    i just got one a few weeks back. ive been adjusting this and altering that,but still find my slave beater comes to a stop sooner than the master. MASTER. MASSTUUR!

    the tension on both springs is pretty much the same and the beater angles are the same too.whats causing my pedal to act gimpy?

      I can't help but I thought I would just say I like the reference to MOP.

        could it be maybe your right pedal spring is broke in a little more than the left, its hard to say without looking at it, havent had any problems with mine. but i think the slave will always feel a little different. maybe try loosening(SIC) the right pedal spring and see what that does

          My yamaha double pedal does that too...I think double pedal technology just doesn't allow both to have the exact same feel yet.

            This is the same conclusion I came to. I don't have a double pedal, but 2 seperates and had the same problem.
            I just switched mine left for right, and it seems to be fixed for the most part.

            As you can't switch the pedals, try alternating the springs every so often, to keep even wear on the springs.

            I would keep them adjusted as close as posible to each other though.(maybe that's just me)

              I have a twin powerglide too, and i'm experiencing the same thing. I'm starting to get used to it actually. Anything to help would be good though.
              hmm....

                I think Pearl would probably appreciate this...
                Perhaps the problem lies in the fact that you didn't buy a Pearl Eliminator double pedal!

                            It's simply because there are more bearings that the left pedal has to transfer its power through before it gets to the beater, and hence, more friction. All double pedals will always do this until they invent 100% friction free pedals, which modern physics deems pretty much impossible.

                            Maybe one day they will have all shafts floating in a magnetic field? lol. That still wouldn't be 100% friction free, but it would be a lot closer.

                              Good theory, but...... In my post, I said I use 2 singles- and have had the same condition. I do agree that there could be more drag (friction), or weight from the extra linkage.
