Greetings......has anyone seen or personally familiar with the van Dokkum Linking Rings, especially the Locking Key Ring? How good are they compared to a set of Merv Taylor Stainless Steel Rings?

Not sure of release date, but Jason Latimer was using a fantastic new set of linking rings from Joe Porper... 3 ring set but starts with 2 and the 3rd MAGICALLY APPEARS AND VANISHES in a spectacular fashion. He had one set at FISM that he sold... not cheap, but worth it.
Stay tooned.

Dear Pete,

Are the rings you write about the rings that Jason uses in his act ? If so, what was so spectacular about it ? Please don't get me wrong but I did not think it was spectacular at all and I am not saying this to disparage Jason or his work...

Best regards,

I don't know if these are what he used in his stage act as I was busy and missed it... the effect of the new Porper rings is that you have two rings and do several nice moves, etc. and suddenly you have three rings... a third ring just appears... and then it is gone.

As with all of Porper's work, these are very fine quality and are made via compueterized CNC machine. I don't know any details as yet.
Stay tooned.
