singles verse doubles on double bass

whats up guys

i posted the other post on hands with this issue ,

but does the same apply to feet ,can a drummer be just as effective without learning doubles on their feet and only sticking to singles?

1)if not what method can you use to learn doubles on the feet?

2) which is faster doubles / singles?

3) what do players like virgil and thomas lang use on db?

4) how long does it take to develop doubles on your feet with accuracy ?

5) learning rudiments on your feet ? does it help with control , why do guys like virgil and thomas lang do it?

thanks guys i know its alot of questions but these questions have burdend me and alot of my friends who drum as we at a loss with all these various methods and techniques

thanks again help appreciated
