For heel down you might prefer a longboard if you have fairly big feet. Personally, I play heel up and I still hit my heels on the stationary end of my shortboards. Just my 2 cents.

Light weight as in a light pedal to play?

The pedal that came with my little yamaha stage custom is pretty sweet. The camco reissue is cool. I'm a big fan of pearl p900's too. I'd just go play a few. There aren't any bad pedals in that sorta price range.

Whoops you said double. Pearl elims, pearl 902... don't think the first two pedals I mentioned come in double.

Majority of the time, I play heel down.

I've used Iron Cobra Powerglides for years and they work great.

You can find them used for under $250

Good Luck.

"....The DFP-9500D is a direct drive double pedal, with a solid cast link between the rocker shaft and the footboards. The direct drive "pushes" the footboards back on rebound, giving the pedal a quicker response. Many drummers that play heel-down prefer the feel of a direct drive..."

I have, and like, these pedals. They seem to meet your requirements and you can find them for $300 new, if you do a little digging.

I'd suggest trying them first though, to see if direct drive sits well with you.

For heel down, I wouldn't suggest a longboard. You'd require more effort to get the pedal moving, due to the fulcrum point being further back.

Pearl Eliminators, DW9000/5000, Iron Cobra or maybe the Mapex Falcon get my vote.

Up to $300 budget - I think the DW's, and the IC's are out of the picture. Not sure of the others.

You have to buy used to get under the $300 threshold
