What are pros cons of acrylic fiberglass cast iron bathtubs?

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

What is the difference between cast iron tubs and Americast tubs?

Americast is a registered trademark of American Standard, and is a material provided as a lighter alternative to cast-iron. Americast is lighter and costs less, and is claimed to be more durable, though many claim it's less durable than its cast-iron counterpart in its finish.

What is the difference between Bootzcast and Americast materials?

Americast is porcelein on steel with a thick, sprayed on acrylic/composite backing. Unlike other enamel-on-steel tubs, these do not "sound" cheap & tinny when you rap on them-they sound just like cast iron. The backing also acts as an insulator that keeps the water hot longer than cast iron, which draws heat from the water (the iron is cold). The biggest difference, and of EXTREME importance if you're installing it yourself, is that the Americast tub weighs about 110 lbs. vs. 350 lbs. for cast iron! I recently installed an Americast tub & I think it's great.
