In real world use, I’ve found FRN is more durable, has better grip, better grip with gloves, better grip when wet, less prone to damage, less effected by the elements and it’s lighter.
G-10 is okay. I thought I’d like it more but FRN out performs it.
Smooth G-10 & carbon fiber? They can go jump off a bridge.
This is pretty much my thought process as well. I'll add that I like Micarta and hate Titanium/Aluminum/Stainless as well for scales.
