Cast Iron tubs the finish is stronger in most cases then

fiberglass BUT there are new acrylic tubs like Americast that are

just as strong (and cost the same) as Cast

Cast Iron will not shift like the plastic tubs do BUT you do

have a lot more heat loss as the mass of the cast iron is hard to

keep warm.

Acrylic tubs you have to be extra careful what cleaning agents

to use as the finish can scratch more easily
