I think it was the armor that was fibreglass in the case Paul is discussing
I prefer the idea dave was talking about where they use pasta as the deliberate point of failure in the lance rather than having a lance made entirely out of balsa wood.
I know this much I would not fancy being on the receiving end of any object being wielded by a horse propelled clanky.

A segment in the middle is replaced with what looks like a bunch (traditional measurement) of pasta (straight) that is bound in. The lance then explodes at that point and it looks like splinters. Fibre glass is all you need for that level of fakery.
