Re: DW or Iron Cobra (hihat)?
I've been in the same situation as the OP few years ago when I was shopping for a new hi-hat stand and after multiple tryout of what was available on the market I landed my decision on the Tama IC Lever Glide and I never looked back. One of the best decision I had taken regarding drum gears. That stand feel smooth and is very responsive, more over it's build the Tama way... The strongest name in drums.
