Default Which double bass pedal?

I was just thinking of buying a new double bass pedal, as my old one is starting to rust quite badly, i like playing heel toe stuff and was wondering which pedal would be good for heel toe apart from axis pedals (as these are wayyy to expensive for me) i was looking at some tama iron cobra's, eliminators and dw5000 maybe as these are in my price range more than the axis pedals

Any feedback would be great
Many thanks
Ryan

You should search before you post =]

For heel toe, I have a Tama HP-200 Twin pedal which cost me 80 bucks used and it works pretty good. The foot board is very big, so it is good for heel toe. People say that the eliminators are the best pedals for double bass.
I would say go for the eliminators because you're not going to use heel toe for everything.

Ever seen the price of the Trick Pro-V1?

I walked an Axis AL-2 out of Guitar Center for $390. Which isn't such a huge stretch away from new set of IC's or dragons.

A little determination goes far in the sales world...

The DW 5000, the Pearl Elim. and the Tama IC all seem to hover in the $329-359 price range new. The Yamaha Flying Dragon seems to have the largest price spread, from $239-412 new. Heel-toe, as a technique, should be able to be executed on almost any pedal. What's most important is that you get your feet on as many pedals as you can, and decide which feels best "to you". My money went into Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct Drive pedals. I own 2 single pedals. When I need to play a double pedal, I have the Off-Set pedal system http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u...4-3415_IMG.jpg , a center pedal design. And soon, I'll be the proud owner of a Yamaha FP 810CD, to make my 18" Luddie foor tom into a "cocktail" kick.

Taye's got a new pedal that's been making some waves. I've never tried it, but It won best in show at this years NAMM. Metalworks
