Cowl hood Fiberglass or steel??

Hey I'm gettin a cowl hood this weekend. I just want to know what you guys thoughts are on the fiberglass vs steel. I know the weights a lot differet between the two. but I have hear fiberglass don't last as long. True or not?

I don't think that's true, although with fiberglass you might want some hood pins if you get a cowl
