Probably the greatest benefit for using metal barrels at a race! It may save you 5 seconds.

Nothing like hitting a barrel and having the thing right itself anyway, the metal ones are good for that!

I'm like the rest.. Plastic barrels at home, metal when showing. I have been to a few local shows and association shows that use plastic barrels though. Personal/arena preference I guess. Hell we used to have the big orange plastic traffic barrels to practice with, we now have big plastic blue barrels.
