Shadow Nostra Debate

Some people say they are great some people say the exact opposite. After talking to WTP I am having second thoughts. So tell me your experience. I'm not that hard on my pedals except for maybe some landings other than that I don't pedal grind so I kind of think I am safe because I hear they bend easily.

My friend was riding my bike and bent my Hamiltons so I got PCs. The shadows tend to loose pins at a rapid speed if you dont tighten the pins frequently.

I don't plan on running pins anyways.

I thought about Jim C's but I have reasons why I don't want them.

Shadows are crazy grippy, but I bent my spindle. Then I got plastics and there are mad grippy until the pins go away. But since they are only $15, they are worth it.
