The Axis X longboard was purchased new and the. Oly thing I have changed since I took it out of the ox is the beater. I swapped the stock beater for a Danmar Zoro signature square felt beater. This is a really smooth pedal with a light feel, which I prefer ( some people don't).
This pedal is used for my rehearsals and Rock gigs. i use a Sonor Perfect Balance Pedal for my jazz and Blues gigs.
Funny thing about feel...Im just the opposite. Sold my Axis after about 2 weeks of fiddling with it, getting hit with the hammer on top of my feet and just thought it felt too light. The Trick is for me.
