Speedplay Pedals. Recommended?

Hello everybody. I have recently converted to Time pedals. I had a set that I actually bought second hand and they soldiered on for years. When they finally bought the farm, I was happy to buy new Expresso 4 pedals. These seem to be have been designed to be disposable.

The cleats are made from cheese and are very expensive to replace. Now my right foot keeps popping out of the pedal. There seems to be no tensioning screw on the pedal.

I prefer lots of float so rather than buy more disposable Times, I was wondering about Speedplay? I would appreciate any reviews and comments before I decide. Are the exotic axles good only for weight weenies? My bike is steel so I'm not worried about a few grams here and there.

Thanks in advance.
