I need a new 60 x 30 bathtub and am totally confused on what the best material is. I keep hearing Cast Iron, but it is so heavy & my contractor will charge more because of the weight. Then there is Americast , acrylic & fiberglass. I heard fiberglass is the worst. I want something that will last. I looked at Americast but read it chips easy. Anyone have experience with them? What about acrylic tubs? Are they sturdy enough? I am overwhelmed. My contractor told me any material will outlast me & will not chip unless I drop a heavy metal object on them. I have googled way too much and get mixed reviews. ANY advice will help!

Apparently, Fiberglass is the least expensive and is strong. But this article should help you decide on what you want for the price and quality:

You both appear to be promoting websites which is considered advertising and is therefor against board rules.
There are many choices available from which you can choose. Before settling on what type of countertop you want, you must take into account factors such as its price, durability, maintenance, style and installation. Some of the best materials that can be used for your countertop are marble, laminates, tiles, granite and soapstone.

Personally, I will suggest acrylic and fiberglass mix. They are pretty reliable and less expensive too. I've got myself a clawfoot bathtub, few months back and so far it is in good condition. I've got few suggestions from my friends and that's how I ended up with it. The tub also looks great. It is somewhat similar to the black tub in this blog, just the foot is white. http://www.dispenser.com/blog/...-claw-foot-bathtubs/
