Switch to clipless for all mountain?

As of right now I ride crankbrothers 5050xx pedals and 510 sam hill shoes for my all mountain riding. My location provides me with trails that vary from big climbs to pretty intense downhill so my riding style is more all mountain. I am training to get into 50 mile races in the next 3 months and I am thinking of switching over to clipless for more consistency in my pedal stroke even though i am slightly wary of the change. I guess i am more or less curious as to what other all mountain riders use for their pedals and shoes. I am considering getting shimano XTR 985 pedals and sidi dom shoes. Anyone have any suggestions? should I stick with the flats for my training or definitely make the change over and save my flats for when I hit the trails and try new areas?
