Default longest footboard

Hi friends.
I’m just getting started working on my heel-toe technique, and my pedal has an insufficient footboard length. What pedal (not too expensive) does have a longest footboard?
Thanks.

Long boards are 12" the industry standard

Play bare foot

Work at heel-toe with your current pedals. Slightly longer foorboards are not going to compensate for lack of practice. Playing barefoot is a good suggestion as well.

Your arguments aren’t convincing me. Besides the practice we need to upgrade our drum set.

I've heard of some people customizing there pedals into long boards. I don't know if you wanna harm your pedals though. Other then that i think your stuck with either the expensive axis pedals or a peal or drum workshop pedal that has the pedalboard that can extend. There is also the DW 5000 heel-less pedal for around $300 i think, im not sure.

The mapex falcon and tama speed cobra have slightly longer footboards than most regular pedals. But they're not a whole lot less than the cheapest Axis longboard.

By the way, my footboards are less than 10 inches, and I have no probems with heel-toeing.

play barefoot, i can get heel toe going pretty well on my eliminators. practice on whatever you have first and then if you still want to, buy some longboards.

I have recently compared the falcon and the speed cobra in a shop. the speed cobra appeared a bit longer than the falcon to me.

I have the very same prob with my yamaha fyling dragons (direct link). since I just bought it recently and I don't want to sell them already I have decided to bring them to a mechanical engineer, who a is good friend of mine.
He will make them longer for me by a couple of centimeters, and put the footplate back as tama does with the speed cobra.

Here is a pic from the pdf if it helps:
