Yes!! That’s the only display I use the key for as well... I’m not sure how much stronger it makes the routine but as someone who’s been holding 4 rings the same way since I was 8 years old (rings was the trick I begged my parents for after they bought me a magic coloring book...) that clean 4 ring display is just pure magic to me.

JNeal / Ray... have either of you worked with proline rings at all?

What are your thoughts Porper vs. Owen? (I realize of course we are comparing luxury sport car to luxury sport car, Owen, Proline, and Porper are all great quality rings).

Thomas,I have only worked with and own the rings & things,suds rings,and Van Dokkums rings.

I have seen and handled the Owen Rings.

My Suds rings have been used for 42 years and still in excellent shape.

Don... I wonder if my 8” set is Suds, I wasn’t familiar with them but I googled them and they could be!

My parents bought me a lovely 8” set from magic masters as a kid. They are great quality and I always have wondered if they were maybe rings n things... but perhaps they were suds... very interesting!

My Owen rings (I only own two!) are heavier than the two that Joe made for me.
Both have wonderfully closed and invisible seams.

My sense (now) is that the tone is less pleasurable with the Owen Rings... but in my (old) routine, I try never to allow the two to clang.. so the sound is moot (no pun intended)

Magic Masters" rings came in a wood presentation box. The owner never revealed where his products made. One thing he insisted that all his products be the best ever made and of the highest quality.

Bill... not these rings. They came in a cloth bag.

Other items from Magic Masters came with manufacturers names on instructions. at the time, Haines house of cards made the specialty decks of cards and the coloring books. I Ickle Pickle made the change bags, silkola and aqua vase.

Maybe at the start he tried to keep it a secret, but in the 90’s it really wasn’t much of a secret at all. I may have the instructions to the rings somewhere.... but I’ve yet to find them. Still a great set of rings that I use when the Owens would be over kill

Dear Thomas:

Ring quality back in the 1970's was great.My suds rings have not done any chipping or flaking at all.

My Rings and Things rings are a ten ring set with a locking,standard key and oversized ring.
They are both 10 inch sets.

The Van Dokkum set is 15 inches in diameter with the standard vernon six rings.
