I'm confused as to how this is suddenly just about snuden. I don't think I've said anything regarding snudens glass aside from some of it being just as well made as yours (or better).
I've seen the whole gambit of glass coming from China from amazing pieces to absolute crap - just like I've seen with American glass. You know the majority of the pieces made in America are cheap crappy pieces right? We have bulk manufactures as well... I've tagged along while large quantities of American glass were being sold and vast majority is garbage meant to be smoked in once or twice and then tossed in the trash before boarding a plane.
