The hex shaft and rocker appear to be stripped on my Ludwig Atlas Standard pedal s the beater won't stay in position. I already have an Atlas Pro double pedal I practice on but I'm looking for something to travel with that is preferably lighter weight if I ever need to move my kit. I don't know if I want to wait for the new Speed King to be released or get the Sonor Perfect Balance. I'm thinking a direct driver or strap is preferable. I definitely want control over speed since I don't really play fast stuff.
