Does anyone have any experience with these pedals and/or shoe combinations?

It seems that the ATACs with the 661 shoes should be perfect but I thought it would be best to ask peoples´opinions here before I spend $100+

I've followed this topic a lot here and I've concluded two things:

1. There are a lot of riders who have a strong personal preference for Shimano SPD's vs Mallets or Times, or visa versa.

2. Mallets vs Times is a toss up.

I ride the Time Z's with the 661's and see no reason to switch (I moved there from SPD's). I've been curious to try the Mallets but seems everyone I talk to thinks they're basically a toss up with the Times. I have read no strong argument for why the Mallets (or Times) are better. Just preference.

(The 661's are super comfy but not a hard core bike shoe. More like a skate shoe. I like 'em for the trails but I wouldn't race in them.)
