Is there a difference between fiberglass handles & wood handles on body hammers?
I was looking at these two sets and was trying to decide which one to get.

I like the fiberglass handle hammers myself. The wood handle ones seem to loosen up on me. The fiberglass handles are epoxied in place and I have only ever had one come loose and my coworker was really beating on the hammer.

my Dad owned a body shop and I grew up in it. WOOD handles by far... I just prefer them as does my Dad. They just seem to give a much better preformance, especially when it comes to the finer detailed hammering out dents etc.... just my $.02 worth.... Dad wouldn't own a fiberglass handled body hammer.
