Well... Fiberglass would scratch if you dropped it just as would Spase (my) helms... its the paint that scratches... However, helmets made of plastic molded materials may make deeper scratches easier than fiberglass would if you dropped it on something with an edge, but then fiberglass would crack much sooner than a plastic helmet made from the material I use. Plus, plastics give much more than fiberglass when certain types of stress are applied. Over all fiberglass may be hard as a rock, but plastics and fiberglass are comparable. There is a reason replacement Bumpers on corvettes are made of urethane and not fiberglass... they give on impact rather than shattering. But to each his own, a thousand pros and cons could be listed about each.Xavier said:Not really
Also, space and BR both make their out of plastic, MLC's is fiberglass, which is much easier to repair than plastics, its as hard at a rock. Also -- if either of them use the same type of plastic that Adam does, then if you drop it the wrong way, it will scratch. I bought an AR from adam, and have been working on it with my pocket knife, it carves like stiff balsa.
