I have heard about these but don’t know much about them.

Does $200 for a single speed ringmaster sound good?

I googled ringmaster and if it is the one you are looking at.. go for it.. retails for 6 – 700 depending on model.

I checked prices, & it looks about half the price of new.

Thanks, what the hell. I can always sell it later, right?

Might be fun to play with.

You should ask old Mot.
I think he bought one a while back.

I paid that for a rarely used one about 3 years ago. Thought I got a deal. Go for it.

Gary – I have one. With your imagination and skill – you could make some great stuff. I’d go for it.

I bought a new one about 10 years ago, and I think I paid over $300 for it then, so if you can get one for $200, go for it, if that is what you want, they are a lot of fun, you can be very creative with them.

Just got back from picking it up. Got it for $180 because it had no manual.

I just have to order one to learn how to set the thing up.
