Who makes a superior Footswitch and, more importantly, is this a Mod worth doing if your not stomping the hell out of your assumed above quality pedal to begin with?

Mammoth Electronics and plenty of others sell "Pro" 3PDT switches that are rated to 1000+ stomps. Unless you are literally steamrolling it, that should do the trick.

EDIT: To your second question- "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Are you expecting to have the footswitch improve the sound? If so, :bonk

What pedal are you considering replacing the footswitch in?
Different companies utilize different switches (for instance, Boss is not the same as Fulltone).
Even if you are referring to a standard 3PDT switch, there are different styles - some have solder lugs, while others attach directly to the circuit board.
Any of the reputable parts suppliers (Mammoth, Small Bear, etc.) offer quality 3PDT switches.
Is it worth doing? Perhaps. Is your current switch broken? Do you gig / tour and simply want to perform some preventative maintenance?
If your soldering chops are good, it's generally easy but you can really mess stuff up if you don't know what you are doing.
