I prefer the plastic since I work on a dive boat and I can beat on them a little bit more then I would if I had fiberglass blades. I also bounce back and forth between shallow freediving and SCUBA and they work great for both applications.
And what size feet do you have? I have heard that fiberglass in most cases will be stronger than plastic fins. I was looking at either the fiberglass beuchat's or the gara 3000's
