Default duraflex vs frp for bumper skins, better/worse for fitting?

Anybody know if the "new" duraflex type bumpers are any better/worse for getting them fitted and painted then the standard frp type bumpers ?

Only reason I ask is that I'm thinking of swapping my bumper, and the duraflex is $200 cheaper then the FRP version.

duraflex is def more of a pain in the ass to fit! I worked in a paint shop for awhile and considered duraflex too before I saw it in person

Ok, perfect that's what I wanted to know.

Could you also confirm that supposedly Duraflex after it's been painted starts to flake/chip more easily ?
