    I have used so many different slides in my life. I hated them all. Noisey, scarring up the side of the guitar neck, heavy, too big or small. That is over now, ladies and gentlemen!!! This slide is light as a feather. Very comfortable. GREAT warm tone. None of that clanking, banging noise that metal or glass slides make. And they won't break when you drop them!Made of the same wonderfull material as the V-Pick Guitar Picks. I am impressed and fascinated with this material. There are about 8 different cast acrylics made. I have gone thru them and chose this one because of it's durablility, gliding action, tone and easy grip.
    I believe this is the best guitar slide on the market. AND, if you get into a bar fight, they make a great knuckle sammich without cutting your hand!
    Just kidding......

    Thank you gentlemen! Gabriel and I played with them last night and the outshined the glass and brass slides by a mile! So much lighter too.

    I have another gismo in the works for slide players also. Something I learned from Gary Rossington back in the 70's. Stay tuned......

    I will be ordering one. Wanted to chime in and say how much I like your picks. I am using a pyscho. My hand is a little messed up and it really helps plus it glides off the strings. Many thanks Vinnie

    Interesting ... I'll have to grab one as I've been playing a lot more slide of late. My only comment: I've used some pretty light slides, and, past a certain point, it seems one needs enough mass for good solid intonation, as well as tone production. I don't doubt that you've got the tone bit sorted, but I'll be curious to see how the mass is.

    Got a slide and the medium rounded. Said the medium rounded was good to start with.

    and i desperately need a new slide!

    mine came in yesterday.....really nice!!! love the feel, and the light weifght. as far as sounds, it's a very warm sound, similar to a ceramic slide.

    nice job Vinny! I'll have to get a couple more for backup.

    Thanks for the review Chris. I appreciate that very much!

    I have never played a ceramic slide. I didn't even know they made them!

    Got mine today and preliminary tests indicate that it kills! Warm (gives you a little more flexibility on the tone knob because it attenuates some of the ice picks naturally) but not muddy, and the weight is a bonus since it would make it easier for heavy handed players to play on lighter setup guitars if they so desire.

    I'll be cranking it this afternoon, more as it develops.
