AIT Hood vs MPD Hood Durability

I've been steadily saving for a new hood, and reading about both the AIT hood, and the MPD hood. I understand the difference in both of the hoods, and the functionality of the hoods. But I am curious as to which hood is more durable down the line, as in, which hood is going to stay in the best shape and best quality for the longest time?

I think they're both nice... but the ait comes in fiberglass or carbonfiber... the MPD hood is steel i believe which would make me assume it would be more durable... i think the mpd hood is to overpowering on the car though, it doesnt flow with the car at all..

If I wanted to do that, and post a group, which section would I put that under?
