I have one and I have had it for about half a year and it's not terrible. I would get something else if I were you though, for the price you can get a PDP and they are very easy to control.

Don't buy cheap crap, cos that's what you get! Save and get something that'll last a lifetime.

Yikes, I love my Elims, but I'm not shelling out an additional 270 for a slave conversion. That's cuts my wallet a little too deep.

If I were you though, I would spring for the new pedal I just got. The Gibraltar Intruder direct drive. They are so light and smooth. You could buy the single pedal versions if you want, but the Direct drive is the way to go.

Or if you're looking for something even cheaper, The gibraltar Avenger II is only 170 for the double pedal and it is pretty freakin' sweet as well.

Yeah man don't buy a cheap pedal just to have one. I did it and it was terrible! Then I moved up to an Axis and found out what i was missing!
