I use a nice heavy brass slide... won't break if you drop it... right before the show..
I use a heavy glass slide, I've dropped it a few times and its got a few dings in it but it hasn't busted yet *knock on wood*
It doesn't happen too often, but hosnestly IF I play slide on stage I use a beer bottle. I tend to play slide more after having a beer though ...
I'd have to have a new bottle for every song...not necessarily a bad thing but it could create issues in the fourth set.
I like ceramic for acoustic and thick glass for electric. On a tangent from that, I also prefer open A and open E tunings for electric and open G and open D for acoustic.
I've used all kinds of stuff. I prefer glass, or in this a Dunlop Pyrex Glass slide 212 for electric, and brass for acoustic. I have a ceramic slides (Mudslide), no metal or chrome though. For a while, I used a socket which had a pretty great sound. It was just the right weight, and seemed to have a nastier tone than the others. I think I might have to try that again. It was a lot of fun, and people ask about it too.
Metal, but only if you play it like this.
I love glass slides, get all my slides from Diamond Bottlenecks in the UK, they make them anyway I want them.
Combine that with Gurf's beer bottle and you may be on to something.
I prefer copper. I was at a jam once and a guy broke out his bic lighter and squeezed it between the crotch of his middle and ring finger. It was amazing what he was doing with plastic. I've tried and could never get that method down, but it sounded pretty cool.
