Thinking of trading my longboards for BOA Pedals...anyone have any experience with the BOA's? Marco Minneman uses them and they seem pretty legit.

I tried them and they're really light and quick and you can't really feel them at all, but I much prefer the heavy feel of my DW5000s.

I love my Axis, I just have a hard time adjusting them both equally because it's a double pedal and the springs are so close together

Hmmm.....I adjusted the heck out of them. I would change the tension on the springs, the angle of the beaters, the beaters them selves....I dunno I just can't get a solid footing with them. I'm probably doing something wrong.
