Default Bass Pedals

I am back at drumming after a long absence and would like to experiment with some different pedals.

I am using Ghost pedals made before Ludwig bought them. The Ghosts are strong, but not as fast as I think a pedal can be. I think there has to be some really good pedals out there now better than what I have.

Can I get some recommendations and reviews of pedals? I would like to go with a single pedal for now.

Tama Iron Cobra is a great pedal, I own one. I've also played an eliminator, dw 5000, higher end Yamaha, they are all great pedals. I had to settle on one so I chose the IC. No particular reason, they are all very playable just the same. Any of these would serve you well. If there are any differences they are slight, any of these bad boys will do the job. Don't fuss all three are very popular, durable, playable and highly praised. Just depends who you want to give your money to. Tama, pearl dw yamaha?

I've always used pedals that had a solid foot board, instead of the two piece with the heal. I suppose having a split board gives a place to rest the heal, but having the solid board gives a different angle to the foot board. When I was in Sam Ash a few weeks ago I was able to fly quickly with a two piece board. The pedal has always been a mystery coupled with experimentation with me.

I like the fact that DW uses a cam to change the force throughout the stroke, do other manufactures also use a cam now?
