Which one is better? And what the hell does knurling on the platform do?

I only rode the odyssey and they're nothing special but everyone else likes them so I'd try them out.

Knurling slightly increases grip, but I don't like knurling because it leads to more dirt sticking on your pedals.

Metals ftw.

I never rode the Stranger pedals, I'm currently riding some Twisted PCs because my LBS didn't have Fly ones when I passed by and they are alright, they lasted me quite a while and over all grip pretty good, they feel small to me though.
At first I didn't dig them at all but I got used to ride them.
I get Fly Ruben PCs instead, they aren't as strong, specially the axle but they feel really good.

So which one seems better? Rubens are out of budget atm

I don;t really like the shape of the strangers too much.
If you have smaller feet than an 11.5 then go for the Odysseys for sure.

honestly they are all pretty much the same as far as life as concerned. they all wear out fast or crack/break. stolen thermalites feel good though. nice and wide w/ knurling feels great.

I'm on the vital legit list!

This is for sure, I rode Shadow ones and I enjoyed them, I found that they wear down pretty easily but that was in my pedal stall period so don;t know about that.

Let me know how they are, I'm actually curious, I really like Stranger as a brand.
But yeah Twisteds are pretty tuff.

Twisteds are the only pedal I ride now. I swear by them. I've tried others but none compare to the grip and strength of Odyssey Twisteds.
