Default Reinforcement - carbon vs. glass

Hi,

I'm going to build up the tube of a carbon boom front a tad to get a snug fit with the renowned MauiSails boom front end which I intend to retrofit. I will not need much cloth, just a couple of wraps. Will there be a motivated advantage to go with the significantly more expensive (10x more expensive per sqm, 1 sqm carbonfibre about $100...) carbon cloth or will this kind of reinforcement / build up be fine with glass fiber?

thanks,

/ Andy
