I don't know if this has been discussed before but new to me.

I just came across this Canadian pedal builder through Anderton's Facebook post.
It looks like they have a good selection of pedals at premium prices so I would expect them to be good.

Any thoughts on these?

Yes heard of them, and have always wanted to try one... but wow they're expensive. @JHall55 has tried more than one.
Like I keep saying, pedals are not priced on the basis of how many parts they have, or what the maker believes them to be worth. They are priced such that, given the maker's production and marketing costs, any salaries they have to pay, and how many units they think they can make and sell each month, they can cover their rent, food, insurance, car payments, maybe a trip to a trade show, and disposable diapers for the baby. They work backwards from the total costs, and then figure out what a single pedal needs to sell for so they don't go in the hole.
