for metals in vray, I'd use the GGX BRDF, it's nice for blurry reflections. -

If you've upgraded to 3.1 the GGX BRDF is apparently very good (from what I've seen on Grant Warwick's training).

Interesting Strat - you use Blinn for metals?

nope. i use phong generally, unless i specifically want anisotropy speculars. phong give that more 'oomph' to my specularity. i use phong so much in architectural mats to be honest, much more than blinn or ward.

i use blinn for more organic stuff and ward for fabrics. all else is usually phong.
