best platform pedals?

i went back to my primo super tenderizers and i think the curved surface of the pedal tends to make my knees hurt. are there any non-curved pedals with as good a grip as the primo's?

i should include a price limit of $50.

If your knees hurt then consider adding a pair of "knee savers" to a pair of these grippy platforms
from Nashbar. I've got double knee replacements that hurt like hell with any other pedal combo.

The pedal I use........

IMO- Shimano mx-30 are the best,
their $100 is their only draw back.
Have used my set during all seasons for the past three years,
previously I'd worn out a set of other brands about once a year.

Rivendell designed some platform pedals built by MKS. They are designed to fully support the entire forward portion of the foot, and built to MKS standards...high quality materials and bearing.
