Looking to push my staccato a bit.

Edited: September 14, 2018, 6:48 PM · I was taught a sort of mix between finger and wrist staccato. It works in some situations, but I find it a bit underwhelming in any virtuoso repertoire or dances where it really should be a bit faster.
At the moment, I can play long runs with staccato at just over 120 BPM (sixteenths). I want to push it to a solid presto, which would be something like 140 to 150 BPM and higher. I've tried all sorts of things (stiff arm, ricochet, spazmatic twitching), but I don't get a very good sound or very much projection with any of those methods yet and I'm not sure which technique to stick with.

An example of what I'm going for.
