The Axis pedals are also very efficient so you don't have to play them that hard to get a good kick sound. The whole 'mass versus inertia' thing...
Not sure about the efficiency thing since I owned a Trick for a while and I use to slam it pretty well, I didn't play any different than I how I would with my Cobra Jrs, they just looked that much cooler for me. One of the reasons I stopped using the Trick is because I spent all day making it feel like my Cobra Jr.! So having a $375 pedal that acts just like my $60 pedal didn't make much economic sense....
