Yeah I'd stay away from that particular DW, it's kind of their entry level pedal. I couldn't tell which model pearls those were but if you've played them and liked the way they feel I'd go that route. I'm sure there will be guys chiming in with other pedals they think you should buy, I'll add some suggestions if you like but between those two since you say you've played the pearls and like them I'd go with those. As far as feel that's really a subjective thing, do I think if you stepped up in DW's line to say a 5000 would it feel better, to some yes to others no.

thanks for the advice!
iwas going for either a 7000 or a 5000 originally, but if i bought that i would have no money for a china or a rack.
the pearl seemed good, but both the dw and the pearl are lower models. would a dw lower model pedal be any better than a pearl lower model pedal?

I'd say it's a wash, if it were me, I'd forgo the china and invest in a better pedal, that can make the most noticeable difference in your playing, and actually can help cut down on fatigue in your leg as a nicer pedal is more efficient to play.
