They really are sweet - except for that part about actually paying for them. they have their good and bad points like anything else.

Good

Nice float
Light
Smooth and easy release

Bad

Replacement cleats are hard to find on short notice
Expensive - especially Record
A little tricky clipping in sometimes (no biggie really)

I've been running them for several years and wouldn't trade them for any of the other major systems at this point (SPD/Look/Speedplay/Time)

I was not impressed with the first generation. I had to return one (Chorus) because the mechanism would not engage. They certainly were light but the engagement felt sloppy. I went back to LOOK and the PP 396.

The second generation may be better.

I switched to the Record Pro-Fit's last summer after riding on Speedplay's for about 10 years. I love the wider plarform that the Pro-Fit's give me and I didn't have to sacrifice much weight for it. By the way I was able to pick mine up brand new on Ebay for about $80 less than retail. The pedal has really positve contact area and once clipped in you feel really secure. Besides they compliment the rest of my Record group well. Because of the wider platform and low weight I'll probably use these for the next 10 years. By the way did I mention who smooth the bearings are? Unbelieveable quality here too.

I can say w/ my 2000 Pro-Fits I've had nothing but good experience. It initially was a little tricky because cleat has to be flat against the pedal surface to engage properly, also the retention mechanism is a little tight at first. By rolling the foot outward slightly while stepping down your cleat will engage everytime. Pretty much second nature now. I give a complete and unreserved recommendation for Campy Pro-Fits. Yep.

I've been using Daytona pro-fits I got on ExcelSports.com for $69. I absolutely love this pedals. Great platform. Solid mechanism. Perfect float.

I've been riding Record profits since Nov of '99. It took mine about 500+ miles to 'loosen up' for easy entry and exit. Since then, I love'm.

FYI the plastic part of the cleat wears out rather quickly - about one per season. Use cleat covers (the Looks fit) to protect them. As a previous poster suggested, order the cleats BEFORE you need them. Not a lot of LBS's stock them.
