Default Used Pearl P-2000 or New Tama Iron-Jr

I'll admit ahead of time that I am a new drummer but I am trying to replace some things on my cheap Coda drum set (hopefully just my learner for now) in order to enjoy it more. I was planning on purchasing a new Tama HP200 Iron Cobra -Jr from SamAsh for 60 dollars but I locally found a used Pearl P-2000 (approx. 2 years old) in excellent condition for 60 dollars as well.

Here is the picture of the older Pearl:

The NEW Tama:

Which is the better pedal? Thanks!!

the second link is not a tama pedal

if you meant this http://www.samash.com/catalog/showitem.asp?ItemID=11526 then i would go for this rather than old and used pearl which by the way doesnt look like an eliminator.

That's the correct Tama, I must of put in the wrong link.

Thanks for the suggestions.

For what it's worth, the older Pearl pedal looks a lot like the one Ari Hoenig used at Blues Alley in Washington, DC last month during a performance with "Punk Bop".

That's an old P-100, not a 2000. I used to have one, good pedal. The feeling is a bit lighter than the Iron Cobra Jr; but they're both actually pretty good pedals. I owned a P-100 for a long time and it was really excellent.

Actually, I ended up not getting the Tama pedal and went with a Pearl P1000. I found a local store that had them both and found the P1000 felt much better. I am happy I changed at the last minute, plus I got a good deal on a NEW Pearl. I liked the belt much better than the Tama chain.

Thanks for all the help!
