I am putting my Axis-A Twins back
together, again, over the weekend,
when I get back from the east coast.

They still are arguably the smoothest
pedals out there.

If you have not tried it - pull your
beater up to 40-degrees, pulling the
VDL all the way back towards you
and see the action. It is heaven.

I am hopeful that Axis will see the
inevitable truth, that the Uni-Clamp
has become a standard in beater-
angle adjustment and that they'll
come out with a retro-fit for all
of us, this new year.

i had a vruk and didn't like it and sold it. just another contraption. not needed to play double kick stroke. Axis is ok but i'll stick with my Trick big foot.

I just bought a Boa.... The best pedal I've ever used hands down. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't recall a major feature about this pedal ever being brought up and that is it has NO springs! It works off of the diving board concept. It's super smooth, stealthy quiet and very quick. What's really great about this pedal is when you buy the double pedal setup, you automatically get two singles out of the deal as well. Just place one of the beaters on the slave pedal which is virtually identical to the main pedal and you're good to go. There are tons of adjustments on this thing and they are all fairly easy to manipulate. I have an Axis Long board Double pedal and I love it! I gotta say though that the Boa has it beat and is really just an all around better pedal, long board or not!

The bad news is that they are currently out of production at this point and time. The store I was at (while attending Virgil's clinic in S.F.) just happened to have one and after checking it out I knew I had to have it. I've used it as a double setup and am currently using it on my double bass kit. Either way, it's awesome. And the real kicker, I paid $330.00 for it. I really like the way you can "FEEL" this unit. It doesn't just fall into the head as you have total control over the entire stroke.

My concern at this point is durability... And no, I have not had any problems as of yet but the spring-less boards scare me a little because if and when the integrity in the springy tension goes, it means having to get a whole new board... But so far, so good... Knock, knock.
