you have a pearl power shifter troll??
i've read some personal reviews on iron..and so far those who have it complained of the right pedal being smoother than the left due to some spring tension problem..!!
does the power shifter come with a case?? like the iron cobra??

eliminator comes with a case!!
dunno about the powershifter i'd say so...
yeh the tama's are too 'hard' and u cant give them a light, smooth feel
and the beater isnt very compatible
eliminator is the ultimate pedal

in terms of performance pearl and tama pedals are almost the same but for functionality pearl won a mile in my end.
