Roof Saddle - Wood or metal?

What’s better, a Roof Saddle built out of lumber and shingled or a copper/ metal saddle? Current one is copper, thinking that I should take some time and build a wood saddle and shingle it.

All things being equal a copper saddle would be better but this depends on a few key things.

How well done is the existing copper saddle, does it look good, is it leaking?

How large is this saddle, is there an extreme pitch transition involved?

Is the chimney a real masonry/brick chimney or is it a wood chimney chase with siding or fake stone?

thanks.

It seems to be in good condition and is not leaking, there is no indication that there was ever any leaking inside the attic. There are 2 seams that are soldered. solder seems fine.

the length of the peak of the saddle is 2 feet. 5.5/12 roof pitch

This is a real brick chimney, 1 flue for fire place and 1 flue for mechanicals exhaust.
