Default 23 inch fender

I am about to buy a 23 inch fender for my cross country. I have found three different materials that are available. Metal, aluminum, and fiberglass.

Does anyone with personal experience no the benefit of one over the other?

The prices seem to vary from as low as $300 to as high as $700.

Thanks
Bob

I would steer away from fiberglass, that is a long unsupported piece on a 23" wheel and the fiberglass flexes.

I have the Ness 23" fibreglass fender and it is top notch. It's a quality piece.
