I didnt put the eliminater because I dont like it, I tried it at sam ash and I just didnt like the feel and thought it was just too adjustable.

The one that you've tested out extensively and have come to the conclusion that it is the pedal for you.

Most likely a Trick, Axis, B.O.A. or Drumnetics.

I've actually haven't played the Bigfoots, just the shortboards version.

They felt great.

Try out Trick, Axis, B.O.A, and if you can Drumnetics.

I've got to find some longboards to test though...

You have exactly the right attitude towards this purchase.

The two things to consider, in my opinion, are how the pedal feels and how well it is constructed.

As far as construction is concerned, I know of no other pedal that is better constructed than the Trick. In that regard, it's the hands-down winner. All the others, I can where the point of failure will occur. On the Axis, the weak points are the spring bearing carriers. On the Drumnetics, the drive linkage looks like the weak point... too soon to tell for sure, but that looks like the spot. DW's are NOTORIOUS for hinge and bearing problems, as well as U-Joints that fail. I've looked at the BOA... it's tough to tell where it will fail, but I think the metal that provides the hinge/spring action is the obvious point of failure.

As far as feel... those are ALL great feeling pedals. The TRICK is the most adjustable, and I really think it can emulate the feel of the others on your list. It IS a little tricky to set-up initially because there are a WORLD of options in the setting. It can go from too loose to too hard, and all points in between.

I own and endorse Tricks, but I would have them if I didn't have a deal with them.

That being said... try EVERYTHING on your list!

Beleive me I'd love too but I rarely get to my Sam Ash and even when I did (a month ago) They only had the eliminater and the IC. I would love to try the Trick and Axis though!

And the GC probably doesn't have a trick, or axis, or boa and it absolutely won't have a drumnetics.

Are you ever up in Rochester, NY? I have an Axis A, Tricks, and the local 5 star has almost everything else you're looking at, 'cept the drumnetics.

You could go to Dales in Harrisburgh and try most of those pedals as well. Worth a drive before spending the benjamins

I've never been to Rochester and I dont have a car (working on that though.)
I might just have to take the plunge and decide on one even though I really dont want to do that.

TRICK fastes pedal on earth (maybe not) but its faster than axis and really smooth and quick response
