big difference.

Just really curious, I have played pinball since my early teens and have always considered them a reflex machine. Quick reflexes, you play well.
I figure the reverse as well, you play pinball, you will improve your reflexes. For this reason I ask, all you pinball players that play regularly, do you think these quicker reflexes from excising them playing pinball has increased your reflex times in real life?
I believe in my case it certainly has.
