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.

ALSO INCLUDED is a Ring.

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

READ THIS Report this review
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

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!

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 :-)

Ring Leader Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2003
This is a classy piece of magic that is perfect for any situation. It can be done for any type of magic. You will love it. The ring doesn’t just come on and off the rope it ends up in odd places. It’s amazing.

Good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2003
I love this trick. I take it everywhere I go. I like it. The only reason I give it a four out of five is because sometimes people can find out how I do it. You just need a little practise and a litlle misdirection! Acutally I give it a 4.9 out of 5

bye

Great video! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 2nd, 2003
If its by Gregory Wilson, it's gonna be good! Ring Leader is an excellent video for all those interested in doing high-quality, stunning magic. This video teaches you several ways to borrow a ring and perform miracles with it...some of the best magic one can perform. No gimmicks, no flashy contraptions, just pure, solid magic. Greg Wilson is as fun to watch as he is to learn from. This video is a must-buy for anyone who would like to learn the moves that you can use anytime, anywhere, under any conditions...and will last a lifetime. I highly recommend this video.

The 'best ring/string video EVER! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2003
The value of this video is AMAZING. You get the video which is PACKED with four LONG sections of pure sleights. Instructions for Greg's routine, more USEABLE sleights than you can keep track of, stuff with just rings, rope-only effects, and even one or two with a SPOON! The gold ring and a plush red velvet string is included along with Greg's notes on how to make the routine funny and memorable. It was the most value-packed video I've EVER bought, and I'm glad I bought it from Penguin...

its good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2003
I am a big fan of Gregory Wilson. This is a great routine video, but I am a little scared stiff. Well it has some simple routines too. It's a good video, especially if you like doing street magic stuff.

Ummmm WOW! Report this review

How can you get any more out of a video and at this price?
What a steal, comes with cord and ring! The ringleader routine
is awesome. Then you're treated to more sleights and moves to occupy your time for the next month. If that wasn't enough, he threw in bonuses. Only thing to make this better would have been more time on the instruction of each sleight. However that would have taken forever with all the material. Just get
the slow mo ready and you'll be fine. Greg also has a great personality. Thanks to all of those who reviewed this before I purchased it. You guys were on the money and so is Greg.
