    It is in the Item Database but people don't know what the hell it is on the realms. Does it exist?

    Only droppable by the Reziarfg. He can only be spawned if you squish all the bunnies in act 5.

    Or, in other words:
    No, they never existed, and never will. They are simply overpowered.

    Probably was added in the database as a joke or something.

    Not added as a joke, but was briefly on Arreat Summit itself when GFraizer or someone else goofed up and leaked the entire work-in-progress Arreat Summit for Patch 1.10 when they were doing some sort of web server maintenance. Diabloii.net took it then. Later Patch 1.10 was released, and some items were gone, including this one. So it was probably part of a 1.10 beta but removed later.

    Imo they are not that overpowered, if you ask me they should have 35% magic absorb, magic attack hits too hard right now, and theres no way to negate it.

    I have heard of these actually being in the game; someone on these forums had a pair on the europe realms. He had gotten them from someone he knew; probably hacked out of bnet somehow like the constricting ring.

    Problably fake, unless they managed to get a connection between open and closed bnet again.

    "What's Merman's Sprocket. If this doesn't get me banned I'll admit I used to own one. Is it a bugged item, something never releasd in the game (constricting rings!)"

    "I've done my research and it appears Merman's Sprocket is no more than a place holder unique, meaning the pair I owned must have not been from decent sources."

    From Space Loner's Item Guide

    That about explains it; the guide is nice as it lists all runewords (pgs2-4) along with every item in the game. Just use the search thread function, and whatever you want to know about will come right up.
