For me Axis Pedals are amazing! I'm often asked by other drummers advice about other pedals and I can honestly say I've not touched any other pedal in over 25 years so I can't tell you anything about any pedal other than Axis.
I always travel with a pedal and I don’t have a favorite it just depends on what I grab at the time.
I've taken my Axis X Longboard Single out on tour, my first Axis A Single pedal from 1996 and more recently my Derek Roddy Signature A21 single. On one of my main kits I use the Axis Dock O Matic on the 22" and 18" bass drums and the Axis A Longboard Single Pedal just drops in place and I love that! What I love about my pedals is that no matter what one I use they are all consistent in feel, speed and power.
