Polyester is reported to be more durable but is NOT easily repairable and is NOT really buffable once cured.

Acrylic is reported to be less durable than polyester but is more easily repairable and can be buffed and restored every so often. In my experience a well cared for Acrylic LPU will out last a polyester because when it gets chalky you can simply buff it back to life.

That being said most folks choose Alwgrip for decks not Awlcraft 2000 though Hatteras used Imron (Acrylic very similar to Awlcraft 2000) for years and years with no problems in durability..
