Impact Toughness:Composite Vs Steel

Hi guys.
Which one has more impact toughness: GFRP or Steel??
 
No replies..??? Guys I just want to compare them in terms of impact toughness.
 
depends what type of steel my friend, you have carbon steel, alloy steel, then you have different microstructures achieved through different cooling processes etc.... then again im not to familiar with GFRP.
