You certainly don't look like an idiot Larry, the theory you explained in the other thread made sense, even if I guessed that the benefit if any, would be negligible in terms of feel.

But I did warn you that a different beater weight could affect the feel and the sound of your strokes, even with the same technique being used and the same pressure power.

At the end of the day, we'll hit our snares and toms heads at an angle with our sticks, seems kinda logical it happen with the beater on the BD batter heads.

There's way of reducing the fatigue you're experiencing by adjusting the "whole setting", and by "setting", I don't mean just the pedal, I did a thread on this topic, I don't know if you've seen it, here it is, everything is said in the OP, you need a "setting" which allow you to cover all style and dynamic level, effortlessly and in in relaxed manner, like you do with your hand/stick.

Not chuckling here... ahem... but honestly Larry, you had to go the whole way with your concept, it is the only way for sure to understand and know what works for you or not, you're simply wiser than before now :)
Keep On Drumming
