Craft Competition uses a glass engineered to expose all the aromas hiding behind nose-numbing alcohol. NEAT Glass allows you to taste the truth and discover what’s hiding in your glass.
In 2003, a simple mistake in a glass blowing class created a misshapen tumbler which was used in a pinch for want of a clean glass. The amazing change in expression led to a new approach to glass design which is called Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology (NEAT). By studying links between human physiology and molecular behavior, they unlocked the hidden dimensions of distilled spirits for your exquisite pleasure and hedonistic enjoyment, with a spirits glass that directs strong alcohol away from the nose. Over the next nine years, fifty two different design iterations, hundreds of tastings, and GCMS studies led to the perfect ultimate spirits glass now known as the NEAT glass.
Science builds better glassware: The NEAT glass…Design driven by science brings truth in taste.
The Patented Design: Create a wide vessel to enhance evaporation, short enough to allow heavy aromas to reach the nose, and squeeze the vapors so lighter molecules like ethanol alcohol move faster. Flare the rim so squeezed molecules have room to expand, and alcohol scurries over the rim to disappear and never numb the nose, while the other slower moving aromas are detected in the sweet spot, without alcohol. This design patented in the USA D663165, utility patented in the People’s Republic of China, and utility patent pending in Austria, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Definition of Flavor: The blend of taste and smell sensations evoked by a substance in the mouth. A thousand aromas, five tastes define flavor. The total impression includes mouth feel, from sensors that detect oily or dry, temperature, texture, minty, and many others. Aroma (90%) + Taste (5%) + Mouth Feel (5%) = Flavor.
Evaporation: The “engine” that powers aromas to the nose aided by large evaporation area and vigorous swirling. Without evaporation, there is nothing to smell.
Compress and Release: The neck of the NEAT Glass compresses, and the wide flared rim allows expansion as vapors pass through the narrow opening. The lightest vapor – ethanol alcohol – diffuses and disperses.
What’s the benefit?
No more nose burn or numbness. Your nose is free to detect, savor, and enjoy the subtle, wonderful aromas the distiller intended. Your nose will also tell you if the distiller did his job with care, making the proper head and tail cuts, using clean equipment, and even the condition of the barrels. Without alcohol dumbing down your sense of smell, absolutely nothing can hide from your nose.
What’s the scientific verification?
The NEAT Glass was designed for maximum drinking enjoyment and tested under controlled, uniform conditions against other spirits glasses at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Chemistry Department to verify our claims.

The Stick, A toothbrush for your muscles! The Stick is a simple product that keeps muscles relaxed during rollout. Construction is simple a flexible stick, with rollers in between two grips at each end. You can use it directly on the skin on through light clothing. It is waterproof and designed to bow without fear of breaking. I now use it before, sometimes during and after my workouts (who am I kidding I use it when I watch TV, on the phone…).
The Stick benefits, I must start with how it relieves pain and increases range of motion, promoting flexibility and accelerating recovery time. You can also roll out knots of muscles, providing myofascial release and trigger point therapy. It warms muscles, increases circulation and encourages nutrient-rich blood flow.
Ultimate muscle hygiene, just roll sides of neck stay on the muscle and off the spine. You can use it on the back, just roll one side at a time, and stay off the spine. And my favorite is forearms; biceps, butt cheeks and legs remember again stay off the shin this is for the muscles.
Fun, The Stick is so enjoyable it is tough to put down, I do have a soft foam floor roller that I use, yet I must say The Stick gets a lot more attention.
What wax do you use? “Sexwax of coarse”. I used Sexwax as a little kid (grom), now it’s “retro”, it works/does it’s job, and it’s the “go to” choice for pros/experienced surfers. Another plus, they started using an Eco box now packaging is now recyclable. Recyclable package is made of 100% recycled fibers with environmentally friendly, low V.O.C. inks. This new package is easy to open and can be reused to keep your partially used wax clean in its original package. I love that they put on the side “Please don’t litter”.
The Sexwax I am featuring is the;
3X (XXX) Rated Soft (1X softest stickiest – 6X hardest least sticky)
COOL TO MID WARM
58°F to 74°F
14°C to 23°C
Made in the U.S.A.
Non-Toxic – You can chew it! Not a food item, yet all ingredients are designated as food additives by the FDA.
It is a softer wax some of the benefits are, stickier and easier to apply, it will move or rub away in spots where you put a lot of pressure and use. I am happy with the stickiness and stability underfoot.
Sexwax Green Label is my go to wax, as they say it is, “The Best For Your Stick”.
