Big boards for big feet?

  • Big boards for big feet?

    I´m trying to explore the heel-toe technique. But the board on my pedal - a Sonor P433 - seems to short. Would appreciate help from you guys (and girls).
    I should mention so far my feet doesn´t like Tama pedals.

    My foot size is 44 (28 centimeters) - think that´s the same as 10,5.

    Thanks in advance!

    that's what i thought about Sonors too..
    i can't do ball/toe and removing the toe-stop
    didn't help either, so..
    just an idea : buy Axis footboards separate and fuse
    two pedals, i only had to drill/thread 1 hole in the base,
    be sure it's straight at the strap/chain.

      I nearly went for that myself. I eventually bought the Axis A pedal as it had the variable drive lever which is very cool indeed. Good work there though. Are you pleased with it? Has the extra 2" made a difference to the way she feels?

        Thanks Eric for the advice! I don´t think I´ll go that way though. Shame, I really like the Sonor. Axis longboards are too much for my wallet right now.

        I might check out Sonors Giant step instead, anyone who can give some input?
        Or Pearl or Yamaha.

        Then there are other brands I´m unfamiliar with, like Tye, or Gibraltars pedals.

        It´s a jungle out there

          the sonors are really smooth.. axis footboards can be bought separate..
          yes, the length made a difference, i can get 'even' heelstrokes now,
          i was used to long boards, so i just 'had to do this'..
          If you have the patience to learn "ball/toe", check-out "matthias dangel"

          i think i'll just stick to heel-toe.
