96 glass color from China on eBay

Several colors in small diameter rod for sale as "unbranded". Seller is idea*for*life

Anyone ever try this material?

well, better detail would help Ted. I know a number of the color makers in the PRC but the issue is still whether there is engineering to maintain the quality control. In the Shanghai shop , it exists but that's not saying much when you look over the industry. We're not selling color, we use it.

Well I had thought that providing the sellers name would make finding one of the sale items easy to find. As I now see that this seller has 419 listings on eBay, that was a poor assumption. Here is one of the colors in question.

There is not much information in the listing but maybe someone here will spot something I missed.

Doesn't seem like you'd be saving much compared to what East Bay or Olympic can offer, and at least you know what you're getting with them.

I agree with Mike on the price and it also seems to me to be an odd shape to make a 96 in. I could see it as a 104 or a boro certainly. I'll ask Eveline. That takes time now since the PRC doesn't allow email from the west in Shanghai. She has to have a VPN in Hong Kong.

You're right James. Wasn't that the off shot from Seattle Batch at one point ten years back or was it someone else?

That is old stock from PI, whoever made it ended up with a lot of stock....
I wonder when they will push old china nuggets back on the market.

It makes much more sense. It's certainly pricey
