For those who are new to magic or don't know about Richard Ross. This linking ring routine is a classic. Not many before him performed a linking rings routine with only 3 rings. It's one of his trade marks. The only complaint I can make about this video is it' cuts off in the middle of the routine.

It would be nice to see the rest of the routine some day. I like the combination of whimsy and humor he manages to project in his handling of the rings. I'm a minimalist at heart, and so more isn't always better. Three rings/balls/cups seems a natural number to me. Although different in style and approach, Chris Capeheart has a very nice three ring routine too.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's a much longer video of him performing the linking rings. It's also a much more recent one. This is what he looked like when I meet him. It's unfortunate that he passed away not long ago.

What I love about his style is there's no "Banging" moves. They melt through.

Thanks for this link, Ron. Amazing performance. Shame to see so many sub-standard performances of the rings today.

I have to disagree , there's a lot of guys that are tremendous with the rings of today. There is a guy named Greg Wang in Hawaii he has the most beatiful ring routine that I ever seen. Ask Curtis Kam about him he'll tell ya. Simply amazing.

Of course there are some excellent ring workers today. Several names come to mind. However, that doesn't cancel out the fact that I have seen some terrible renditions of it which really need a lot more work and attention to detail.

Hi Jaxon

Never seen or heard of Richard Ross before. Stunningly magical work! Now that I have seen him I will not forget.

Is there somewhere to learn this approach?

all the best

I met this chap at the Olympics. I said to him, "Excuse me but are you a pole vaulter?" he replied "No, I'm German, but how did you know my name was Walter?"

Richard Ross, Volume 27 (Video)

Richard teaches his linking rings on this video. It also has some awesome Multiplying balls and Vanishing and appearing cane tricks. There are some other interesting items in this video too (Invisible thumb tip is kind of funny).

Hi Ron.

I checked out the video you recommended but had a lot of reservation as regards playing it here in Europe.

But for those who are interested, I came across "Linking Rings - Greater Magic Library" DVD, this features Richard Ross's two routines as well as routines by a number of other performers - I'll be buying this one I think.

Thanks for introducing me to this fantastic performer. In the last couple of days I found out loads about him.... the wonders of the internet!

Again, thanks for your help Ron.

All the best
