The vid for this looked real good...of course, coming from Greg Wilson, I would never expect anything but the best!

The video looks like it's taken from the ol' Ring Leader where it first came out... lol Smile

It says that the dvd won't have the velvet cord with it like it did with the video. Does anyone know how hard it might be to find a velvet cord?

This is one of my FAVORITE videos.

It's not a himber ring--it's a regular "practice" ring. The routine itself uses no gimmicks or special rings.

Sigh...as a preorder special from penguin, those who preordered received (well apparently) the Velvet cord, a Stagge (himber) ring, and the video and paid 39.95, not 49.95. I add the "apparently" because my order has not arrived. If it shows up with a shoe-lace and a ribbon as per what is now written on the Penguin site, I'm not going to be happy!

You don't need a himber ring, nor did I say you did; but it was what was given out as a special offer.

[edit]

Apparently you still get the Stagge ring:

from penguin: "What You Get: This package includes a shoe-lace and a ribbon. Both are 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.

ALSO INCLUDED as a limited time FREE BONUS is a StaggeRing (a 29.95 value!) The StaggeRing is a perfect size and weight to use as you practice the routine, PLUS you can use it as a Himber Ring in your act. All routines taught on Ring Leader use ungimmicked rings"

This is stated at Penguin Magic - Please note: When Ring Leader first came out (on VHS), the package included a three foot segment of velvet cord. This was the same cord you see Greg performing with throughout the DVD. Recently, the manufacturer of this velvet cord has discontinued it, and it is no longer available. As a substitute we now include both a shoe lace and a three foot segment of ribbon. These are both excellent alternatives to the velvet cord and allow you to perform all routines in the DVD. We recommend using whichever material best fits your performing style and character.
When did the manufacturer runs out of the velvet cord? I am also bummed about this. And the price I paid is $49.95 advertised on Penguin Magic.

I have found that to be the trouble with pre-order. You are paying for something that the dealer does not even have yet, so how can they accurately tell you what you are going to recieve. I agree the $10 price break is good but not if you are getting incorrect props. I do a different routine that uses a shoelace and it works fine. However, I understand that what Greg uses is much nicer and should be included as stated.

I got my Ring LEader DVD and as promised, it came with a velvet cord (3 ft) approx the same quality as that which came with the original VHS version a few years ago. Also, came with a golden colored StaggeRing as advertised on Penguin's site when I pre-ordered it. So, despite all the Penguin-basjing, I feel that Penguin has fully delivered on its promise - on-time and complete.

Yes, I also rec'd my Ring Leader dvd with the velvet cord and StaggerRing. Is this StaggerRing just for practice like a regular ring? I don't see any instruction as far as how this ring is suppose to work.

My understanding is its a bonus effect and should come with instructions etc...I have not recieved mine yet and obviously will not until after Xmas....though I ordered some time ago...I am anticipating instructions....though.....maybe there is something in the Penguins Only section of the Penguin Wegsite.
