# Mirror Ball Query

Ok kids,

I'ts time for that age-old question: GLASS mirror balls or PLASTIC mirror balls? Which kind of balls do you prefer???

Have an option for a 20" plastic model for under $80. The glass version is over$230! The plastic ball is much lighter, which will be easier for us to hang in what is a pretty hard-to-access location. But I've heard that a glass ball will give better sparkle. Thoughts? Is that even a thing? Would the plastic ball not be just fine as long as I windex it really well???

Slight swerve, but be careful with Windex or similar with plastic.
Any glass cleaner that contains ammonia can cloud up many plastics.

I really want to quote AC/DC here...

Plastic handles the impacts of transportation better, it's lighter than glass.
