It depends on what kind of sound you want. GT has lots of great tutorials demoing the sound of the slide!

If it's any help, I found out that I prefer brass slides. And I've also seen most rock musicians use that kind. Some blues guitarists as well.

Some of it is taste too. My personal preference is bottleneck/glass. It has a warmer sound to my ears and that's what I like. The reality is, I'm probably going to go out and get a bronze/metal one too. They aren't terribly expensive and give you tonal options with benefits to each.

Still, it's what your ear wants to hear. Here's a great article in the subject.
