How much do you weigh? According to some people, the minimum release tension of SPD-SL pedals might still be too much for lighter folks. It's all a matter of relative perception I guess.

From Steve Hogg:

6. Different degrees of ease of entry and exit. As a general rule I won’t use Shimano Spd SL’s (which are a well made pedal) for women under 65kg or men under 60kg because the minimum release tension is too high for many of them and can cause knee niggles and occasionally injuries from repeatedly disengaging foot from pedal for those who are susceptible.
