As for the plastic grip verses metal grips. I am a plastic grip fan. I also believe it helps with the dampening. For example I have an MA rotor head with plastic grips and one with metal grips. The both use the same CNC metal hub in the center. The dampening set up on the metal grips has to be softer than the dampening on the plastic grips. If the dampening on the metal grips is set the same as the plastic grips. The rotor head will oscilate, due to the dampening being too stiff.
There is a couple of manufactuers that use solid rotor heads. They are 2 bladed setups also and not multi blade. Century was not the first to introduce this concept of the solid head. Don Chapman worked on the concept back in the early to mid 90's.

Thanks David; very helpful. I ordered the all metal 5-blade head but I notice that they have plastic grips also available for the same hub so I can try those also.
Have laser, will travel.
