    We are doing a big bathroom remodel and will be moving the bath tub to a new location. Since it has chipped and been reglazed previously and is chipping again we figured we would just replace it. What do people like: fiberglass, steel, cast iron?

    Cast iron has the best chance of lasting the longest. Acrylic is okay (what I have), some like some of the other cast jobs. I'd personally put fiberglass at the bottom, maybe just behind the steel jobs. If you do a search, you'll find some opinions.
