Collar with bondage ring v Locking collar with mini bondage rings. Why the big price difference?

ArcaneBlast ArcaneBlast 12/07/2012

I was going through collars and found these two, both by Spartacus. What is the big difference that justifies the price difference?

They're so similar in terms of design, does one of them seem better? Why or why not?

The top one has multiple rings on it. Hence the raised price.

An extra 28 dollars for another ring? That seems reasonable

Are you sure there isn't another reason? I'm not exactly sure the difference between the bottom's strap and a 'locking' collar so if it's that please explain.

The top one has three rings instead of one, and a way that you can lock it. A lot of people like the fact that you can lock the buckle--it makes it a little more heavy duty BDSM, and adds a layer of psychological excitement for sub/Dom roles if you can't take it off until your Dom unlocks you. The three rings make it more versatile too, because there are more ways you can tie someone up or to something.

I have the three ring locking collar, and I LOVE it. Seriously. It's fucking sexy as hell. The other one is fine too, but the design really is different.

At first I thought they looked the same, but the first one looks like it has more hardware on it.

You know the part of the buckle that sticks through the holes on the other end? (I'm not sure what it's called) That, instead of being a straight piece of metal, ends in a loop that a small padlock can be put through.
That's why, in the picture of the locking collar, the holes are more elongated instead of being round.
Oh, here, I found a picture - if you scroll down that should show it better than I'm explaining it (about halfway down the page in this link:

My collar locks, and I love it! Like Supervixen said, it adds to the psychological excitement for me, since I can't get it off myself.

Beat me to it!

I don't get why people are saying they are the same collar. If you simply look at them, you can see that they are different.

The locking one is clearly a better collar, with the ability to lock it and the multiple rings. I would have expected it to cost more than the other one.

BUT--for people who aren't into heavy bdsm, the simpler one will be just as fun for a lot less money. I don't think the locking collar is so much better that it should cost almost twice as much.

Well, I should have looked more carefully before I voted. The locking one is nicer.

The locking collar does have more features, but the price increase seems steep to me too. Guess it depends on whether you want more options or more money left over!

One is 27 and the other is 55. Is there enough of a difference to justify this price discrepancy? Explain.
