Default Axis al-2 double pedal drive shaft.

Hey guys I am aiming this question at people who own this pedal but if you know tha answer or have has experience with it then your thoughts are welcome.

I am soon going to be ordering these pedals but i am possible conserned about the drive shaft linkage. From what I understand the length adjustment is completely round instead of the usual square or hexagonal taper and I am woryed that it could slip out of place if not tightened properly. Has anyone had this problem? if it is something I should be worried about I will get tha trick big foot or pearl deanon drive.
Thanks
James

I have the Axis drive shaft on my double pedals, and it has never slipped. I do make shure the bolts are tight before a show. But when you are playing with a backline drum set and the bass drum is in a weird angle, and you can't really move it because it has a mic in the port hole and too many stands around the drum to move, it's a pain to adjust the drive shafts length to compensate for the weird angle. It's really hard to get the slave pedal height right because it is round.

I just bought a set of axis al-2's and had this exact problem, im a bit of a heavy stomper and the slave pedal slipped on the drive shaft constantly. all i did was mark out exactly where i wanted my slave positioned and the hieght of the foot board, i then pulled the thinner inner drive rod and drilled a 1/4 inch hole in it about 1/8 of an inch deep slid the rod back in, sunk the set screw into the hole i had made, a little red loctite added and problem solved. my drive shaft is rock solid now ;)
