So I've been practicing economy picking by playing scales (modes in different keys; ascending and descending) in eighth notes and sixteenth notes (at 125) but when I solo, It feels like I'm not economy picking or picking fast. Is there a way to see if i am? or any other techniques to increase solo clarity and speed?

For an accurate measurement of how fast you are, I'd suggest reading what you've just written. As for other techniques for developing "clarity and speed", tons of lessons in my sig and in the stickies. Enjoy.
