Do these pedals have free float the same as the Speedplay X pedals? What advantage do the Zero pedals have compared to the X pedals?

Zero's have free float like the X's but unlike the X, the Zero float is adjustable (between 0-15 degrees). You can individually adjust the amount of inward and outward rotation on Zero's where as X float is fixed. The cleat on the Zero's also seems to be a bit more robust. I don't think they are worth the price difference but to someone who would prefer to have a little less float than the X (I ride X1's so I may be biased) and values the ability to adjust it to individual whims, they may well be.
Zeros will not pull out on track sprints.Quack

I've heard that the zeros were designed for track racing because all other pedal systems were insufficient to hold the sprinters. Very strong riders were able to tear right out of SPD, Look, SPD-R, etc. on the track.
