I’m looking at a used Yamaha DFP880. Are you familiar with it? How does it compare to DW5000, Iron Cobra 600?
Master was great. A lot like the current 7210a. Slave was sloppy. I imagine a modern driveshaft would fix that, but it had too much play in it. I regret selling mine. Never had an ounce of trouble with that pedal.

Those were their top of the line pedals about 30 years ago. I wouldn't suggest getting a pedal that old, as the parts will generally show a lot of wear and won't play as smoothly as a newer pedal. If you do get it, be prepared to overhaul it and do some major lubricating and replacing the spring/hinges.
