The pedal feels very light throughout the stroke, until just before impact. If I remember correctly Trick explains this as a result of the compression spring design, and it's supposed to be an advantage. But I like how Axis feels lighter and quicker than cam (chain) drive pedals without any unusual feel. I transitioned from Iron Cobras to Axis without a hitch.yeh a lot of people say there is a problem with the beater slowing before it hits the head on the trick
What were your first 2 cars?I can’t speak for Axis but I have had the Trick Pro1-V Bigfoot for about a month and I love it. Transitioned from 15 years on ICs. I contemplated this same choice for a loooong time. I finally made a list of things I wish my IC had/did and the Trick checked all the boxes. I have very limited experience on an A longboard, but it felt great. Axis is probably the safe choice. But man, I am loving my Tricks with no regrets (even though they cost more than my first 2 cars put together).
Lol. A Jeep Cherokee and an Oldsmobile. The first one was a gift that didn’t run so just had to pay a few hundred for parts. The second I bought for 500 and made it halfway home. Had to tow it the rest of the way and then pay another 3 to get it going.What were your first 2 cars?
To be fair, it really depends on how you have the pedals adjusted. The way I have mine, I don’t feel any extra resistance. I absolutely did at some settings however. This is why I said Axis is probably the safe choice.yeh a lot of people say there is a problem with the beater slowing before it hits the head on the trick
I love the idea of the trick but springs in compression will always feel like that imho. A tension spring has a lot more length of travel than the small trick compression spring.Another vote for Axis . I had a Trick Pro 1V but hated the compression spring . The Compression spring makes the feel get heavier the closer you get the beater to the head . This is fine if you are really pounding the bass drum but for feathering the bass drum or lighter playing it is not great .
I currently use an Axis A21 Sabre longboard pedal and love how easy it is to dial in the feel quickly with the variable drive lever . Axis pedals are well made and smooth .
