For removing a lot of wood, i.e. rough work a BD is better because of the greater backside blade relief. For all other work, jointing, smoothing, flattening, I much prefer BU. BU planes are far easier to swap blades and make mouth adjustments. BD are a pain to setup for smoothing and you don’t want to change that setup. My Veritas LA jack and jointer are so much easier to change setup on than my Stanley’s. The different bevel angles I have on the blades makes it quick and easy to get the setup needed for a particular situation. The BU jointer is much better balanced on the edge of a board vs a #7 due to the lower CG. The Veritas jointer fence is very nice as well.
