Good as the Straitline's may well be, £100 on a set of pedals that you're going to smash into rocks and the like seems totally ridiculous to me. They also look a little dainty, and a bit too girlie if you ask me.
My Easton Flatboy's may not be the last word in slimness, lightweight or ease of pin replacement, but by god they're tough! They've shrugged off years of abuse and all sorts of smashes into massive rocks. Certainly the cranks would bend before anything on the Flatboys gets damaged!
Anyway, there's loads of decent flat pedals for well under half what the Straitlines will cost (though still more than some cheap V8's or copies etc.), and you'd be far less upset if they got scratched/scraped/damaged when it comes down to it! Those Wellgo MG1's do look a killer deal in particular.

I was just looking at Easton Cullys too, they look pretty good. They have grub screw pins, but any opinions on these?
Just saw this after I'd hit post.
BIG thumbs up. Have the Flatboys myself, which essentially are a slightly wider and less shaped Cully (or the cully is a narrower more shaped Flatboy). Easton pedals are tough as old boots, know people who've destroyed all sorts of other pedals smashing them into rocks and the like, and who now pretty much exclusively use Easton pedals.
