Platform pedals

I ride about half and half clipless pedals and platform. I will put the platform pedals on for anything that I think will have some big drops or fast but technical downhills. I was wondering for those of you who run platform pedals what kind you ride.
I currently have primo tenderizers but I don't find they grip that well, the pins are a pain to replace and they are pretty big. I have some wellgo BMX pedals I was thinking of putting on, but what do you guys suggest?

I run Da Bomb Naplams, very cheap and i find they grip really well especially on jumps/ Drop offs. I too, tried to attach my mosh bmx pedals to the MTB but most BMx are 1/2" thread, whereas the MTB crank thread is 9/16", this was my mine problem.

I think I will try wellgo's for a while and see how it goes, and if they don't do it for me get some crank bro's 50/50s.

These are what I run..



I love them! Studs provide lots of grip, the width of them is great..

But then again, each to their own.

Primo Meat Tenderizers. I have been in love with them for years. Concave and sticky, I use them for DH and DJ... and they don't cost alot of dough.

but useless with the stock pins. I ended up grabbing some aftermarket pins from my LBS.
