I've used Awlgrip and Griptex on a previous boat, and recently used the Interdeck in our cockpit after removing some treadmaster type material.
The Awlgrip/Griptex looked great but its nonskid characteristics were only moderately good, but it improved with time as some of the paint "wore" away.
The nonskid characteristics of the Interdeck is quite impressive, good on boots, shoes, barefeet whatever. It seems to be standing up well too, the only knock we have is that it's tough to keep clean if you're in a dusty/dirty area.
