Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

Hi!

I wrote Tyler and am waiting for a response, but in the meantime thought I'd check to see if anyone here knows the answer to my question.

I am about to order the Elite II rings in the "clear" color. Does anyone know if there are other strap color choices available besides silver? It doesn't look like it from the site, but want to be sure.

Thanks in advance!

Lisa

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

I got red straps for the last version of the Elite Rings and black replacement straps after the switch. (For the record, the replacement straps weren't because the originals broke - it was because... well... let's just say that ring straps should be kept clear of kitty litter boxes).

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

does colour really matter? or are you trying to match walls?

lisa, sorry for being like this. But your buying a piece of equipment for function vs looks.

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

Derek, too funny about the litter box episode. Yupp, you'd definitely need new ones after that!

Frank, thanks for your thoughts, and.......yes, I have to say I am ALL about color!!! Obviously function in #1, but I really want things to look sharp in our new gym.

Just heard from Tyler and learned that the color options are either black or silver.

Thanks again for your thoughts, guys, and have a great day!

Lisa

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

I got the silver straps and so I could use a black sharpie to mark the strap settings for different exercises. Makes changing the height of the rings quick and consistent.

Can't do that with the black straps.

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

Sorry to hijack, but I ordered some rings from Tyler almost 2 weeks ago and have yet to see them or hear from him. Does anyone know the skinny on what's taking so long?
Lisa- don't fret. My fiance was a college gymnast and when we ordered rings she wanted to color coordinate too. Some things you can't change

But you could do it with one of those metalic gold or silver pens on the black straps

Re: Elite II Rings - Strap Colors

Polo,
I answered your e-mail too, but just in case, here goes...
The Elite Rings are on backorder right now. I fulfilled a bunch of orders this week, up till about June 4th (meaning placed before June 4th). I should be getting more rings next week that will take care of all current orders.

Tyler
