I never had the best luck with fiberglass blades outdoors.

My blade of choice for roller is an Easton XABS blade. They are hard to find these days but they last forever and stand up well to the weight of a roller puck. I wouldn't go near ice with it though, the weight difference between a plastic puck and a rubber puck is too much.

Pretty much any blade that is made of ABS plastic will suit you well. They're cheap and I know Easton and Koho make them with wooden shafts so you don't need to get a composite shaft and blade combo. The blades run about 15 bucks and the sticks 15-20.
