Default Help with link material

So i need your guys help explaining something to me... As you all have noticed or run now, alot of people use titanium links. I was wondering what is the true benefit of the titanium links? I figured that it must not hang up on the rocks like aluminum does? help is appreciated THX

Titanium is super hard, which results in a part that is strong and light. It won't snag on rocks like aluminum. So more or less it's a durability thing, plus it just looks cool.

Additionally, it tends to be of a smaller diameter than aluminum & Delrin, thus:
-Tends to be easier to "tuck away"
-Fits in small clearance areas

It's also cool to say, "I have Ti stuff!!".
