I have both. Interesting hypothesis, I have never noticed any difference in chemical use between stainless or plastic.

I have used the plastic ones for years and years and they work great. Beyond small differences between tank capacity, and small differences in loading the reels, they certainly seem to work the same. Since I have not noticed any difference in chemical use I am wondering what the other "many downsides" might be.
