I'm looking suggestions for a set of clipless pedals.

I've only just taken up MTBing in the last month or so and although I've spent money on a decent (and proper) bike money is a bit tight so I'm going down the 'budget' or 'entry level' route where possible for pedals.

I don't really know much about the different types but as above they need to be clipless and I'm pretty certain I want ones with metal pins. As it stands I wear my old Asics running shoes with the inserts taken out which means I'm not losing pedalling power through the absorption in to the padding plus the soles are pretty much flat. They are comfortable and seem to work so I'm not looking to change shows and the pins on my standard pedals seem to grip them ok, I'm just looking for a set that will give me somewhat increased grip.

TIA

Have a look at Dmr V8s on eBay, should be able to get a decent set fairly cheap. For me they are a good compromise for price and performance.

+1 for the V8's

I got a new pair cheap from CRC, that I use for muddy, icy and snowy conditions.

Wellgo MG1 Magnesium Flat Pedals

had a set on my cube for the past 2 years and can't fault them

superstars are in a different league to the V8's

Also, clipless pedals is usually a term used to describe SPD type pedals. If you are looking for pedals you dont need to clip into then flat pedals is what you are looking for.

I'd have to recommend the Shimano Saint pedals.

I've found them spot on on a couple of bikes.
