Default Which clear???

I've been away since 2016 - literally have not lit my torch - and, have not been here snooping around much either, so I'm totally out of the loop! I was wondering if someone might be able to tell me what clear glass is everyone using right now for their encasing?

Thanks!

Effetre Super Clear seems to do really well for me, I was only able to get it in small mm rods the last time I went to get some though which kind of sucked but it is really nice clear to work with. The last time I got some really thick stuff, I got the regular Effetre and spent a great deal of time peeling that crap like overripe bananas, talked to someone at Mountain Glass, it was rumored at the time that the factory was selling the heads and tails (old moonshiner terminology) as regular clear and the middle run as 'super clear' and running the price up instead of re-batching it. To add insult to injury they were then accusing Americans of working our glass too hot. I don't know if there's any truth to it, but that was back in like 2010 or something.
