### FREAK compute() speed up

Is it possible to reduce FREAK extraction time below 70ms?

I am using FAST in pyramids for detection and it takes 1ms to detect. FREAK extraction never takes less than 70 ms. I tried to reduce points passed to the algorithm but never gets below that time, so it is not point-dependent. I am just doing one

extractor = new FREAK();


and then call the method, so it is not a constructor problem I guess. Maybe is something that FREAK does always when you call compute and it is slowing down all the process.

Is there any way of calling the extractor in a static way, like with FAST?
