Picture this - A spectator's ring is magically plucked off the center of a rope and just as effortlessly thrown back on - without letting go of the ends! In a flurry of non-stop action, the ring takes on a life of its own - it hops and pops, slips and slides, jumps and bumps, moves and grooves. In other words, you can't stop it!

Now for the ultimate con - While everyone's staring at the ring trapped on the cord, it instantly and invisibly changes into YOUR RING! Where's the spectator's ring? Back on your finger! Talk about pulling a fast one!

We know what you're thinking - there's got to be a ton of gimmicks, gaffs, gizmos and gadgets... Nope. Only Greg!

Best of all, the 'security cord' is so cleverly motivated that the audience bites into your premise hook, line and sinker. So put that dirty, nasty shoelace back where it belongs - on your shoe!

String Your Audience Along With

Ring Leader - Greg's 6 phase eye-popping, jaw-dropping, nostril-flaring routine.

Familiar Ring - The classic moves that started it all by such notables as Ray Grismer, Scotty York, Earl Nelson, Jay Scott Berry, Dan Garrett and others.

Ring Master - Put your audience through the ringer with the diabolically cunning moves of David Grippenwaldt - one of magic's best kept secrets.

Fraternal Ring - Grip and Greg put their heads together to come up with some brand new doozies.

Manufacturer Says

There's never been another video like this. This is the most comprehensive ring and rope video ever! With over 30 moves, gags and stunts to choose from, you'll even get rings around your eyes! So, don't be a follower, be a ring leader today!

Please note: When Ring Leader first came out (on VHS), the package included a three foot segment of velvet cord. This was the same cord you see Greg performing with throughout the DVD. Recently, the manufacturer of this velvet cord has discontinued it, and it is no longer available. As a substitute we now include a three foot segment of ribbon. This is an excellent alternative to the velvet cord and allow you to perform all routines in the DVD. We recommend using whichever material best fits your performing style and character.

What You Get

This package includes a ribbon absolutely PERFECT for performing the routines taught on RING LEADER!! Since all of the routines you'll learn use a non-gimmicked "rope", we recommend choosing whichever material best fits your performance style and character.

The effect is 5 Stars Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2013
Ok I bought this effect thinking it would be easy to perform. I think I bought it almost 1.5 yrs ago. Only in the last 2 months did I feel confident enough to perform.Having said that - the wait, effort and practice was well worth it. This is the trick I do to the managers and the Big Boys. This is what they remember. This is a reputation maker. Their ring.

4 stars:
1. When I bought it, it came with a ribbon and no cord - I think it still comes with that. I wish it came with a cord. I use a shoelace that Greg says you must not use because it is a shoe lace - but in all honesty it is better in my opinion than the ribbon which is a bit "eh".

2. There are some sleights that I would love to use but Greg doesn't show you them in performance mode - only in explanation, which leaves it up to the watcher to figure out what to do/say when doing "the move". If I'm paying so much for this DVD then I want to be spoonfed.

It kills me to write the above because Greg is incredible and I love his work. But the 2 points above are minor because the routine gets remarks like: "HOLY ****!" and "How the F did you do that?????" Therefore this is worth it. I carry my "rope" with me wherever I go... and no - not on my shoe hahaha. Add to cart

Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2012
the ideas and the routines are really good. well, it takes some practice(more than usual)to find a complete routine that suits you and master it. there are two reasons I give it only three star:
-First, it is quite expensive.
-Second, the dvd could be a bit more helpful at some points. you are probably going to understand every routine but sometimes it will be quite difficult...
All in all, if you are willing to practice it a lot before you try it in public, give it a try

Great Update Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 6th, 2013
I'm a big Gregory Wilson fan and started with this DVD to get there.

To be honest I don't perform the routine much anymore but use a lot of the elements taught from here. His tips on misdirection, the way he researched to build the routine and even his tips on selling the sleights.

Although I don't use it much, when I did, this was an effect constantly requested. I know other magicians who built their restaurant careers off of this and still perform it professionally.

I love this routine and really enoyed every second of learning it.

After you buy this DVD (because you should!) check out Rope, Nut, Knot. With the two resources together you could construct one crazy great routine :-)

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2011
Wilson goes a little fast in the explanations, but after watching the DVD a few times, it is easy to perform the effects. He gives you so much material to work with. You can easily pick 4 or 5 effects out of the batch and make your own ruin that fits you best. Excellent buy!

Awesome Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2013
One of my all time favorite illusions to perform. 100% Sleight of hand and pure skill. Requires practice and confidence, but definitely worth the time. I sometimes use this as a finale for a show

awesome stuff here... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 4th, 2013
I purchased this dvd some time ago and wasn't disappointed at the least. I like to walk around with the least amount of gimmicks as possible and this allows me to do just that while at the same time giving my cards a rest. The routines on this dvd are pleasantly put together to build for a trick that can get huge responses... I discovered that adding pro flight to the end of this routine is KILLER !!!!! dead ass serious !... look into the two and see for yourself.... Add deluxe nest of wallets and you have a solid full routine and still can walk around comfortably without feeling loaded with gimmicks on your person... Oh and your always ready !!!!!

Packed full of ring and rope moves Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2012
Generally a very solid DVD. I bagged this as part of a Penguin deal and would probably baulk at paying the asking price.
Nonetheless, Wilson clearly and entertainingly explains a range of utility ring and rope/ string moves, many of which are really quite magical.
The DVD loses a star as I feel Wilson should have done a 'walk through' of his performance, explaining each move in order. This would allow the viewer to more easily replicate his fun and baffling routine.

Great material Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2012
Everything in this DVD is commercial workable material that works in the real world. Greg doesn't sell poorly thought out never worked stuff like so many others (trying to make a buck). Greg's material is carefully considered and well worth the time to learn

Excellent Report this review

I wrote a post earlier about the fact that I got a ribbon instead of a cord, but after actually practicing the routines, I find the ribbon to be easier to use. I decided to find a rope/cord and I actually found it harder to work with. So the ribbon is a fantastic substitute.

I did find that some of the explinations are rushed a bit and as a result I had to slow it down and rewind multiple times. So thats my -1 star.

Otherwise it very very entertaining and laymen love it!

It seems a bit expensive at first but you will definitively get a working ring and string routine out of this
