This slide is my first. After reading a lot of reviews on different slides, I decided to go with the Dunlop 212 as it seemed to be the most logical choice. I wasn't disappointed. It's taken me just a bit of time to get used to using the slide (especially in keeping it out of the way when fingering notes with my index and middle fingers) but the Dunlop 212 has made it relatively easy ... and fun. When not in use, I keep the slide in its original resealable plastic packaging to avoid potential breakage.
I'm rating the Features as a 9 instead of 10 as I'm thinking it would be nice if the slide had a slight curvature to it to better facilitate use across all six strings at once. This slide nonetheless fits perfectly across the fingerboard of my Carvin AE185. While I had initially hoped to find a slide to wear on my pinky, I'm glad I didn't but instead got the Dunlop 212 as it fits my ring finger perfectly. (Caution: If you have thick fingers, this slide might only fit your pinky.)

The photo depicts three different sizes. The Sku indicates that what you will get if you order one is the "Short/Small Single," the listing for which indicates that it fits a ring size of 6.5 and is 51mm in length. For the record, the specs listed on the cardboard packaging for the "Dunlop No. 212" slide I received specifies that it fits a ring size of 7 and has the following dimensions: Length - 51mm, Wall - 4mm, Inside - 17mm.

To give you an idea of the length of slide relative to fit, my ring finger is 2-7/8" (7-1/4 cm) in length, the slide fitting just over the knuckle with the tip of my finger sticking out the other end. The slide is lightweight, yet the glass is thick enough to render a nice tone. I considered ceramic, as well as brass and chrome, but decided to go with glass in hopes of achieving a traditional Deep South thing.
While something tells me the glass of this slide could be just a bit better, I like it nonetheless.
This slide seems to be priced about right.

I tried this slide in hopes that it would be easier to play with than my heavier glass slides, and it definitely is. It's a good size; fits fine on my average-sized ring or pinky. But I wound up not using it because of the tone. I am not that picky about tone. For example, the tone difference between different string guages is inaudible to me. But with this light slide I definitely get a thinner, squeakier tone with less sustain, and I can't live with that. So it's back to heaving the heavy one around.

    Comments about Dunlop Heavy Pyrex Glass Slide:

    Players used glass pill bottles because they were plentiful, free with the pills, and produced the desired tonal effect if the player developed the required skill. This is a good slide if you use your pinky. To me, a glass slide is just a tool. This works well enough and wasn't overpriced.

      I've tried polished steel, brass, actual bottlenecks. For me, these are the best for pinky slide playing, and cheaper too. You can buy a few an put one in every case and bag.

        Comments about Dunlop Heavy Pyrex Glass Slide:

        Really like this shorter/thick wall slide. Very light yet substantial. Tight fit on ring up to middle knuckle but stays in place and can't drop it. Use it on pinky mostly. Like the shorter slide as it is easier to be quiet when setting it on the strings than a full slide. WORKS FOR ME.

            I was looking for a thick glass slide that would fit my ring finger and this is the one. I liked it so much that I bought another one.

            Comments about Dunlop Heavy Pyrex Glass Slide:

            No way to know if it will fit unless you own a jeweler ring sizer. Ordering your regular ring size will provide the wrong fit since you don't wear a slide pushed all the way to the base of the finger or over the last knuckle.

                    I have tried many different slides and this is the one for me. If you play with your pinkie and combine with playing chords and regular fingering I can't imagine a better slide. It is small (shorter than other slides) and light enough to manuever easily without banging it on the strings, yet thick enough to get great tone. Will fit small to medium thickness pinkies but if your fingers are really large you may need a bigger size.
