Soffit Material

Looking for opinions. I have decided to use vertex stealth trim on my house, including soffit trim. Problem is I don't like the look of their soffit panels and was thinking of using hardie soffit panels. Any thoughts for or against?

Vinyl Beaded.... Looks the best imo and easy to open up if needed in the future...

I like the beaded vinyl or Mastic Ventura with the hidden vent if needed.

I have to agree on the vinyl beaded and the hidden vent both being great products that are easily opened up down the road

Hardi 4x8 sheets are hell to rip. or 1/4 primer plywood never used the vertex but it looks expensive.
