Default whats the diff between DW 8 and 9000 pedals and hi hat stands

can anyone give some real insight into the diffs. i can see some cosmetic stuff like the obvious foot plates. and mechanical like the linkage on the 9000 hat stand, and the springs being inside the posts on the 9000. anyothers and what do they contribute to the pedals.

9000 uses a floating cam rotor. The drive shaft uses bearing to reduce friction and makes the pedal incredibly smooth. You should try both in person though to see personally which one you prefer.

Don't know if you've seen this comparison chart on DW's website but here is some info

http://www.dwdrums.com/hardware/comparepedals.asp

looks like the only real difference is the floating rotor?

right well i went for the 9000 got it bout a month ago now i guess actually a month today, just looking back the bag of 'accessories' for each pedal have some stuff in there im sure on the majority but 1 part i dont know, im guessing it could be a hoop protector? its that strip of black with the yellow sticky sided cover. also have toe stop and 'mounting hardware' allen keys etc.
