I definitely prefer wood, but I've right enjoyed the plastic clarinets I've played, plus it's the one that I have. I have a Evette Buffett Champion with the original ligature. Found it under my mother's bed and she said I could have it. I have a plastic mouthpiece, I've never played a metal one but I imagine it'd go well with my style. I tend to go for Vandorin 2.5 strength reeds and try to get a plastic coated one if I can, but they're pretty damn expensive.

very nice, i yet to play a wood clarinet, perhaps when i get better, right now i have a selmber cl300 which is plastic and use a bonade inverted ligature with a selmer hs mouthpiece, when i first got my setup i had cracked it and so had to cement glue it, i was worried it would not play as nice but glad i was wrong, right now for reeds i am using a vandoren 2.5 i think it's called blue box, i really like the la voz hard reeds but can't do them that long yet.
