Pro-Fit vs. Time Impact(2 posts)

Pro-Fit vs. Time ImpactWild Bill

I am looking for a new pedal system.
I used SPD for a couple of years and switched to the R system.I used the R system for a month and hated it!
I then switched to Speedplay. I have been using them for two years now.
I would like to try something different like the Record "Pro-Fit Plus" or the Time "Impact".
I would like to know all about these two pedal systems from riders who actually use them!
Thanks to all.
I like my Pro-Fits. Never used Time, so, can't compare, butbill

I had Looks and prefer the Pro-Fits. Record Pro-Fits are triple sealed and smooth, smooth, smooth. The retention system also is kind of cool; they never have unhooked under pedaling stress and always have unhooked in a panic situation. Apparently, they are designed to hook that much more strongly under normal pedaling stress and to unhook that much more readily under abnormal stress. According to Grzy on this board, if I understood him correctly. I also felt that the platform was more stable than Look.
Is there really that much difference or is what I think I felt a product of wanting Record to be better than middle-line Look (236)? Can't answer that.
