Just watched the Floating Ring Miracle. That isn't a demo; just a trailer. You really can't see much. If they want to sell this, they should provide a DEMO and a trailer. I'll spend my 25.00 on Terry's award winning routine, before I'll spend over a hundred bucks on this one.

Just my two cents on this...

Has anyone seen Terry's Floating Ring? I like his price much better than Mike's price. I don't smoke, so decided against ordering Fearsons Floating Cigarette, even though it seems to have gotten pretty good reviews.

I'm more interested in the Floating Ring, as I am thinking perhaps it can be borrowed. I'm brand new to this, so just looking for good advice. I will be ordering Vol. 1 & 3 of Ammar's series on the topic soon.

I have seen this but nearly 10 years ago. The anchor is portable, logical and set on the table before the effect. It lasts just a few moments (which makes sense) and is very magical. I think it's a great value. The method is what you think it is, but the "getting in, getting out" is what you're paying for.

Thanks Doug, I appreciate that info. I think before I order this from Terry, I will perhaps get Mike Ammar's DVD series; study what he has to say and share, and then decide. I wish Terry had a little demo up on his site. The teaser trailer for Mike's just doesn't sell me. Perhaps an actual demo might, but, 100 U.S. is a lot of coin to drop, just to learn to float a ring, IMHO, only.

A prolonged float such as this is NOT the way to effectively float an object in my opinion because some laymen will conclude that the method involves thread or magnets. I use Mesika's method in a 3-part routine that I created and the ring floats for no more than a couple of seconds. Less is more in my opinion.

Terry Lunceford's floating finger ring routine has been mentioned. I did not know that this could be purchased as a stand-alone item. I have the routine on a VHS tape by Terry.

The tape was produced by Working Wonders in 1993. It is called "Terry Lunceford's Ring Video". Not only do you receive his great finger ring routine at the end as a bonus, but you receive his Chinese Linking Ring routine also.

His floating finger ring routine can be used easily while doing Restaurant work. It floats the ring horizontally and is basically self contained. Easy on, easy off.

I strongly agree with Larry. Mesika's Loops provide an inexpensive and very convincing manner as to float a ring. His ring floating effect can be found in his book on Loops (the name escape me).

Animated Miracles! Just received it a couple weeks ago. Very nice little 19 page manual. Some pretty cool ideas inside. If you have 'limited' knowledge of Loops, as I do, it's a great place to start. Definitely recommended.

WTF???

This is just a standard floating ring. People have been doing this since the reels hit the market. What makes it special? $100? Yeesh. Also, that demo video is dreadful...you can't really see the effect.

Terry Lunceford's floating finger ring routine

Where can it be found? Either Book or DVD? No VHS.

I've been told Zack it's just a Teaser Trailer. I also found it of no use. You can't see anything. You can barely see the ring throughout the trailer. But, No 'demo' is planned, from what I'm told. I don't know how they can expect anyone to drop 100 bucks. But, I'm sure many will. Apparently, a 'portion' of the 100, is for the ITR you receive.

Hey Christopher, I was wondering if you could post a demo video of you performing this trick?

Great idea....what do you think Christopher; is that possible, since no demo is coming from the creator?

I like the description of Terry Lunceford's effect found in Brown's Absolute Magic.

Just found a demo of this on Elmwood Magid site, but it turned out to be just the same POOR quality teaser trailer. Very difficult to even see the ring through this. You'd think for the money Mike is asking for this short routine, he would want a GOOD demo to watch online. I really believe the only 'value' you are really getting is the ITR that apparently comes with this.

Just my thoughts.
