Can you make your Cobra Jrs feel like an optimized Trick or Axis? No, unless you shave a whole bunch of metal off of the moving parts and make it direct drive. The benefits of the Axis and Trick show mostly at the quicker range of foot action and especially with double kicks. If I were playing single pedal on a single kick, I'd opt for an IC or DW9000 or something too....and of course the Cobra Jr would be pretty good too. I even have a little brother to one!
