Yeah, no options state side anymore seems quite odd. Importing from Mexico is bad enough, but shipping it across an ocean is indeed kind of insane. Spruce mixes great glass, but I didn't have confidence that they would have the infrastructure to maintain a cullet operation. System seemed to be starting to function properly before it went tits up. The formula changes gave the appearance of adaptation, but the roll out could have been managed better. While the dust would vary batch to batch, I never really had any problems with any of it.

Turbulent grad school experiences forced me to be flexible with the glass I'm using. I'm happy as long as it's relatively cord free and fits the standard colors. I pull cane as I need it, so I'm not beholden to what's a few decades old. "Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change".
