The Pearl Eliminator pedals (particularly the strap drive) are the quietest, most adjustable pedals around, and a double pedal only costs $230 with a case, and interchangeable cams. Why spend $500 bucks or more? Obviously it's personal preference, but I have owned double pedals by all three of the aforementioned manufacturers, and I just can't stand feeling like I got ripped off. In the end functionality is most important, so don't just follow a trend.

Yeh a trend of awareness yeh listen to this guy he knows what hes talking about because hes cheap.

Axis wins buddy. I got my Xl-2 longboard double pedal for 330 bux on ebay and it came with sonic hammers and shorboards. Mechanically the pedal is amazingly sound.

And extremely quiet. They make no noise.Why? NO CHAIN. What do you mean no chain? DIRECT DRIVE! Is that faster? YES.More responsive?Yes. Leading to less fatigue and more speed? Yes. Anything else thats special about them? Im glad you asked.

They have longboards, their greatly adjustable, the top drummers of metal use them, they last a loonnggg time being as u keep them in good condition as with anything, they have hi tension springs for quick response and their very very strong

I used to play the double Iron Cobras, and I only sold them because I needed some cash. I also gave up double bass for a while, and now I find I'm even quicker!

I haven't played any of the high-end DWs. I have a 7000 that I use on my rehearsal kit, and it is a fine pedal. I use the Cobra Power Glide on my gigging kit, and I swear by it, although they did take a little getting used to at first. Strangely enough, when I play the DW now, I find that I have more control and speed than before I started gigging with the Cobras. I'd love to try the Axis, but that's an awful lot of cabbage.
