What is subbing the plates?

I have done a lot of reading and I made a list of negatives for each base. Maybe these are wrong but it is looking like they are not

PIA to clean
Heat transfer from fingers (differing opinions about this so maybe the jury is still out)
heavy (not so much an issue now as I will be learning in a controlled still lifeish/studioish environment)

Trophy Aluminum:
Cutting (apparently the lip after sheering is an issue
Not reusable (though this might not be the case if the collodion is still wet)
