I use the DW5000 but you really need to try them out for yourself.

I concur with Mr 2b. You really need to try some. A blanket stetement like "they make DW and IC look like shit." may not help. For example, I have owned a DW 9000 double an Axis Longboard double, and an IC single. My favourite of these was the DW. Fast, responsive and reliable.
My second favourite was the IC. See above. I preferred the DW purely because to me it felt a better fit to my playing. Both were excellent examples of engineering.
The Axis I had may have been a rogue, I hope so, but it was the worst "high end" pedal I have ever played. The feel was not to my liking - which is fair enough, that's not why I think it's the poorest: the build quality was apalling. The thing shook itself to bits at every opportunity. The bolts began to rust quickly (and yes, I do look after my gear. My 93 Signia is still in superb condition) and the bearings didn't want to stay put.
I say all this purely to show that everyone's experience is going to vary, maybe a lot, maybe a little, so try out as many as you can. I am curently using a Gibraltar but as of next month will be using a DW again. I understand Scoreking wouldn't want one, and that's cool, just giving my opinon.

what do you qualify as good? what is your budget? personally i wouldn't buy either of those pedals that you listed. save up and get something better that you can keep for years to come.
