Default Gimbals - Plastic vs Metal

Only ever had Futaba, several models over the years - currently an 8FG, so I have only ever experienced plastic gimbals.

Now I am considering a Jeti DS-12 and I see there are two versions, standard and special edition.

The main difference between the two is that the special edition has metal gimbals whereas the standard has plastic gimbals. That isn't the only difference but the only one that would be significant to me.

But never having experienced Jeti gimbals myself and never metal gimbals of any make I wonder what is the difference.

Are the metal gimbals genuinely better or is it largely bling and hype. I have even seen people saying that they don't like the metal gimbals on another make (not Jeti) because of the noticeable 'clunk' as the sticks cross the centre.
