Default Re: Roland V-Drums - Opinions??

I use an oldish Yamaha DT Xpress 2 which I find the pads quite hard on and tends to give you blisters so am thinking about changing / upgrading as I use it a lot.
One of the bands I was in I was elated when he said he had a Roland kit in his basemment and I could use it for rehearsals as I wanted a proper try with one and used it for many weeks.
I wasn't as blown away as I thought I would be and personally I didn't really like the mesh heads as they that bit too much bounce which I didn't find very realistic.
If I was upgrading now personally I think I'd go for one of the new Yamaha DTX's with Gel Pads as I think they're the most realistic to play compared to an acoustic kit.
