I can't vouch for the Ludwig pedal but the Iron Cobra is rock solid, well made and feels good. I haven't heard anyone say their IC has fallen apart no matter how much they play it.

Go for the Iron Cobra. I see dozens of professional drummers using them on tour, in clubs, etc. I have never seen one professional drummer, even one who endorses Ludwig, using Ludwig pedals.

On top of which, I have not seen a drum company with less innovation in its hardware line over the past ten years than Ludwig.

This would be a no brain er decision for me, the Iron Cobras. I bought my IC Power glide pedals a year and a half ago, and although I really don't use double bass very often, I've never had a problem with them. In fact, I own three Iron Cobra pedals and the material and workmanship on the pedals are great. Another great pedal I would recommend is the Yamaha double chain/belt drive, but I'm not sure that comes in a double version since I use the single.
