Deck Bar Railing - using Trex?

last month

I am getting a new deck built (above ground). I decided on Trex so that the deck would be maintenance free. I am asking for a bar railing (flat) to be built - which will be used to set drinks, plates etc - not anything heavy. At the longest it will be 16 ft. The contractor says that the railing top will have to be built using regular wood and not Trex. This does not make any sense to me as the railing top will be supported by rails below and should be strong enough to handle plates/glasses. Am I right? Or is there a reason that the bar rail cannot be built using Trex.
