Re: first go with the new Grassls...

Yeah, they are great. I bought several liberte's a year ago and subsequently picked up a bunch of the 1855's and Cru's. I have GGG's, Zaltos and a bunch of other random glasses but use Grassl's 99% of the time. A lot lighter than Zalto's and seem to be slightly more durable than GGG's.
