They are more stable than any stemware really because the center of gravity is lower while the base is still about the same size. I like the tulip-like shape on top which really opens up the aroma, and the way the thinner bottom part of the glass displays the beer.
Plus, for me the size is really perfect as I prefer a little smaller pour. Speaking of which, I get better pours into this glass than some of my other glassware though that's kind of beside the point.
