Default Yamaha FP pedal users... advice please?

I've decided I'm gonna give one of the Yamaha pedals a go, I like the simple construction and the prices are appealing! I've been a long user of Speed Kings but the rattles and breakability of them are a pain.

also, I'm finally trying to learn proper slide technique and the smooth footboard is a bonus. I can't try them at any of my local shops so I'll be buying blind but enough people swear by them to convince me to try them.

What I can't choose between is strap or direct drive. My footwork has always been 'sloppy' and I've heard strap is more forgiving than DD - but then DD is familiar from the Speed King!

Can anyone comment on this? Also, the stability of the strap drive with the lack of baseplate?

any guidance is greatly appreciated

JS
