----oO Tony Clark’s Slydini Tribute Routine Oo----

*************PAPER BALLS AND RINGS****************

Finally after 20 years of constant requests this routine is now available!

This routine is Tony Clark’s rendition of Slydini’s Paper Balls in box. Tony’s version uses three borrowed finger rings that are wrapped inside tissue paper balls and invisibly travel one by one through the air into an empty cardboard box on the other side of the table. In the mind-blowing surprise ending, the three spectator’s rings disappear from the paper balls and appear inside a locked wooden ring box that magically appears from the same empty cardboard box! Tony has performed this very elegant and powerful routine all over the world including his show in Lake Tahoe and the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, Ca. This will be one they’ll always remember.

Special Note: Tony’s version involves No Lapping or difficult transfers. You can perform it without a tablecloth. From the moment you begin, you’re literally three steps ahead of the audience. Tony takes you through this incredible routine step-by-step explaining every detail, move and subtlety.



Segment 1 – The Props

  • Wooden box
  • Portable servant
  • Cardboard box
  • Tissue paper (type and size)
  • Music style

Segment 2 – The Set up

  • Tissue ball preset
  • Position of boxes
  • Position of body

Segment 3 – The Routine

  • Collecting the rings / the right rings to use
  • Tissue ball loading move - Loading the tissue balls into the cardboard box. This is the fooler. It puts you three steps ahead
  • Wrapping the Rings
  • The vanishes (3 different ones for variety)
  • Loading the ring box

Segment 4- Original Version

  • Take a look at Slydini Footage
  • Show some moves from the original version.
  • Finale Comments – be sure to believe what your doing. Really see the balls flying through the air. See the balls inside the box as they arrive one by one. Move the body from side to side in a flowing motion.
    Find music that means something to you. The audience will feel the intensity if it’s real.

***Special thanks to David Roth for inspiring this routine. While studying with him almost twenty years ago, we always spoke about how the paper balls in the box could involve the audience more giving the paper balls more meaning.
