The Eliminator hat stand from what I've heard from a couple guys that have it, is that it's really smooth, and you can change the feel with the different cams.
They seem to dig it a lot.

I don't have the Elim hat stand, but I used it at the shop a few times and it felt really nice.

I have had a couple Eliminator single pedals for a few years and I really love them, so if it's as cool as the pedals, I'd say it's a thumbs up for the hat stand.

The only thing I could see in the design that could maybe be an issue, is that the legs stick out the front, away from the stand--depending on your other stands, it may pose a positioning problem...but since I haven't tried one on my kit, I can't say the legs are a problem.

I'm just going by the pics, and looking at the stand on the shop floor when it wasn't on a kit.

If they designed it that way, you'd think that if they made it that way, the legs are not a problem.
Otherwise, the leg design seems to keep the stand very sturdy.

Check one out at a shop before you invest if you can, but I don't think it'd be a bad purchase if you can't.
Nobody makes me bleed my own blood. Nobody!!

I bought an eliminator hi-hat cause I wanted to match eliminator double pedal. The feels on the pedal is really smooth and the stand is built to last.

I've got some trouble with the stand tough, first of all it's heavy. If you have to set up your kit often you might consider other brand, The major problem is that the rod (the one who connect the cymbals to the pedal) tend to loosen very often (I mean very often), I have to tighten the rod before each set (of 45 min) and sometimes the hi-hat fails before the end of the set and then you got those 2 cymbals closed for all the remaining song! very frustrating. I've had to screw the rod back and put some duct tape to prevent it from loosening.

I don't know if this apply to all eliminator hi-hat stand but if I had to buy a new hi-hat satnd i'd go elsewhere

I found the Iron Cobra hi-hat stand to have smoother action than the Pearl and slightly cheaper if i remember correctly. However i use the Pearl drop clutch and the rubber seat cup instead of the felt one that came with the Iron Cobra.
