I rode shimano's system before switching to egg beaters (515, 858, 959). I find the egg beaters
easier to find and lock-in. And, they hold better once locked-in while still letting me out when I
want to get out. Like everyone, I sometimes miss in tough situations and have had an easier time
keeping going with the egg beaters -- and finally getting locked-in
. IME, YMMV.
