I'm on team "max grip."  The last couple years I've been riding Impact Pros, which are both super grippy, protective, and fit my flat feet well.  Current pedals are Tenet Occults (6 months use), which are even grippier than the OneUps I was on before that.  I don't race, and don't consider myself especially coordinated, so clips are never going to happen.  But I am very particular about my foot position on the pedal, which is the biggest downside to "max grip."  However, what I've found is that even if the position feels funny, with the "max grip" setup I can have my foot in pretty poor position and trust that I'm not going to come off in the bumps. I'm sure I'm jinxing myself, but I haven't had so much as a scratch from pedal pins in the last couple years.  I frequently got those as a beginner, but as I got better about dropping my heels and switched to the Impact Pros, it stopped happening.
