RE: the Aeffects feeling bigger, I think it's those angles on the outboard edges of the new Atlas vs the more squared footprint (pun semi-intended) of the Aeffect, maybe even more than the overall width. I recently grabbed some Spank Spikes to eventually replace my almost-3-years old last-gen Atlases*. They have a similar angle from the center to the leading and trailing edges and I definitely notice it vs the Atlas, despite the listed platform sizes being very close. In fact, taking a quick look, the Spikes are a couple mm wider overall, but the Atlases are more than a few mm wider at the leading and trailing edges,. I can definitely feel those few mm, especially on the leading edge. \* (And they have only experienced the lateral play issue, which I fixed it by filing about 0.5mm off the end of each axle so that the outboard bearing stack is actually held snug by the fixing bolt.)
