The main difference is:

Fiberglass baluster is a shaft that is usually molded or from a lathe-turned form, from one of various materials including wood, stone, concrete, fiberglass, plaster, and other composite materials standing usually on a bottom rail with a top handrail. Multiple balusters and rails form a balustrade system

Concrete balusters show almost no seams when you use precast color matching caulk. ... Options to choose from are concrete railings for your patio, pool, porch, front entrance, backyard, balcony or stairs.
