I'm with Tak, I'm about to swap out the pedals on my new Nimbus 29 for old, plastic slippery ones because the pins just trap me in awkward positions, and I'm not yet stable enough to adjust them well. And my static mount is still coming along-I don't land on the pedals just where I want each time, and I need to adjust my position.
Current status: slip=good thing.

My Nimbus 24" came with plastic pedals that were OK. Early on, though, I changed them to a set of metal pedals with rubber tread that I bought at the LBS where we lived because I was having problems with the pedals being too narrow.
Eventually I got frustrated with these when I started learning to free mount because one of them was mis-weighted and would always spin so that the pedal was vertical when I tried to step up. These also had very little grip, but all I was doing was riding around town, so that was OK.
So I went through 2 more sets of plastic pedals as I started going off-road. I rode with the odyssey twisted pedals for quite some time before deciding that they were not quite grippy enough.
My 24" is actually now using the metal-pinned pedals from the 29" Tak mentioned above. I think about half the pins are removed. (He's riding the 29" with the odyssey twisted pedals; we switched them as an experiment). I find them annoyingly grippy when I mount and don't step on the pedal right (sometimes I can move my foot, sometimes I have to get off and start over). But once I'm riding, I find them invaluable on the trails.
I think it's likely that we will by another set of metal-pinned pedals soon so that both the unis have them.
