Aluminum Circa Discs 1 12 inch Set of 11
Hard to turn pages, but otherwise great!
I recently got a circa leather foldover notebook as a gift, and I wanted slightly larger rings, in aluminum, for durability. The rings are great... but... the circa pages are much more difficult to turn in the 1-1/2 inch size than they are in the 3/4 size.
I wish I had gotten the 1 inch size instead. I couldn't use the 1-1/2 in my folio because turning the paper was just not convenient. I threw the rings on a pair of dividers and now use the 1-1/2 inch rings for archiving and storing paper until I need it.
So, works great for that... not so great if you need to flip pages often like I do. If you need to flip through pages, I don't recommend anything over an inch.
The aluminum is really nice. The material is sooo smooth, which does make it easier than the plastic rings for general use, but with either plastic or aluminum, the 1-1/2 inch size is not great for fast turning of pages.
