Default Re: Yamaha pedals?

I really like the action and feel of the 9500D, but I'm a little concerned with how well it's going to hold up in the long run. Parts of it seem pretty cheaply made.

For example, I took a look at the way the link is held on both ends. For what it costs, I was expecting to see machined pins riding in bushings. Well, the bushings are there, but instead of a machined pin with threads on the end, it's just a regular screw/bolt with threads all the way down.
So the threads are the contact points for the bushings which take the brunt of all the motion.

My older Yamaha pedals seem better made.
