I have 5 glass carboys. 3 5ga and 2 6ga and I've never had a problem with them.

I havent seen any better bottles around here locally, and shipping to AK is just robbery. I'd be willing to try one though

Better bottles have their pros and cons but I like the idea that a BB will never just decide to quit on me.

Actually that's not quite true. I was cleaning a 3-year old better bottle a couple of months ago when I noticed cleaning liquid on the floor. I found a thin split in the bottom of the better bottle - fortunately it decided to split when it was only some PBW in it; it would be tragic otherwise.

That better bottle was not abused, but did spend most of its life sitting on a concrete floor in my garage. If you want something that definitely won't quit, think stainless steel.

I forget I have to be excruciatingly clear around here.
A Better Bottle will never just give up, and by give up I mean randomly and without notice disintegrate into a million shards of tendon and nerve shredding shards.
Yes, it will eventually, and very slowly, develop a crack that you will over time notice.

Ah! guess my response didn't take earlier.

I think I'll get a few Better Bottles and use the occasional glass carboy. The idea of one exploding isn't appealing.
