1) Have some patience.
2) Primo Tenderizer pedals are alright, but the pins wear down rather quickly and aren't easily replaceable; Snafu pedals are awful, they have very little grip and then pins, although replacable, have to be removed with pliers because they thread in from the top rather than underneath (like Atomlab Trail Kings and Odyssey Jim Cs).

The Jim Cs are nice. I have the Southgates, they are also nice and I have had them for a while with no problems. And learn better pedal placement for what ever trickws you're doing and you'll bust up your pedals less.. I used to think that busting all my parts off my bike meant I was a "hardcore" rider.. and then I reallized that it costs alot of money to be "hardcore" so I started getting my pedals out of the way of things and landing lighter..
