I immediately felt the Camco pedal was lighter and faster, and that hasn't changed much....
I also didn't play a lot with my heel down at GC....I would have noticed how horrendous that cheese grater is if I had.
Still trying to make it work, all different spring angles/tensions, etc.....I have to try and change out the beater, that in itself may make the difference I am looking for.
Jeez! When GAS becomes a problem... oO Crazy to buy something that isn't as good as your current pedal, you should have picked up another Camco!
You probably didn't spend enough time or do enough research to catch that heel-plate issue, have heard a few other people complain about it.
Can't blame you though, I hate trying out stuff at stores, I always feel a bit guilty. Still, I think that helps me use stuff in a way that ensures it doesn't lose any of its value due to poor or abusive usage. Really feel awful to see gear in stores that's been so poorly treated it can't be sold, since most people want shine more than substance these days.
Back on topic: you should keep wrestling with the pedal for a bit before taking a decision to pawn it off. Sometimes stuff grows on you. Maybe the bristley heel plate is a message that you need to play heel up! ;)
