Hi all
I'm looking to learn a ring on band effect and I'm wondering which one to get. Either Mendozas or Pinnacle.
Has anybody learned these routines? and can anybody recomend any of them?

I will be one or the other and I've seen both demos but I'm still not sure which one yet. I'm looking for the most visually amazing if you get my drift.

Thanks in advance.

Magic Café rules!!!!!

"rhing thing" & "found link" by Vince Mendoza are easily the best two rubber band magic tricks that have ever been invented. "rhing thing" compliments "pinnacle" so well that they were just made to be done together, so the answer to your question is "pinnacle" without "rhing thing" is like peanut butter without jelly. It would be a travisty to do one without the other.
I GUARANTEE

Pinnacle, definitely. Easy to learn, the terrific routine makes sense and flows well, and it's a real fooler.

How many of you pinnacle voters actually do both tricks? Let me make myself clear, to do "pinnacle" without the "rhing thing" finish is like doing half a trick.

Al please do not forget to mention The joining... by Jeff pierce this is where ring thing came from,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Al is right both effects are teriffic and both effects go hand and hand.
there is also a another ring and band linking and un linking this is Soimon Arronsons Ringleader and thios can also be incorperated into a beautiful routine in combo with the others nmenbtioned

I do Pinnacle with great delight BUT If the demo of Rhing THing looks like that in person (which I am still waiting for) Then I must say right now its a Keeper. Thanks juggleral for puting me up on this.

I like a couple phases from Pinnacle. And I mix them with Daniel Garcia's routine to make a stunner.

Hey Brian
I'm going to a Daniel Garcia lecture next week. What should I look forward to seeing him do?

You are also right about the end of Pinnacle I do either the rhing thing, or the CMH finish that I learned from both Dan Harlan, and Jay Sankey.

EVERYTHING! Ask him to do "TORN" for you. Also be sure to see him do "Sh4de" & "Rubbermade." There are many more things that I am sure you will see. But those are a few of the best things from his DVDs.

It is only availible on PDF, and only availible from Vince Mendoza himself at: http://www.flipsideproductions.com/MAGIC/FLRT.htm I think Vince's DVD is ready to be released, maybe Vince will read this post and let us all know what new tricks he has up his sleeve.
Vince baby are you listening?

Just remember when you first learn the Mendoza move you must practice it as slow as possible for at least a month. Trust me the move is worth the wait, and it is also easy to see where rhing thing perfectly meshes with Pinnacle.
Have fun
