What's the difference between rubber rollers and nylon rollers on crusher/destemmers?

The rollers are the part of the mechanism that actually comes into contact with the grapes and does the physical crushing. Rubber rollers tend to be softer on the fruit, which results in less chance of bruising and less presence of tannins. However, many crushers/destemmers tend to have adjustable rollers, so the winemaker can adapt his machine to suit his needs.

Winemakers, do you have a personal preference you'd like to share?
