I've adjusted the set of 5002s they've had for years at our studio, and no matter what I do to them, they always feel heavy and sluggish compared to my Axis pedals. I think you just have to get used to a heavy feel with those, especially if you're coming from a lightweight pedal.
What I dislike the most is that they feel like they're a mile away from the head, too. I never could get the 5000s to feel good to me.
Even with the cam adjusted to put the beater much closer to the head, it still felt like too much throw- like I was having to step down way too far to get it to hit the head. If I use the normal motion I'm accustomed to, the beater never connects with the head!
Hope you can dial yours in to a zone you're comfortable with.
