4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy with great cushioning, August 14, 2014
I spent hours looking through reviews on various types of magic circles before choosing this one and I'm glad I did. It's well constructed, feels sturdy, and the pads are solidly affixed to the ring. The cushioning around the actual metal ring is soft and pliable. The few I was able to find in stores were very cheaply made, flimsy and of overall poor quality (nothing name brand in the stores I went to; it's astonishing how difficult it is to find these in sporting good stores near me!).

I only have two gripes with it, and both could just be the result of poor memory regarding magic circles (it has been years since I took an actual class, so I'm basing my opinion entirely on memory of professional products used in class that might not have been as good as I recall).

My first gripe is that I thought it would have more tension/resistance in the actual ring. I feel like I remember them being harder to actually squish. That said, my first few workouts with this... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, well made, firm tension., December 24, 2016
I did end up returning this ring before my husband used it, as we got a great deal on another one. HOWEVER, we were able to compare the "great deal" ring with this one and I must say, this one is made MUCH better and has a firmer tension. You pay for a better product and this one is hands down much better than the other one. But we know my husband won't use it much and he actually preferred the lower tension. But I would have kept this ring if not for an unreal price deal on the cheaper one. And I do say cheaper as in price AND quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra-Fit Circle by Balanced Body, November 12, 2017
The Ultra-Fit Circle is the same as the one I have used at the Pilates studio. I have my own Pilates Reformer at home now and I wanted to have some of the same equipment that I am used to using. This circle is very well made and I have had no problems with it. Balanced Body had it securely packaged and it arrived very quickly. I LOVE their products!
