Ok, I bite and bought a set too since it was on sale.
I use a glencairn about 90% of the time, but I found these at Pier 1 for about $3 and they're awesome for an ice sphere:
I don't use mine every day, but when I want to add an ice ball, I tend to reach for these glasses.
Enoch, glad you like yours. (And since this post makes me sound like one, No I'm not a Sun's Tea salesperson).

I collect taster glasses from craft beer breweries. Since they usually hold about 4 oz. they are a nice size to drink bourbon. My favorite are the ones that look like small brandy sniffers but a lot hardier. Here are two I got at Broken Compass (breckenridge) and Crooked Stave (denver).
Hardy goes a long way with me. I'm down to about 15 of my original 24 glens.

I ordered and am looking forward to receiving two 5oz Stolzle Glencairn/Copita glasses from Cobhthaigh Celtique. I placed the order around 1PM and they were shipped three hours later to be delivered Friday.
Got my Copita glasses. They're pretty nice to be honest. I can see myself using them quite a bit.
Here's a picture of one next to a regular Glencairn:
