I am very impressed with this practice pad. The feel of it is just like a real bass drum. It is also easy to setup and move around.
This is a great practice pad with a very realistic feel that is superior to the gibraltar. However, they were not designed to fit the wider baseplate of the axis pedals and you will have to modify the bd-10 to have the beater hit properly. Otherwise, the beater will hit the pad past the 90 degree mark... This will require adding rubber shims underneath the base of the practice pad and/or using an air powered cut off wheel to remove metal to make adequate clearance.
This pad feels so real that I took hardly any time to adapt to the feel of my real bass drum. I've also found that my comfortable speed limits for double bass have increased about 40 bpm since I got this (only two weeks!). This is a must have for any drummer, be it somebody looking to tear up the double bass kit or somebody looking to hone in their skills with their single pedal. This is an absolutely wonderful product. I've always shopped Pearl and I've never been let down.
Was everything I could have hoped for. Only thing I'll say is you have to keep checking up on most of the lugs and screws, but that is a small price to pay. I havn't played on anything that feels this real before.
