Default Yamaha FP8500-B

Just ordered this pedal. Read lots of positive reviews on it. I used strap drive pedals way back in the stone age and then went on to the direct drive Ghost pedal for years. For the last 15 years it's been a DW 5000 double chain drive. Very good and relable but I was looking for a change, also wanted to lighten the load a bit. Have yet to try the thing but I'm not a speed monster so not expecting a big break in period.

Any of you play this pedal?

So, with that being said I do have a Yamaha Direct Drive with an added Tama coil spring that I will be most likely selling cheap. Any interest let me know, I can give you pictures. I bought it used off eBay and just don't use it.
