I think it's pretty apparent what breaks which prop. The scimitar-bladed wood props are only vulnerable right at the tips, where any contact is on a definite grain boundary. Been playing with various Turnigy props, the straight-tip sport props aren't fragile at all.
The APC's tend to break near the hub, I suspect into corn the wood would be at least as good as APC, but rubbing against the runway definitely put the advantage to the APC.
