Technique not sharp enough for heads with dots (ex. Remo CS Black Dot)

I love how they sound, but I admit when I play fast licks on the toms, my technique isn't always sharp enough to stay on the dots. I've noticed a definite difference in tone between strikes barely on the dot and barely off, so I've avoided these heads. Maybe those strikes that miss the dots wouldn't be noticeable in fast licks, so my concern is unwarranted...?

If the strikes that miss the notes are noticeable, then perhaps a little time spent focusing on hitting the dots dead centre is warranted.

Never a bad time to brush up on your technique.
