anyone tried power grips for skidding?

okay, so my spd strapless pedals/shoes are annoying because I have to use them to ride (which makes errand rides really annoying). And after trying toe straps several times I know that they are not an option for me (I can never get my feet out in time to stop myself from falling).

So I'm at my whits end and am tempted to try those power grips (http://www.rei.com/product/609173) that everyone is talking about. But before I do I was just wondering what people (specifically fixie riders) think of them? And has anyone used them for skid stopping (pretty much the only way I stop) how do they work out?

Thanks for the input,

on a side note - does anyone know where the BFF in DC will be at?
