Matt, 

 

Have you tried the Riedel Performance line wine glasses? They use Schott water white glass, amazing stuff!  

No, but the glass platter on the table is etched Hoya FCD01.

My FS128 which never disappoints. Now if only the skies would clear, I’d settle for a decent sucker hole after this recent run of weather and the sad forecast.
