As it is I have dismantled my kit at the moment for refurbishing (peeling the vinyl off and then a varnish), but I can tell you the only thing it really changes is the placement of your toms, if the tom mounts are attached to your bass drum. I found it feels like playing involves less stretching/reaching when playing and everything just feels more easily accessible. I think if I ever have to use a standard double kick again (like when I get my Axis pedals and can play like George Kollias a week or two later) I will mount my toms on racks so I can approximate a center-pedal design.

Here is a link to the patent-holder for the center Off-Set pedal brand system with a thorough description and some visual aids:

And here is a video of someone talking about and playing his Off-Set pedal and how it affected his kit and him.
