Default Heavy Springs

I noticed the spring on one of my pedals was bent.

I replaced it with a really heavy spring and spent some time practicing with it today.
Now I can really feel it in the front of my leg - lower shin area. Like I've been lifting weights with it.
I think when I go back to a regular strength spring it'll feel like a feather - ha ha.

Good idea? or no?

Yea you might wanna switch back. For me, heavy springs make my pedals harder to play. (Especially with more tension). With regular springs, the higher the spring tension just makes it feel more "springy".

going back and forth between them may screw up your timing as you build muscle memory on how the heavier spring plays. I would put what ever spring on you intend to keep on and use it.

Yep - I'm gonna' switch it back. Too much tension on this one makes it hard to play.
