Also SPD's have always had 6° of float.
Do you have a link that says that? I checked several listings and... They all said that SPD as 4 degrees and SPD-SL as 6 degrees.
Note that both real Shimano and Wellgo list 4° of float for non SL models which are a different product entirely.
I just checked the QBP web site and you are correct that they list 4° of float for both Shimano and Wellgo pedals. However, having used both, I can assure you Shimano pedals have more angular float then Wellgo's.
I wonder if Shimano's have +/-4° of float for 8° total? They certainly have more than Wellgos and that's the only explanation I can think of.
And yes, I'm well aware of the difference between Shimano's MTB pedals and their "SL" road pedals.
