”Also is there any reason most guys are using MDF instead plywood when making these circles?”

MDF would be easier to keep balanced due to it’s more uniform material and glue mixture. Plywood can have voids, or knots in the veneer, or thicker glue lines in spots, all affecting the balance of the finished drum.
