Crank Brother Quattro vs Time Axion pedals

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Crank Brother Quattro vs Time Axion pedals

I am looking at getting some pedals for my frankenstein bike (second bike). With that bike I pull my kids around (son in a trailer and daughter on a trail a bike) and I also will ride on some forest roads (although not when they are muddy). We will stop at parks during the rides. Thus walking is very important and mud clearance is not important. I have road pedals on my Orbea Onix. I am also concerned about hot spots and I like float.

I am looking at either getting the Crank Brother Quattro pedals or the Time Axion pedals. The Axion pedals use the same mechanisim as the Time ATAC pedals, but they are one sided and have more of a platform.

I am looking for people's opinions on the pluses and minuses of these two pedals. I am especially interested in information from those who have actually used these pedals.

I'm not very happy with my Quattro's versus a couple years of riding LOOKS. The two sidedness of the pedal sounds better in theory than in practice. I've never found it very difficult to clip in to a one sided pedal (while road riding. of course mtb'ing is another matter).

I've never used the Times, but those are probably the next pedal i'm going to try. : )
