Rigging question

I am curious as to the benefits or drawbacks to an inskirt rigging or the drop plate rigging? I ordered my new saddle and opted to go with the drop plate and am hoping I made a good choice but just for the sake of knowledge I am wondering if I could get some pros and cons of both? Thanks! !

In the event the rigging is torn form the Skirt in in-skirt style the repair price is horrendous.

I love drop plate rigging, much stronger and if anything happens the plate is replaceable for a reasonable price

I was curious if a shorter cinch would be needed since the saddle I have now and am replacing has the inskirt rigging? Has anyone found that to be the case?
