I'm happy to say that despite my reservations as to whether this would actually be practical in the
real world...it is. My only complaint is that I'm not sure how it will work with Canadian money as
he only explains American money. I'm still glad I got it.

This is a lot of fun. Very easy to perform and checks almost all of the boxes. The only issues
would be the prep time to fold up new rings, you destroy $7 dollars worth of bills to make the
gimmicks, and there is a quick reset that I haven't figured out how to do in public.

I'm beyond frustrated. I received the trick bt since Im Canadian it's useless to me. This CANNOT
work with Canadian bills! I just feel that this should have been noted in the demo and introduction
of the product. Money in the garbage and not pleased

It really does. Like better reactions than pretty much any trick I did last night at the bar and for
reference, other tricks I did were Stigmata using Osterlind's perfected center tear, Helder Skelter
from Red Mirror and an ambitious sequence that uses the Clip Shift as a finale. All those tricks, as
always, got great reactions but not as great as this one and that surprised me.
this would be a neat trick that leaves them with a cool souvenir. I thought reactions would be more
like "oh hey that was neat and now I have a cool ring, thanks!", but in reality the trick is a
miracle that literally people kept asking me to do last night (at least 5 times).
gimmick is easy to make and should take about 10mins. The nice thing is even if you don't use the
ring presentation, you can still do a transpo with it. But really, use the ring. If you try with the
ring and just a plain transpo, you'll definitely notice the ring gets better reactions.
It's not too difficult to do but will require a little bit of practice. With maybe a half hour's
worth of practice you should have it down.
It happens on their hand. It happens with their
dollar. And surprisingly to me at least, it's a miracle.

But I prefer "Atomic Bills" by John T. Sheets, because you borrow all bills for the effect and end

This effect is so-so, and I think it's a great trick. However, wearing the gaff does not suit me but
someone else it might. I prefer Eugene Burger's Last Dollar.

Does exactly what it says! The Gimmick takes some time t make, especially if you are planning
multiple performances in one day. Gimmick construction taught in lots of detail.
itself gets great reactions and i'm likely to perform it if I get the time to make multiple rings.
I like magic that seems organic and situational, where the person doesn't realize that it's magic
until it's done (I also like Self-Tying-Shoelace for the same type of reason). This is really
perfect for that type of magic, and gets a really good response.
Make sure you watch the
supplemental Download you'll get before building the gimmick. I didn't, and he gives an updated
gimmick tutorial that I haven't yet tried, but wish I'd seen before building the initial gimmick,
because it looks a bit better and more manageable.
My only real complaint about the gimmick
is based on experience with the original design, but I'd imagine that it's applicable to the revised
design as well: it's too easy to lose the gimmicked part just during your daily routine, especially
when reaching into tight pockets or handling certain types of materials (can't say more without
giving things away).
He also shows a revised handling in the Download, but I prefer a
slight revision to the original handling (and think I'll probably still prefer it with the updated
gimmick, when I get around to making it).
I don't love Blake's teaching style, but I've
also seen far worse. It's definitely the weak-point on this DVD, but the effect more than makes up
My only other real complaint really has almost nothing to do with Blake or the
effect, but with the basic folding of the ring (which has nothing to do with the gimmicked part).
It's just kind of a pain in the butt to get some of the final tucked folds to stay in place. Also,
spend some time figuring out which finger you want to use, and getting the right size.
Overall: Highly recommended.
I just received Ringer 2.0 it was exactly what I thought it was .You need to contruct gimmick takes
about 10 min very easy to perform with great reactions.All you have to do is just wear it people
will ask you what is on your finger , you offer to make them one .It is the perfect lead in to the
effect.Purchase now you will not be disappointed!!!
This trick is awesome....similar to other bill transpos but the ring on their finger, which is
theirs to keep, takes all the heat! Sweet change, set up is not too hard and is natural, and they
get something to remember you by!
