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!
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!
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

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 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
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

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:4 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
-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

I'm a big Gregory Wilson fan and started with this DVD to get there.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
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 :-)

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!2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

Well worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2014
This routine is fantastic! The routine is well put together and gets great reactions. The DVD also teaches a lot of moves not used in the routine, allowing you to combine your own choice of moves together to build your own routine. You get a great routine and a great ring and string education.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Awesome Report this review

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 show1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

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 !!!!!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
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.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
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.

I bought this DVD several years ago hoping to pick up a few tips I could incorporate into the ring and string routine I was already performing. I wasn't expecting much, but what I found was a gold mine of tips and techniques. I never leave home without my string (small cord) in my pocket. I even carry a wedding band with me just in case no one has a ring I can borrow. My favorite thing to do is go into a jewelry store in a mall and ask to see an expensive ring. Then I do killer routine, vanishing the ring entirely at the end. There is always a look of panic that comes over the clerk's face, but when the ring reappears in an impossible location, under impossible conditions, their heart nearly stops. Yes, there are a few sleights invloved, but they aren't difficult. They do require practice to do well, otherwise you will just look foolish. What you need more than sleight of hand skills are presentation skills. It is more about being able to effectively direct your audience's attention to where you want it, and performing all the moves as if you were making NO MOVES AT ALL. Much of the success of this routine will depend entirely upon your abaility to BE a magician...fully confident in your technical skills, but more importantly in your presentation skills. This routine slays the spectators and leaves them KNOWING they have seen real magic. I will not leave home without this, and cannot rcommond this highly enough. I would give it 10 stars if it were possible.
