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.

                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.

                Comments about Dunlop Heavy Pyrex Glass Slide:

                Although I am an experienced player, I have not played a lot of slide. I do own a couple other standard size ones made of metal and glass. The shorter length of the Dunlap makes it easier to work with my pinky and form chords with my other fingers. This slide has all the warm qualities you expect from glass. The only caveat is that it may be too small for folks with thicker fingers.

                    I have long skinny fingers and the small fits over my entire pinky. On the ring finger it stops at the second joint. The heavy wall rings out both on an acoustic and and strat. So much more control with short version, that I'm able to use low action.

                    Love this slide! I use the 212 regular short heavy as a little finger slide which took some work to learn to control but it allows me to finger chords and leads can go back and forth from slide to regular fingering. Softer tone than metal. Round wound strings will eventually dig grooves in them but they're cheap!

                        This is a good slide for cigar box guitars as it is not as long as a normal slide. Great sound, the only bad thing is ring size, I have long thin fingers and still have to wear on my pinkie. But for the price its a good deal.
