Whats the best and why?

Depends on what your like & how hard you are on pedals
A pegless park or dirt rider that doesnt do pedals grinds = sealed metal or plastic
Pegs & does pedals grinds = unsealed metal or plastic

Well it depends.
PC pedals are cheaper but less durable, some people like the feel of them better.
They're also not as harsh on your shins.

Metals are more durable, have interchangeable pins (not all, and yes there are PC pedals with metal pins, JCPCs)
They also have a more solid feel.

Sealed is always better than un sealed so if you got the money get some, the only issue with them is cost.

I prefer plastic simply because of the amount of pedal grinds I do. When you have a brand new set of PC's, you can pedal slide the roughest of ledges with ease. I used to have metal pedals with the pins taken out of one side, but once you grind them down enough they start to stick.

I've rode trailmixes, they're pretty cool, I wore the pins down grinding they aren't my favorites. I got Macneil metal pedals now and they're good, grip well, light etc.

PC. Metal is just too grippy for my liking and makes me feel locked into my bike which i don't really care for.

JCPCs are a model not a type.
They are produced by Odyssey.

I'd love to get some Macneil Slipnot pedals, because Macneil is sick and the name is a spoof off my favourite band, SLIPKNOT devil

Yeah, I've rode unsealed PC pedals all my life. I've tried some unsealed metal ones and sometimes they catch on grinds and I've ate shit before using them. Unsealed or sealed doesn't matter until you've used the pedals forever and you can tell the bearings are going out or whatever.
