Looking for 96 Cane

Anyone know of my best options to buy cane. I have used several different companies and bought some horrible bundles. Most are filled with to many different sizes to make it worth the cost. I see Kugler makes some but i've never tried their cane. I usually use Gaffer and Reichenbach and know those colors the best. Of course i'm bargain hunter so i'm looking for the best options. Thank you

I haven't bought any in a while, but System 96 cane was really consistent in size 5 years ago. The colors are unimaginative, like your basic crayola, but there is a place for that.

Sys 96 is not necessarily a 96 at all. The host clear is a 94.1. I think you get what you pay for if you want engineered glass. Otherwise, there's some colorful chinese glass on the market, not so cheap though if you consider the downsides.

This so much reminds me of Karl Platt's observation about ten years ago about glass people wanting "Glass from a toothpaste tube".
