I haven't been on either of these but...
I've been on four GCIs (American Thunder, Apocalypse, Roar, and Thunderhead). All four are really good rides, and three are in my top ten wooden coasters. I have also been on nine B&M inverts (Afterburn, Alpengeist, Flight Deck, Raptor, Silver Bullet, and four Batman clones). Most of them are pretty good, but none make it into my top ten steel coaster list (4 of the five non-Batmans are in my top 25, however). I prefer my favorite GCI (Thunderhead) to my favorite Invert (Silver Bullet), and I definitely prefer my least favorite GCI (Roar) to my least favorite Invert (SFGAdv's Batman). So, naturally, I voted for Montu.
WHAT? Well, Prowler is considered one of the top ten wooden coasters in the US, and Montu is considered one of the top 25 steel coasters in the US. However, Thunderhead is considered one of the top five wooden coasters in the US, and I have already been on it. I basically thought, "If I was offered the choice to ride one of these two rides tomorrow, independent of their respective parks, which would I pick?" and voted based on that. Plus, we've already got a wooden coaster in the next round (Voyage).
