Agreed Ludwig Speed King they are and have been the best for over 40 years not a fan of the cheater type doubles the sound is not right using them the bass drum does not have time to resonat correctly ...of course this is just my opinion..
I agree, the ludwig speed king is really nice. it's lightweight and very fast. i have an old one that cam with my 1968 slingerland. i use on my kit the iron cobra double pedal but the left side gives me problems. i'm gonna change to double bass and get 2 axis singles.
pearl eliminator double pedal (blue cam) ... I feel like the power is definately there when I need it, but at the same time it's delicate enough to play ppp when needed as well. it feels great in my full dynamic range!
I also really love the DW 5000 single, but I can't find a the feel i like in the 9000... i just can't use it. I feels like i'm playing a feather.
Tama Iron Cobra, definately the only pedal I've found that holds up under me. And the adjustability and fluidness of the pedal is sweet. The DW 5000's are nice, I've had them, but not as adjustable as the Cobra, and don't hold up as well under extreme playing conditions. Thats my $.2
