I bought a Pearl P-122TW power shifter and i think its awesome, but if you guys have any suggestions on any better pedals for about the same price...tell me
Pearl P-122TW is the best double pedal for its price!!!!

Like Tim, I'm an Iron Cobra man, but I prefer the RollingGlide to the PowerGlide. Tamas tend to have heavier actions that Pearls, Yamahas, and DWs, but I like mine because it's built like a tank and it feels that way.

Honestly, as repetitive as this may sound, but i too am an IRON COBRA kinda guy, and i would have to side with the rolling girdle over the power. It just seemed more comfortable to use. i have had if for 3 years (i had the power girdle for only 2) and it has never failed to impress

If i could afford them, i would buy the Axis longboard pedals. they are so awsome... but i do not have $ 600 i can fork out at a moments notice so i'm stuck with my pearl powershifter eliminator 2 pedals. they are extremely adjustable ant very smooth.

I use a Millenium beginner double pedal (£50!!) and I think it is superb! A bargain too :wink:

Upgrading to a Gibraltar Intruder soon though.
