If you live in Green Bay, and plan on using a repop 13.5" globe, I wouldn't worry about it breaking that much (if at all). If a single repop 13.5" lens breaks, it is $35 to replace it (If you use a 15" globe it will be $60 to replace a lens). They don't break that often, if at all (and it's usually human error). These pumps have been out in the elements in most all states with real and repop globes for years, and they are usually very durable. I think for a pump in Wisconsin it seems like you are going through a lot of trouble for a repop lens (unless you want something made special). By the time you buy clear glass and have a wrap designed and purchased, you probably could have bought 4 lenses and have two on reserve (but I doubt you would barely ever need to replace them).
This is just my two cents, if you are going with a repop lens.
