What is more efficient?

When required to hit a target three times, is a controlled Triple, controlled pair followed by a single or a single followed by a controlled pair more efficient?

I would say a controlled triple. Steady, even, fast pace.

Certainly a "controlled triple." I have seen top shooters do a Failure Drill (Mozambique) so fast and smooth that I could not hear the transition from CoM to headbox. So surely you can put three to CoM rapidly and consistently.

That said, I have seen people so locked into the double tap that the double + single is obvious. Doesn't mean it is "efficient".

Yes it’s cadence, sometimes you simply cannot transition and keep it as the distance is too far but why would you ever pick a controlled pair, proceeded or following a single (I guess uncontrolled?) when you just keep the momentum going on the pair for one more shot?
