My older BD single is a different design. Having said that (and looking at the BD site Tech-specs), I imagine that metal would probably be better*, however I don't think it matters greatly because the design is done in a way that spreads the load, so they would be adequate to the task, due not being stress-points.

* I think metal buckles would resist UV degradation better in the long term, and survive abuse like standing on them in cold conditions (brittleness factor??); however you would have to leave the ledge setup in sunlight heaps, and possibly in a high altitude environment for either factor to overtake general wear and tear issues affecting the ledge in other ways.

If the need ever arose, I also imagine that they could be replaced fairly easily.

Are you aware of / coming to, the Buffalo aid-weekend?
