Wich technique is right for playing double bass rolls? im playing on lower tempos not much using ankles but weight of whole leg and on the highest tempos im not so good yet, maybe i need more work out with lower tempos or is it that on higher speeds i need to use more my ankles? can someone give me advice about that?

ankles are the key to fast double bass. there are tons of posts on this topic tho so use the search option to find them.
