Panniers: metal vs. plastic hooks/clips
Installed the new Tubus Tara only to find out that my current panniers, Serratus Aqua-Nots, won't work so I am in the market for a new front set. Probably cheaper to get a different rack but I like the rack.
I have used several brands, some with metal hooks and some w/ plastic like Ortlieb. The companies which use metal hooks/clips say the are better than plastic because they don't break. Sounds reasonable but I have never heard of a plastic hook/clip breaking. Have you?
