Default Yamaha Fp9415 vs 9500D direct drive pedals

Anyone compared the older style direct drive pedals to the new ones? I know the new 2 way beater on the new one for many has been a turnoff and usually switch to a regular round beater. Other than that feel and function??

I've owned them both..personally I like the new one better...never cared for the clamping mechanism on the old one...mine had a tendency to pop up sometimes..also like the height on the back plate of the new one better as well (a little higher up on the 9500..feels better to me)..as well as the overall look and finish on the new pedal..the only problem with both of them for me is I like a little longer footboard, hence the reason I didn't keep them (however, I am considering the 8500)....as far as speed goes, both are very fast pedals and I like the feel and action on them better than other direct drives I've tried (and owned - Axis)...good luck whichever way you go...

I love the quick release clamp on my 9310.

Where were you able to find the 9415? I want one but can't find a place that has any left.

Yeah that's why I'm asking. Found one last month for $95 at lonestar percussion and got it for a new kit I ordered for church they are out of them now :-( So that's why I'm asking, they have a decent price on the newer model.

Bueller, Bueller??

Anyone else have any insight on the comparison of the two.

Have to say I do like that quick release clamp on the 9415.
