Pros: 1. Very fooling, really seems impossible. 2. The trailer is 100% accurate: Magician really
ties spectator's ring on loop of string, with no sleights, strange knots or any other funny
business. Spectator thoroughly inspects ring and string, and then lowers them into a cup of water.
A few seconds later magician shows hands empty and fishes the loop out of the water (loop really
does comes from the water) but ring is no longer on the loop. Next magician shows hands empty and
fishes ring from water (ring really does come from the water). Spectator can inspect the ring,
loop, and cup of water after the trick -- everything is completely normal, spectator will find
nothing unusual. Magician is totally clean at end of trick, with nothing to ditch or hide. 3.
Video tutorial is clear and short. 4. Trick is extremely easy to do. This trick could be performed
by a third-grader. 5. No angle problems, instant re-set, packs small. 6. At the very least, this
trick will become something I carry every day in my pocket, since it can be performed anywhere at
the drop of a hat and is stunning.
Cons: 1. This trick requires you to use a cup or other
small opaque container of water, such as a dixie cup or paper cup.
It cannot be performed in a
transparent container, such as a glass of water. So it may not be practical for many walk-around
and close-up situations, unless you are willing to carry a dixie cup around with a flask of water.
(2) There is "something extra" you will need to buy to perform this trick. It is not sold at magic
shops but can be obtained online from Amazon. This extra something costs you about $8, including
shipping, and will last about 200 performances before you have to buy a new supply. I am docking
one star because the ad for this trick doesn't warn purchasers that an additional $8 "something
extra" is necessary, and because the video tutorial gives only a general description of this
"something extra" without recommending a brand name or indicating the best size or type to buy.

I saw where someone said they gave this four stars because you have to buy one other thing. Yes,
you do but if you go to Ebay it cost me $1.78 to get TWO of the things (got an extra as a backup).
Super Super Super simple to do, the video is only about ten minutes long and you'll be an expert at
it after watching it. Great for parties or anything else. You can't do it however with a clear cup
but no big deal. Again, the story, whether it's the Houdini idea or something creative you come up
with is really the hardest part, self working after all of that. For about 7 bucks (that's with the
one thing you need to buy and the cost of the download) it's a great trick
Great trick and very easy to perform
It's a great idea , you need to buy two things only , one- the dental floss, two- the gimmick in the
tutorial video that you need to go for a specific store . The video explanation about 10 min
including the demo video. It's short but satisfactory.
