Reply to "ISO glass, Speigelau or Riedel?"

Since everyone is talking glassware, does anyone else have an opinion of the Schott-Zwiesel "Diva" stems? These are the ones from titanium, not lead, that are supposed to resist breakage. I have learned (the hard way) that only the bowls are this fantastic titanium. The stems and feet are still very delicate.

As for the tasting component, I think they offer a decent concentration of flavors and aromas for their individual shapes. I didn't pay Riedel prices, so I didn't expect Riedel quality.

I bought them also on the neophyte idea that they might be safer for some of my over-zealous Wineaux friends. Alas, they have an Achille's heel...or stem, if you will.

Anyone else got these, or am I the only one?
