The Ring and all other no-toe-stop-plates are intended for figure skating. Not the most popular discipline in artistic skating. in addition the Ring were so turny, that they were recommended especially for paragraph loops. So no skater wanted to have thrre pair of skates, for artistic, for figure and in addition for paragraph loops within figure skating. Another reason could be, that the plates were really cheap. almost $200 cheaper than the Dance plates, with same effort for manufacturing. Low numbers and small marging kill a product.
