    Dec 26, 2004, 12:43 AM - Which is the best? #1

    <font color="red"> OK I was just wondering if there was a definite answer as to which is the best: Sintra Fiberglass or aluminum? In terms of strength and durability.
    Thanks,

    As far as strength and durabilty, aluminum hands down. The other 2 materials cant take near the beating. My first armor was alumunim, and I found it a pain to cut out, and shape. Also paint doesnt stick to it very well.

    For Bottom armor . . . I would use Sintra.

    Mostly for safety reasons. (If I was to fall - -not too pretty)

    But for the helmet - - -Fiberglass all the way.
