I bought this Dunlop tempered glass slide #218 to play Blues on the 3-string, fret-less, electric cigar box type guitars I build. The inside diameter of about .800" is just right for my 3rd finger and the 2" length perfect for the 1" overall string spacing of the instruments. The glass is thick at 0.165" and doesn't feel fragile. This glass slide is not as harsh as a steel slide with first contact with the strings. With a steel slide a "hammer on" is very percussive and can get shrill on higher frets, especially with a tube amp with the treble turned up.

I have been fabricating my own steel slides so they will fit just right and have the right weight but, I find I'm playing with the Dunlop #218 most of the time.

I think you would have to work to break one of these heavy slides and they are cheap enough to keep an extra on on hand in case someone sticks it in their pocket.

I received mine in the mail. It has units for length, wall(thickness), inside(diameter) and ring size(I have no way to measure this - go to a jewelry store?). All units are in mm. The description here on the web page only mentions ring size - nothing else. Inadequate and makes it impossible to select one that fits well.

          The Dunlop glass slide fits well and gives a full and smoothe sound, rather than a scratchy metal slide.

                  Seems to work fine but I had not played slide before. The one I ordered is too big for my finger so I rarely use. Not the products fault.
