A revolutionary new take on a classic of magic from Vanishing Inc. and underground Venezuelan magic legend Ernesto Melero.

To truly offer a new approach to a classic of magic, you often need to re-write the rules. And that's exactly what has been done with the incredible "Melero Rings."

This premium quality set of close-up linking rings is the result of a life spent studying these iconic props. It uses a never-before-seen gimmick that allows you to achieve previously impossible links and unlinks. This includes the ability to link all four rings while holding ONLY the top ring. The "Melero Rings" enable you to perform all your favorite linking rings routines and SO MUCH MORE!

Crafted from a gorgeous, scratch-resistant iron with seamless chrome plating, these rings were built with workers in mind. They are perfect for both close-up workers and parlor magicians, and are easily transported with the included ballistic foam carrying case.

Each set of the "Melero Rings" comes with nearly an hour of online video instruction geared toward all skill levels from beginner magicians to seasoned professionals. While you will learn a full routine (which can be seen in the trailer), each component is modular, meaning you can choose which parts and moves work best for you.

These elegant and modern rings are a giant leap forward for the linking rings and are a set you'll be proud to own.

Product specifications: Each ring is 5" in diameter and is chrome plated.

To provide another perspective from the negative review, the rings are VERY well made (nearly invisible welds, heavy chrome finish) and the gimmick IS new and unlike anything I've seen. Although the new key ring is not "high-tech" (no flaps, magnets, trap doors, etc.) it is still ingenious. More importantly, you can do ALL the traditional Ninja Rings moves with this set (although the rings are slightly larger at 5") PLUS you have the ability with the new key ring to link in a chain of four and display by holding the chain from the top ring, balanced on one finger! Yes, eye level of your spectators needs to be managed (not difficult), but any working performer can handle this and know when this display is practical. Oh, did I mention that the rings are incredibly high quality for $45? There isn't another set out there near that price offering what the Melero Rings does. Highly recommended for the worker or serious hobbyist.

I received these rings today and I'm very disappointed in them. Without saying too much, I will just say that this is basically not a new gimmick. Plus, for me at least, the rings are too hard, very little give or take with them. There is a feature on the key ring that is different, but it does not help me in making it smoother. This reminds me of the disappointment many felts when ordering the so-called "Melt" rings a couple of years back. If you are good at the rings, then this may just be up your ally. With arthritis in my hands (which makes even typing now more difficult) these rings are not what I had hoped for. There is really not much to see here. The price is reasonable for good, standard linking rings as that is basically what your getting.

very good rings for the money Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2021
Okay, the rings arrived today and here is my review:

First, Michael O'Briens'review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49nJgzlyEwo) is spot on, they are, in fact, very good rings for the money. They come with a nice case, which is a good addition at this price point. If you look closely, you can see where they were welded (mine have a slight tarnish on that spot). This is nit picky, especially for the price. If you are expecting a new, space-age, high-tech gimmick, you will be disappointed. I figured it out, before purchasing, from watching 3 different reviews. This new key ring will, however, allow you to do a clean display of the rings, if the audience is directly in front of you. Like Chessmann pointed out, you will need to note the orientation of the key ring. I was thinking about asking a machinist to add this to my 6" rings and things rings set. I do not think, however, that this new key ring would work for sets larger than 6". And yes, you will be able to do all of the routines that you normally do with a four ring set.

The routines and teaching are very good. I found myself wondering,"hey, which one is the key ring?" a few times during the performances. There are no words, but the over the shoulder shots are nice. There are subtitles, but there where some phases in which they were noticeably missing and really needed. I also must say that I miss chapters in tutorial videos. There is an hour of teaching, which is wonderful in today's, "15 minute explanation" marketplace. I will also be joining Michael O'Briens'page to get his routine. It is a bargain at $1 a month!

Okay, so if you are looking for a "magician fooler," miracle gimmick, keep your $ in your wallet. I personally, have never understood the desire for effects that are "magicians foolers"because, I never made any $ off of magicians! (I could write an essay on "magician foolers.") Do you need this set, if you already have a good one? The answer is no, unless, of course, you want to do a clean display of the rings when the audience is directly in front of you. If you are looking for good routines and teaching along with a solid affordable set of rings, look no further. (I and many are others eagerly awaiting an expansion pack.)I recommend these, but then again, who the f__k am I!

I have bought many ring sets over the years, large, small, magnetic, ninja, but I really like the Melero rings best, right now. The subtle design difference and the great routines taught are really exceptional. I only wish it had come with one more ring, but that I can easily remedy. If you are looking for an anywhere ring routine that really entertains, this is it.

I'm very disappointed in this product, as it is really not that innovative, in my opinion. Without giving too much away, this is basically not a new gimmick. It does have a minor, different feature on the key ring, but essentially it is still just a basic ring. Plus, for my taste, the rings are too hard, very little give or take with them. If you are good at using the ninja rings, then this may just be up your ally. The price is reasonable for good, standard linking rings, and that is basically what your getting.

Good gimmick good tutorial Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2021
I like these. The "new" key ring does make a difference. I have some older rings of a similar size, and the Melero rings look more "real" when linked. Good work! I learned a couple of interesting changes on things I have been doing for years!

The video was good, but could be better, particularly when handling all four rings at once. This is what needs to be practiced (but it is worth it).

The case is perfect.
