More information usually helps to best answer this type of question.

What size blades are you asking about?

Are you a newbie who crashes often or an expert?

I don't like glass fiber blades. I think woodies are best for beginners because they break easily, and CF blades are better for experts because they break easily (but cost more). Glass fiber blades are more durable than either wood or CF and hold up well in a crash such that a lot of energy which is usually used up snapping the blades ends up damaging other parts of the helicopter.

Like most things, I think there are good fiberglass and bad fiberglass blades, as there are good C/F and bad C/F blades.

I do not judge a blade by what it is made from. I judge them by how well they fly (overall collective response, cyclic response, auto caapability, stabillity in FFF and FBF flight) and how well they hold together after 100's of flights.

Consequently, I have found fiberglass blades, like the silver/grey FunKey (the smallest they make are 530mm though) blades, that are reinforced with C/F, to be substantially better then a number of all C/F blades I have puchased.

I have even had some brands of wood blades that I would rather fly then some C/F ones. These C/F sets were relegated to the garbage bin, I would have felt guilty selling them to someone else!

So if you are looking for less expensive composite blades, in the 530mm, or 550mm or 600mm size, try the FK's. I am sure you will be happy with them.
