Re: DW 9000 pedal users please chime in...
I picked up a dw 9002 (not the newest model) this past black Friday (249 at GC after coupo s couldn't pass it up). I have been seriously pleased with it. Out of the box the spring tension was just right. Only a minor adjust to beater angle need and I was off to the races. Crazy smooth pedal and I haven't noticed any slave lag (but I am not a blaster). Anyway, I like the chain. I may try the included strap someday, but for now I am having too much fun to take it apart.
