Can anyone confirm that Jeremy's redefine rings match the Owens in apperance? Could you use an 8 redefine set and a couple Owens in the same routine? Thank you.

Hello All!

This is my first post on this forum. I've been lurking for quite some time now.

Jim,

The answer is YES. I own a set of Owen 12" rings as well as a set of Jeremy's Redefine rings. They are the same diameter and thickness. Their weights feels about the same and they handle very similarly. Both emit low bell like tones. The Redefine rings are pitched a bit higher and their sound is more focused, at least among the sets that I own. I actually prefer the sound of Jeremy's Redefine rings to the sound of my Owen set. The main difference is in the shape of the rings. The Owen rings are beautifully ROUND and blossom in your hands when performing slow presentational moves such as the Vernon twist. The Redefine rings are hand crafted and not as perfectly round. They may not be as well suited to a routine composed primarily of slow moves, especially when performed at close range. However, if you perform primarily from a stage or in a faster and more "dynamic" style, then this detail shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise, the two sets are VERY similar and you can successfully augment a set of Redefine rings with specially rings made by Owen such as a L****** K**, oversized or undersized rings etc. They are perfectly compatible.

If possible, It's great to own both. However, If you can't afford a full set of Owen ring at the moment then don't pass up an opportunity to pick up a set of Jeremy's Redefine rings.

Back to lurking and linking!

Cheers!

Kit,
You read my mind. That will completely fulfill my needs and match my buying power at the moment.

There is a user here called Walking Bob, who also states that he almost can't tell the rings apart in some older threads.

I offer aircraft aluminum rings. 10" 12" 13" are 3/8" in thickness. I also offer a 15" ring that is 1/2" thick. A video of the 15"s should be up on my website soon. The hardened aluminum is very lightweight but due to the invisible welds, they ring as well as stainless. They look massive but are super light.

Levent,
I have made the same reference to buying feather flowers that you made to photo equipment. BTW, I was a professional photographer for over 20 years and have a degree in Photo Illustration. One more thought on buying the cheaper stuff is that time you get around to buying the good stuff it has went up higher in cost. Also the good stuff holds it's resale value.

Your points on the size versus the venue are well taken.

"Sticks" is the pro term for tripod. At least in the film biz.

Great Jim. I'd be very interested to hear your first impression once you receive them.
Best of luck,

Will do. BTW, the Owen's lo*king k*y alone almost cost as much as the whole set of redefine rings!

BTW, as still photographer ( I did not carry all that outrageously heavy equipment) we did call it a tripod.

Yeah, Richard, I think it's just the film industry that calls them "sticks."

I only call them "sticks" when I am talking to a professional video crew or a cinematographer. The still photographers I know seem to only call them tripods.

BTW, when are you getting your new rings?

Should be soon, Levent. Steven's are quick with their shipping. Thanks for asking! I'm going to premere them in a stage show on Oct. 21. I've got a question for you and JNeal I'm going to email. Thank you for all your invaluable help!

Got Jeremy's Redefine rings couple days ago and have been playing with them. They are beautiful.

I like the Redefine Linking Rings too. But I was thinking about switching to the 13 inch by Proline. The reason is because I have a 13" key ring called Perfect Key. I was wondering if Proline's quality matches Redefine's. Anyone owns Proline and Redefine?

I received this testimonial a couple of days ago. Christopher sent it for my new website. I'm sure he would not mind me posting it.

"I have been a student of the rings my entire life. I have performed with just about every set in existence and I can say without question, that PROLines Linking Rings are the finest on the planet. I have been using my 15" Rings now for just over 5 years. They have taken quite a beating from me during my act, yet they still look like I pulled them out of the box brand new yesterday! They are massive in size and play great in a living room, a large stage and everything in between! They have a beautiful ring to them...it's quite musical. I don't know how Cliff can sell these for so cheap...but I'd buy them now before he comes to his senses. These rings are without a doubt, the LAST SET OF RINGS you will ever buy. I guarantee it!"


In Mystery,

Aren't those rings aluminum? I didn't think that had a ring to it?

I'm another satisfied Redefine customer. I own two sets. I've been using Jeremy's rings for several years now and love them.
