    In my experience, mat is stronger while cloth is easier to work with especially when it comes to curves and such. That's just a generalization though.

    Re: difference between chop mat and cloth?

    matt is not necaserily(sp) stronger because there is 32oz cloth available and that will out do any chop mat in strength any day of the week, chop mat is IMO much easier to use which is why it is solely the main glass to use in automoitive customization

    chop mat is random fibers in every which direction

    where fiberglass cloth is woven fiberglass fibers in 90 degrees
