Oops...just saw this...I was referring to the VDL adjustment at the front hinge of the pedal..sorry if that wasn't clear..adjusting the VDL allows for a different feel to how the beater strikes the head...I've just been over to the Axis website and had a dig around. Look like interesting pedals for sure.
I cant see how the hinge by the heel can be moved up the footboard though, but, the longboard ones have a small overhang at the back that I reckon I could easily extend with a few minutes on the drillpress and tap and die set.
Personally the A series looks a little over-complicated for me...I like having less adjustments to worry about so the X seems a better fit.
It's a shame there's literally almost zero UK distributors to go and try before I buy though.
As for the refurbed SKs, I hadn't considered that much, Ill go have a look into it now.
