Your choice of slide might want to consider what slide player tones you like. Brass or Chrome was often used for acoustic slide for greater volume but plenty of electric players have used these e.g Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, Muddy Waters. Can be a harsh sound which may or may not suit. Glass can be smoother and warmer. I like both depending on context.
Duane Allman and Derek Trucks are glass (bottle or open ended). With humbuckers.
Rory Gallagher was brass I think, on a Tele and Danelectro i.e. singles.
Johnny Winter was mainly chrome, on minibuckers in his Firebird.

Ring finger gives you more control. Muting with the palm and fingers behind the slide can be hard to master.

I have the Guitar World 'Learn Slide Guitar' DVD by Andy Aledort if anyone wants to borrow it. Covers the Open Tunings and Standard Tuning and the styles of a number of players. PM me if interested.

Dredge! My Ariel Posen Rockslide arrived today, super cool, like a long brass thimble you wear on your little finger, feels so much better than the chunky monkey tubular brass slide I already have and never used because it felt weird...

This thread reminds me to dig-out my slides.

I use one of these:

Also have a plain brass, pyrex and one that is sized for my finger made by dude in Wanganui that allows me to turn it and still fret while not sliding.

I use my little finger for the fretting behind it thing.

I still have a few different ones. Including ones you can turn around when not sliding. Found those to be a bit shit really. May as well do the beer bottle thing.

Usually I go chrome or pyrex. Sockets are still fun as you can just use a part of your finger.

Brass is heavy but is the most awesome tone.

Still not got the ceramic from ma-in-law. I need to let her have my favourite one so she can replicate it.

Still using mainly a Daddyslide German silver slide made to order https://daddyslide.de/home_en/

and a Diamond Bottleneck also made to order

https://www.diamondbottlenecks.com/TheBlueDiamond.html

I probably have a 1/2 dozen others lying around but you buy one then find it just doesn't inspire. 99% of the time I use the Daddyslide, just a great piece of kit. The rest the Diamond mainly on wood acoustics and electrics.
