I vote for plastic. It's 100 times easier to to wash a plastic point than drive a steel one. Cheaper too, a lot cheaper. 1.25" metal points are at least $50 arent they? I saw one at HD for $85 the other day! I can get plastic for $10 at local hardware, think I paid $17 for the 2". That said, I checked a plastic point I have here and it has .008" slots. I've got yellow sand.

I washed a 2" point down for a sprinkler pump last year. I glued 3' points together to make a 5.5' point. 2.5 HP pump I can pull 33 gal/min.

Not sure how much water you want or what you are planning on pumping with, but you can get a lot of water through a plastic point. We usually wash the 1.25" points in with a 3HP trash pump. After the point is in we'll hook the trash pump to the point and pump for a while to get most of the fine silt and such cleaned out. Usually can pull at least 15 gal/min through an 1.25. My $.02. Jeff.
