I personally like my string cinches. They have just a bit of give in them, where neoprene doesn't. Those fluffy wool cinches seem to like to slip and I don't even own one. Sister's three year old, which she works hard in the feedlot and out, at work(over 2800 cows, meaning lots of miles) would sore with her one neoprene cinch, she bought a Justin cinch- big thick felt, with kinda a neoprene bottom, and he is doing well on that one. I have never had a problem with anything soring from my rope cinches. My old guy sores from neoprene too, and that's one of the reasons I got away from it years ago. That being said, I did buy myself a neoprene a couple years ago and it has been a really good cinch.
I think it depends more on quality rather then material. A badly made rope cinch is just as bad as a crappy neoprene cinch. I would recommend either a mohair string cinch ( personal fave) or a good quality neoprene. Just depends what you do with your horse.
