The Gibraltar direct-drive or chain double intruder is $199 and are far better than those you listed.

Never had any issues with my P122TW. Except for one screw's cosmetic thread (correct me if that's not what it's called) coming off.

The gibraltar is built better. Better parts. You get a solid link or double chain, not a single like the other pedals. There are more adjustments and the whole pedal is stronger.

Reasons enough?

Um you get a double chain with the dw too. ive played the dws and tamas they are great intermediate pedals. I like my Iron cobras tho.

um... the DW400 isn't a comparision to the full IC. It's not that hot of a pedal. The Gibraltar OTOH, are directly comparable to the full IC.

The IC has some better features, but I am considering the price range as well.

Well it depends on which feel you like. The rolling glide has a smooth, linear action. it's one even, constant motion.

The power glide provides an accelerated action the closer the beater gets to the drumhead.

Jazz players tend to like the rolling glide. The more popular pedal (especially among metalheads and rockers) is the power glide.

Well im more of a metal player i guess and i want a smooth, constant action but at the same time something that makes a decent amount of noise....

It really is more about feel than musical genre anyway. Try them at a dealer.

There's so many posts like this it is worth searching through some responses. At this price the pedals tend to be very well made and so you seriously can just go for the pedal that feels/looks right to you. They have so much adjustment that any one of them will give you a fantastic pedal.
