Acrylic vs. fiberglass tubs and showers

I am picking out the new bathroom showers and tubs for my new house, I am being told that the acrylic which is twice the cost of the fiberglass is a much better product for durability and looks.

any ideas on this?

thanks

For durability you can't beat a good cast iron tub. As to degrees of plastic, none will outlast your stay in a house, if you stay a while. I see plenty of 50 yr old iron tubes in my job, but I have never seen a 50 yr old fiberglass/acrylic tub.
