Default G-10 frames

Quick question: What are G-10 frames? How do they compare to CF? Replacing the frames on a T600(cause I have to) which are better? Oh, is it worth going 2mm if using CF?

Basically a fiberglass material. Not as light as CF, but quite strong if designed right.

Hard to say, depends on the design. The G10 frames on the Vibe 50 seem to break less than the CF frames on the Trex 600.
