Default Should I upgrade pedals?

I'm currently using the Pearl P-122TW and they were pretty good for a while but they have started to bother me. The slave pedal is like harder to press down then the main one even if i change the spring tension. Right now I made the spring tension the same so when i hold them up to the head and let go they move at the same time but the left beater stops moving in like 2 seconds and the one of the right keeps going for a while. Is it supposed to be like that?

If I upgrade to Iron Cobras or axis pedals will it still be like this? And is there really a big difference between more expensive pedals like iron cobras or dw 9000's compared to my current pedals since they both aren't longboards and they are both chain driven?

Those pedals should be pretty solid. Sounds like the bearing nut might be too tight. I would try loosening them up, then re-tightening until theyre just snug.
Either that or maybe bring them back to where you got them and see what they have to say.
