RE: Thanks for the feedback, Mike

To be honest, I didn't do any extensive tests that could backup the basic idea of Ceramics VS glass fuses. I added that info early on to protect my customers. For years I also asked if they had big amps with not current inrush protection, but have let that practice slip since sales have dropped off. A better statement might be that not all fuses react to inrush current the same way. They might have less threshold before blowing. In my experience, fuses usually blow due to much higher amperage draws than their rated value. I don't understand why designers don't implement inrush protection. It can be done easily with relays, thermistors, and inrush current limiters. DIY people can see easy implementations in Nelson Pass DIY class A designs.
