This board primarily has moly users. Brad Shute's board seems populated with SiC people. Both work and both have advantages and disadvantages. Both in fact seem to be susceptible to moisture issues and I used to think it was just SiC. I used to hear tales of the elements falling apart on SiC for no apparent reason but it seems that with good installations, that really rarely happens. Moly elements break too and probably for reasons associated with installation. SiC doesn't need a transformer which is a big plus but the downside is changing resistivity as they age. So there's good and bad points for each. This board just tends towards moly. There's no basis to be snotty about it though.
