How do you like that BearPaw Glass?

This is my third build with it. And I'm happy with it.  The clarity of the clear glass is exceptional.  The black glass seems to be functionally the same as the Gordon's glass.  Both work a bit differently.  The Bear Paw produces an elongated dust when worked hard where the Gordon's produces a finer dust.  Not sure what it means if anything.  Just an observation.

There seems to be differing opinions regarding the draw weight outcomes of the stack between the Bear Paw and Gordon's.  I have stayed with my stack calculations and any difference in draw weights could be explained by other variables.  

I have one strip of Gordon's clear left and will be using the bear  paw clear exclusively from now on.  As far as colored glass is concerned either is fine with me.

Yes, that would be the form.  

Depends on the exact design you want to build.   I can tell you more if you tell me exactly what you want to do.

Yes, now that you brought it to my attention!  [thumb]  My email notices go to an account that I rarely check and the notice at the top of the TAS sight doesn't jump out.  I'll be responding to your PM.
