i'm gettin a little more aggresive on the bike and notice that my feet are twisting "too much" for my liking. its not my foot clipping out just twisting in the pedal

i do have problems with my joints so a little bit of float is good but i would like to reduce what i have at the moment.

i have shumano spd pedals and shimano shoes with shimano cleats

cheers

    nope, but a different pedal and cleat system might give less.

    I'm pretty sure Shimanos have adjustable float don't they? There's an Allen key bolt you can fiddle with, which I think deals with float.

    The one at the bottom of the pedal (there's one on each side to do each side of the pedal). Give it a go maybe?

    No. That adjusts spring tension, how hard you have to work to engage/disengage the pedals. Float's fixed on SPDs.
