    The 250 is actually an older design. The 300 is not a solid body because that makes it easy to disassemble by thumb crews on the base. It's a much better design.

    still considering this monster. whats it made of? constructed well?
    a couple of owners on other forums said they had trouble with it leaking at the neck where the cup fits into the neck.
    one owner said the cup crazed after one month.
    just isolated cases? mfrg ok? it sure looks nice.

    thanks again

    They're made very well out of molded acrylic. I haven't heard of any problems with one leaking before or any crazing, but that's not to say it hasn't happened to someone.
