I actually found heel-toe to be a lot easier with the Demons (direct drive) BUT there's a definite lack of "feel" with these pedals which I still can't get used to (did you try them in longboard config)?
I've been thinking about switching back to chain driven and both your reviews of the Demon (chain) and DW9002 seem to back it up. Just need to decide which one would be best for me (going into a store and trying them out is no longer an option for me unfortunately)!
