For me, hoods for slippery terrain, tops for rough downhill where transferring weight backwards is important, and drops for super steep downhill where maximum braking force is important. I'm going to have to try drops on slipper stuff though, after reading this.
(I'm talking about singletrack or open country mtb on a cross bike, rather than actual cross racing, fwiw)
