Default Acrylic vs. Glass

Which one? I really prefer an acrylic, I like the bubbling feeling more, it feels crisper to me or something...

I like glass better. It feels more authentic.

I don't like the look of acrylic but a bigger problem is that threaded on bases are easily cross-thread, over tightened and broken. I can't see any advantage to acrylic.

I have tried both. Glass holds the water temperature better and longer than the acrylics, but acrylics are definately more durable. We keep 1 of each in the office, the acrylic for everyday use and the glass for when we have guests.

If I had to choose just 1 it would be glass.

I've never used a acrylic, only glass. I like the authetic look better, plus I worry about how stable the how affair would be, the acrylic bases have got to be lighter than glass (for storage afterwards - mine are "room pieces" when not in use).

Ahh i dunno. Acrylic always feel thin to me. I love me some glass hookahs, they just bubble deeper and stay really cold.
