Are there any downsides to using wax vs. plastic frames for honey extraction?

My bees seem to hate plastic frames so I'm tempted to use wax foundation for honey supers. Would wax frame honey supers behave any differently in honey extracters than plastic frames would? Or do they hold up well during extraction?

Thank you so much for your replies! I think I'm not going to bother forcing my plastic-hating bees into using plastic honey supers and just go with the wax and hope for the best when it comes time for extraction :)
