What's the best pedal for long distance touring with Power Grips?

Not Power Grips, but a similar idea that I have used for touring with.

Work well with all pedals but I prefer them with a nice MTB platform

One of TA's sealed bearing pedals, OK, cost is 5X MKS, but you did say "Best".

I too had decent luck with MKS sylvan tourings and power grips...

But these days I'm running BMX plats naked while I contemplate adding a set of hold fasts.
