Default Which Finger Do you use for scroll wheel?

Which finger do you use to turn the scroll wheel? Index? Middle? Ring? Pinky??

I'm right handled and use the index finger, the same finger that is on the left click button.
My cousin is also right handled but uses middle finger to turn the scroll wheel. His excuse is that he doesn't want to take the finder off the trigger in MP game.

Sometimes you can zoom with mosey wheel. Sometimes you can control Sam Fishers walking speed too.

middle finger, always resting on the scroll.
My WOW rogue uses Middle scroll button to go into stealth.
In CS I scroll up for primary weapon, down for secondary, thumb 1 for knife and thumb 2 for nades, with fastswitch.

Middle finger.

3 buttons = 3 fingers

My hand fits perfectly over them, no stretching needed.

I'd like to see someone using their pinky though. That'd be pretty funny looking.

It's really a mix between middle and index for me. Just depends on what my brain tell my hand to do . . . .
