Scott F. Guinn
Symphony for Ring & String by Scott F. Guinn

Scott's finger ring and string routine flows along in a harmonious blend of magic! This is strong, commercial, practical magic with ordinary items. Pure sleight of hand accomplishes the powerful magic, but it's nothing difficult to learn. This is a routine you'll be proud to include in your performing arsenal. A great routine for all skill levels and virtually any close-up performing situation!

A string is held at both ends and the loop is dipped into a purse clasp (coin purse with no bag). When the string is lifted out of the clasp, a ring is dangling from the loop! The ring penetrates off...

Scott F. Guinn
Great Scott's Ring and Rope Routine by Scott F. Guinn

Another routine that has helped to earn Scott's reputation, both in the magic community and with lay-audiences. Combining some well known moves with some that will be new to you, this is a multi-phased routine where a solid metal ring magically penetrates on and off an ordinary rope. The penetrations become progressively more clean and amazing, leading up to a killer finale!

The ring and rope are completely unprepared and may be examined. The ring is never just put on or taken off the rope--it goes on magically, and then it comes off magically. It is also modular, so you can do the whole...

Slink by (Benny) Ben Harris

Use any Russian Wedding Band (for example search 'Russian Wedding Ring' on Amazon)

Tony Chapparo
Airborne by Tony Chapparo

Daryl Easton
Ring, Rope and Wand by Daryl Easton

This is a wonderfully visual and very simple routine. No gimmicks required. One simple move does the trick.

All you need is a wand, stick or pencil, a piece of rope and a borrowed finger ring. You ask two spectators to assist you. Rope, ring and wand are examined. Then the ring is fairly and openly put on the center of the rope. The magician covers the ring with his hand, each spectator holds with one hand an end of the rope and with the other hand an end of the wand. The ring magically jumps from the rope onto the wand. Voila!

Simple to perform and suitable for the beginner.

Slydini's Linking Pins by D. Angelo Ferri

I have studied a linking pin routine myself many years ago. It wasn't this Slydini routine, but the effect is very strong because safety-pins are familiar to everyone. And if you can do something magical with a common object then you have a miracle at your hands. Now you can learn a routine which the master of misdirection devised himself.

Dennis writes:

Slydini taught me his Linking Pins Routine sometime in the late 1970's. For several Thanksgiving's, during that period of time, Slydini arranged for several of his students, including myself, to perform at the Windows on the World Restaurant,...

Slydini's Linking Rings by D. Angelo Ferri

Slydini's Linking Ring Routine is a show stopper. Layman love it and magicians schooled in the Linking Rings are puzzled by it. It is everything a stage routine should be, entertaining and mystifying. This 91 page manuscript includes over 100 instructional photos and careful descriptions of each phase of the routine. Slydini's Rings are not 'quiet'. This is a classic conception. The rings are linked and then all the rings are handed out for inspection. An impromptu assistant is invited on stage and a very entertaining interaction between the magician and his impromptu assistant takes place. The assistant...

Big Ring on String by L. C. Collier

A parlor sized ring with a stage sized routine.

This is a compact ring and string routine which uses some of the most visual moves one can do with these props. For many years I have performed a very similar routine. I used a red cotton ribbon instead of the standard white rope, because a ribbon lies flat on the ring and is wider than a rope allowing for some sequences a stronger illusion.

Alan Rorrison
Pulled by Alan Rorrison

The Linking Rings effect is a classic of magic and for good reason: a direct and simple method coupled with the visual aspect of the props have made this a strong hold in most magicians' working arsenals.

So what is wrong with the original that a new one needs to be brought forth? Well, here are a few small points to take into consideration:

  • The old rings are too big for any real world worker
  • They are too expensive in most cases
  • Large rings simply look like a magic prop
  • The routine rarely has any motivation
  • People simply get bored of the routine
Pulled solves all these points and...

Symphony of the Rings by Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon

Lewis Ganson expertly and with care to minute details explains the famous six ring routine devised by Dai Vernon. Vernon first performed the entire routine in front of Ganson's cine camera. By studying the film in slow motion, they were able to determine the most suitable photographs to take with a still camera to illustrate the text.

Many considered the best and most beautiful routine for the Chinese Linking Rings. You can see Vernon perform this routine in Dai Vernon in Britain 1958.
