you read the title. what is your view? My choice is the pearl eliminator personally. I put them side to side in a drum shop, and, i thought there was no comparison. But, let's hear from you.

I quite like both, but I own an Iron Cobra, so I'll go with that. It just seems more rugged, and the power glide gives me a ton more power and punch than the elims do, even though I do like the elims quite a bit too.

Well, If I had the choice, I'd go with a DW 9000, but out of the two, I'd pick the Eliminator. From what I've seen, it holds up better than the Cobra, or at least the Cobra that I owned.

from what ive seen the cobras are used more by metal drummers... i dont know why but here in hicksville everyone wants the cobras and wont even think of the eliminators... i have a double eliminator and its so sweet... but yea... eliminators no question about it...

Thrash metal drummers definatly use the corbras more, not by a little, but overwhelmingly. I wouldn't recomend anything DW, they have a tendancy to snap the chain, the chain connection, and even the footboard right and half. the DW 9000 and 5000's foot plates are identicle too. They don't have any support ribs underneath the pedal etc. And to be honnest, I'd go with the corbras, although you can't go wrong with either one really, they are both great pedals. If you have the money, go axis. =)

I've never played any of them for like a long time to determine which is better but if I were to choose upon looks, I'd go with ANY of the Pearl hardware. They just look superior and are great in terms of durability.

DW does have a weak link thier pedal borads. They may be smooth but if your a hard hitter, they be unreliable. I'm a IC power glide myself. The Elims. just seem to be a bit unresponsive to my feet, just not as quick as my cobras. Then again, I didnt set them up to my liking and I'm used to the cobras.

Wierd, my DW 9002 has outlasted my old Cobra by at least a year, and I never even gigged with the Cobra.

being gay is the most socially unacceptable of the 4. that's why the statement "that's gay" works.

NO MORE!!!! i shouldn't of done this. about pedals......

i have iron cobras with the axis driveshaft linkage upgrade and they effing rule. but if you have the money go with the black axis longboards. they make me drool.

pearl is just so much better. Period. Anyone who thinks cobras are better. Line them side by side, and play. It'll turn anyone to elims.

I was all in on the axis pedals until I realized how far back I let the beater and footboard rebound before I start another stroke. They get to far back and it gets past the point that the direct drive goes vertical and I have to push it over the "hump" to get it to go on the full stroke. Does that explination make any sence?

I have owned an Iron Cobra, and have played Eliminators. My choice is the Iron cobra. I think both pedals can reach the feel you want. It comes down to durability, and i never had a problem with my Iron Cobra, but my friend says if he plays for a while his pedal starts to loosen itself(could be due to him) So personally i like the Iron Cobras more.
