As good as it gets
I played a DW9000 for years, and this thing is a quantum leap above it. It's hard to explain, but basically it feels like the energy and motion of your foot is more directly transferred - instantly - to the bass drum head.
There is also WAY more adjustability to this pedal; 3 footboard starting height slots, infinite height adjustment from there, beater face adjustment, including height and angle, infinite beater resting (starting) position adjustment (how far away the beater is when you start the stroke), and fast, easy, dial type tension adjustment. They really thought this thing out. Plus, you could drive a truck over this thing and it wouldn't even feel it. Way more solid feeling and looking that the DW9000.
For anybody who says they couldn't get the power/feel from this that they did from their other pedals, I can say for sure that they just didn't take enough time to experiment with the adjustments.
