This is the first I have heard of a plastic fiberglass mix, every source I have read says polycarbonate.

But the key thing for me is whether it much matters, that is our fundamental disagreement. People don't associate "plastic" with "tough" but they should, in cases where the type of plastic chosen is indeed tough.
