    I used them in my former brewery

    pros : higher shock resistance, leads to less damage
    less noise when handling, especially inline
    better look
    better and easier to grap

    cons : higher investment cost
    parts may spilt off when shock (fall) to high
    may leave traces on the floor
    polyurethan, the black cover layer, is inflammable


    i would order them again if asked

    We currently use them in the 50L model.

    PROS

    Less weight (because of the smaller size)
    They stack REALLY nice
    They don't slide around in a delivery vehicle
    Great shock resistance
    Better insulated because of the poly coating
    They won't end up stolen in the scrapyard for cash

    CONS:

    When you are done with them, you can't scrap them for stainless easily
    Breakdown of the poly does happen, it is possible to rip a weak handle off
    Probably heat up from exposure to Sunlight faster

    Overall, we are very happy with ours. Hope that helps!
