Thanks to Paulie for reminding me - the wind rings being marketed by Mr. Babache are nothing new. They've been around for ages. A juggling friend of mine, Kathy Doutt, showed me an old set of wind rings back when rings used to be made using a heavier, less bendable plastic. These were the types of rings that could shatter.
So these wind rings aren't new, but they don't apparently hold up to their name. Strong winds can still easily affect them apparently. Thanks to Paulie for the reminder.
I like being corrected because it means you care and I'm learning.
