    Ankles may let you do a very quick burst of speed for a very short time, but you won't get the control and most likely wouldn't be able to hold it as long if you use your legs.
    that is correct. you've just prooved my point exactly. you don't have to have an Axis pedal to play fast. you just have to be a good drummer that has the ability and the technique down to play fast.

    1. Put pedals on floor.
    2. Put feet on top of pedals.
    3. Move feet up and down.

    Be sure to use the momentum of the pedal and the rebound of the beater to do your strokes. I find double bass to be easier with a large beater distance b/c when I put my foot on the pedal it already goes down a few inches.

    Try to make sure the beater gets off the head too after each stroke (dont dig it in, that will make you slower)

    The comfortable setting depends a lot on the gear. If the gear is good then you will have no problems with the setup. I own DWCP3002 and it's just great. Though it mostly for right-handed players.
    Maybe you should just pick something new? Or maybe check this best double bass pedals post? I hope you'll find what you need if you hadn't yet.

    I picture a 22 year old sitting behind his kit, his mind full of hope and wonder, waiting for an answer....

    ....now 35 with 2 kids, a home, a sedan and mini Van in the driveway, a wife that put on 35 lbs and a drum set that has been stored away for the last 11 years.
