How tough are carbon blades?

I'm dabbling in bigger heli's now. Up to this point, most of my little heli's have used plastic or wood blades. I've noticed that most of these bigger(450+) helis use fiberglass or carbon fiber for the blades. Not yet being an expert, I fully expect to crash atleast a few times. Compaired to the FG blades, how much tougher are the CF blades? How much better will they handle a crash? Is the CF's druability worth the extra cost, or are they just another nifty looking part? Thanks for the info.
