Plastic Curry vs. Rubber Curry

I use both, I prefer the rubber but my TB gets a bit of a sway back sometimes when I use a rubber curry even though I think it is more gentle then the plastic one.

Whats everyones opinions on these things? What do you prefer?

Your horse is an extension of you.

I use rubber and metal currys depending on the extent of the dirtiness. I prefer rubber but if the horse has dried mud caked on their legs and belly, I'll gently use a metal curry to get the majority of it off, then switch to the rubber curry for the remainder.

Yes. My answer is yes.
I use whichever curry type device I happen to get my paws on first. Sometimes it is the grooma, sometimes it is a cheap-o plastic model, sometimes it is the rubber type with the little teeth on the edge.

I mainly always use the rubber. I'm not sure if I even own a plastic one.

I also have a metal one, to gently scrape off mud, if it's really caked on.

I only use a rubber or metal one as the others above have mentioned.
