Help identify pedals!

My BIL had a set of pedals and cleats given to him. Cleats appear to be SPD. Pedals use elastomer inserts fore and aft. Has three different insert sets, supposedly to change the retention force, each set is a differnet color. Two hex screws fore and aft hold the inserts. Pedals are doubel sided, needle bearings, appear to be fairly high quality. Sorry, don't have any pics/documentation yet.
These ring a bell with anyone?

My first thought is the Kore pedals. G.A.S.S. I think was the name. I think the Onza HO pedal used elastomer inserts too.

They do sound like Onza's and they are not a bad pedal. Only thing to make sure of is that you do not get the tread of the shoe stopping engagement of the cleat in the pedal. Easy enough to cut the tread if that is the case but knew this as a problem when I used them.

Remeber they act different in cold weather - years ago I crashed with the Onzas and woke up to my shoe being attached to pedal 30 yards away from me - thankfully I still had my foot - thank god I was not wearing SIDIs.

I do believe I saw Onza on the spindle. Thought it was a partial name. Off to Google...
Stapfam- wanna guess what kind of problem he's been having with them? I'll get out the Dremel tool.

Thanks all!

How old are these? I seem to remember something like these from the mid-90's.
