I'm curious why you are considering glass? I fish it 98% of the time, but it probably only 1 in 500 (or less) fly fishermen would even consider fishing anything but graphite.
Flyfish99 is right, most fly shops don't even carry it.
Older glass might be a little heavier, although some members on the fiberglass flyrodders forum have noticed that some of the better fiberglass rods (with fiberglass ferrules) weigh the same on a postal scale as their modern graphite counterparts (although this is not necessarily their listed weight).
Many feel that the modern boutique glass builders are building the best glass rods ever.
