Default Servo gears; Metal or delrin?

For electric touring, which is better? Delrin uses to be a little faster, but with less torque. Delrin servos are also about 5-10 grams lighter, but I assume that metal gears last longer (no performance degrade over time)?

I use metal.....HS-5945

But, they will degrade after awhile. Long while...

Metal to Metal will wear faster, but delrin wil break.

without a doubt metal- The best servos now are all made with metal gears and are super fast but durable.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
