Lot's of good posts here.

There's a big difference between operating PSK31 and high speed CW.
Most high speed CW operators copy in their heads, which requires the
patient cultivation of an acquired skill.

Not so with PSK31. Install the software, get it to run, youse a member
of the club.

Years ago (think several are still around), there was a CW group called
the 'Chick Fat Operators'. This was a "by invitation only" high speed CW
club. They copied high speed morse by ear, but mostly sent using a
keyboard. Several of them were capable of copying in excess of 80 wpm
by ear. Is that not "real" CW?  Embarrassed

Others have reverted to using a keyboard when they develop arthritis or
some other debilitating condition. That could be you or I some day.

The ways of sending morse include

straight key
double speed ("cootie") key
semi-automatic bug
paddle + electronic keyer (single or double lever)
keyboard

Please take time to learn about all of them, and don't belittle those who
have made other choices than you.

Though I am incapable of typing as fast as I can run my K3 and Benchers, my MAIN reason for avoiding keyboard operation is **USUALLY** the K'Bd OP has no QSK. [I am told it is not only possible for QRQ guys to QSK, but common. I cannot say since I can't Run With Them]  But the few 30-ish rag chewers I *have* chewed with were Non-QSK, and that really kills a conversation...

"I think there is a guy who can do 1000wpm"

I think you mean 1000 cpm (characters per minute), which is 200 wpm (words per minute)  See: http://www.rufzxp.net/

The RufzXP is a great program for speed work, no matter what your speed is.
