Default z99/reichenbach

I got a sample of some reichenbach frit to compare to z99 and here is a preliminary result-top is z99 over opal yellow, lower is the reichenbach over opal yellow...

Is it available in the USA? It is Reichenbach's new Purple Rose.

It is available in Europe in Lampwork Cane as RL-2202.

That's the 104 version. The 96COE is R733:

I found the R-733 and ordered some cane, frit and powder. But I'd love to find the RL-2202 cane (104 Coe) version for sale in the USA.

Where did you find it? I tried to order some #1 frit from OCR today and they said they were out.

OCR doesn't seem to have it. Really, is it that hard, after all these years, to put up a picture of the color of the rods? I don't get that.

With all the talk about Z-99..I did some researching on Zimmermann,Kugler and Reichenbach.You know how Effetre and Vetrofond and maybe others use the same numbers for the same colors in their lines..ie: light ivory is 264 both in Effretre and vetrofond.Well..the German glasses are somewhat the same..Kuglar has many of the same color numbers as Zimmermann ,Reichenback a bit less but the ones from Kugler that I have tersted compared to Zimmermann are pretty close.I don't have pics but as soon as my hubby and son are finished working in my studio for the day..will make up a couple examples and post.

the z99 seems to have a broader range, kicking a little more into the red/yellow than the reichenbach 733

Reichenbach doesn't sell COE 104 frit. The COE 104 is only available as rods or so called "Fritte" in German, but it is not frit in one size but as if you mixed chunks, frit and powders of different sizes.

I picked up some chunks of Purple Rose at Frantz several months back. Here it is over white (just stuck three chunks on a small bead) (sorry about the crappy cell phone pics) :
