Kevlar or steel

I want to buy some aftermarket brake lines and i have read on one site that kevlar flexes less than steel. I was wondering if anyone has any info on both materials. Kevlar was also cheaper. Anyone had experience with both and have any preferences? Thanks for the help.

I luv my SS lines. I have Galfer lines, split in the front for easy bleeds and I also have goodyear quick bleeders. Sure makes it easy to bleed the brakes independently and on my own.
