Yikes...sorry to hear about the loss of your beer and carboy, but I'm glad you weren't hurt too badly. It could have been a LOT worse.
I bought two 6 gallon Better Bottles after a couple of close calls with glass carboys put some fear in me. You'll like them, it's a pleasure to wash and handle carboys that weigh practically nothing, and are guaranteed not to maim or otherwise injure you.
I've still got two 5 gallon glass carboys, and I'd use them again for secondaries if I could find the right size of crate to hold them securely. Until then, they sit on the shelf.
