No e-kit feels like real drums but anything with mesh heads comes closest IMO. The Yammies will either have rubber pads (like that Kat you should stay away from) or silicone which feels like hitting a foam mattress (to me at least).
Then again people complain about the bounciness of mesh so try out as many pad types as you can before purchasing.

+1 on that- all mesh heads (except for the kick) and a decent module.
