Default Anyone tried these double bass pedals?

I'm planning on buying my first double bass pedal out of these ones and also I'll try some pedals at a local music store as well. If you had used any of these pedals, can I get a review of them? I know Musician's Friend has review functions, but I want to hear from you guys.

Yo dude, well i have played the Pearls P122 and the DW4000. My instant thoughts are go with the P122 however the P902 might just be as good. The DW always seemed really heavy and not very stable or responsive but it could be different for you depending on your preference. The Pearl is light and extremely responsive plus it is very adjustable. I was not far off selling my Iron Cobra to purchase one still on its factory settings and i love the IC. As for the others, i haven't tried them but i would say you definitely cannot go wrong with Pearly pedals, their entry level ones are outstanding. I hope this helps you out in some way.

The Taye pedals are the only ones of the group that have a beefier chain.

You won't get the workmanship or quality that comes with the Pearl though.

I would seriously check e-bay or craigslist! I bet if you really look you can find a set of Pearl Elims, DW 5000, Tama Ic's in that price range used.
