This gimmick is astounding! Ok, its horrible for the suggested close up routine. But for stage..
This is the effect they will be talking about for years! I use this baby after the Chinese linking
rings in my stage show. It blows people away! I have performed it dozens of times, and know one has
ever questioned it! IT IS POWERFUL!!!!

I had the old version of the himber ring which I used for my act, and don't get me wrong the "solid"
gold band was great. But staggering is much better for in the hand holding of the spectators, and
what with all these new and goofy rings from clothing stores it fits right in.

I think the StaggeRing looks really obvious. There are little hinge-looking things going all the
way around the ring. I like to play with the thing but it I'm not brave enough to think this will
hold up to any audience scrutiny.
That being said. I have seen to professional magicians
use the StaggeRing to great effect. Chris Angel used two stooges to borrow wedding rings and link
them. I also seen Jason Latimer, in front of about 2,000 people, borrow three rings and swap out
for the StaggeRing. On the big screen monitor, I could easily see that it was the same StaggeRing I
own. I have to say that it blew people away. So in the right setting I think this could be a good
a little tight for me IF one size bigger will be better
A lot of people are posting that this trick is not for the stage or just too flimsy or not
examinable. But you have to do this right. I bought this trick and have been using a routine that
i saw at a Steve Wyrick magic show and if you do it the way he does it,.. you'll have no problem.
Tip: go to las vegas and watch Steve Wyrick.
It's just bad!
I got it with the Ring leader DVD because it comes with the package but it's
really not good! It's not in the least bit examinable and the gimmick is so flimsy it's going to
break off after a few uses...
The DVD is absolutely superb though and you can use the ring
to practice the moves cause you don't need the gimmick to do the moves as it's all sleight of hand.
Just don't buy it as a stand alone!
It is a good idea and it looks pretty nice, but the main problem with it is that it's just too dodgy
a trick to give real amazement. Mainly because you need to cover it up so as not to reveal the
mechanism, and in the routine! It makes your spectators turn away then they look again and they're
all linked... thats pretty much telling them its ur ring thats gimmicked.
It would take
genious handling to make it seem magical, and no matter how good or well constructed the prop is,
it's just a bit too suspicious...
Looks good though! :D
I'm sorry guys but it's very not examinable, very obvious, and just a clumsy gimmick. It's also not
really meant for stage, it's a tad small for that. I got it for free with ring leader, which is like
an impomptu, smoother, and more examinable version of this. Don't waste your money on this, get ring
The ring is well made, and is complete examinable because of the quality. However, the instructions
for this is lousy and unclear. Penguin should try to come out with an explanation video for this, or
get the manufacturer to come out with better instructions. At that price this would be what we
Although I knew how the himber ring worked long before purchasing one, I didn't expect it to be
built so well. It took me nearly 5 minutes of fiddling around to find the "spot" on the ring...
imagine handing this out to the lay people, they won't see a thing. I personally do not have much
chance to perform this, but the reaction from a single performance is worth the trouble... besides,
Penguin is one of the few places that sell it this cheap.
