Other than the bling factor, does the metal head make any difference performace wise?

The only thing that I've heard of people changing are the blade grips because they'll crack with hard 3D, but other than that, I don't think so.

Metal grips feel VERY different in flight. It's a crisper feeling. I have found this true on my 600, 700 and 3 Raptor 90's.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

I couldn't agree more. I felt way more "connected" to the heli after putting the metal grips on.

If you flex your blades on a hot day with the stock plastic grips, you'll see the pitch arm flexing quite a bit. The plastic doesn't stay rigid when it gets warm outside. I switched over to the metal grips, they do make the heli handle better.

all are correct. The bird feels much tighter with metal main blade grips. Also, if you have to high of a headspeed, the plastic ones might break.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
