I am in the process of updating a show for this summers season and trying to figure out which linking ring routine to do (been doing symphony but need a change). I know we all have our own favorites and I would like to know what your favorite published routine is... and why. I need about 4 to 5 minutes.

Henry Hay's _The Amateur Magician's Handbook_ has a basic routine including the figures like the swing, the globe, the flower.. But this is mainly the basic routine with no patter suggestions, so I think working up your own approach to presentation would maybe add a couple of minutes to the routine. I think to get five minutes you would pretty much have to use all eight rings rather than the smaller number (six, five, or even three) preferred by many magicians today.

I would recommend getting L&L's World's Greatest dvd pertaining to the Linking Rings. See different styles and number of rings. Then make your own routine. Some ideas for you...play with different sizes at the same time, adapt a story to a ring routine (for example..Moby Dick). The rings rock in my book.

5 minute silent linking ring routine seems long. After the first couple minutes I'd would be saying "Yea, I get it"

Whit, I absolutely LOVE your 4 ring routine. Am hoping to work it into a trade show presentation I have coming up. May I ask what rings (size, manufacturer) you recommend? Which ones did you use in the video.google.com link above?

Thanks so much.

Bronx, Whit Haden has mentioned about his rings many times on the Café. He uses the the Rolls Royce of Linking Rings. Owen Magic Supreme click here If I remember correctly, he uses the 15" rings currently. Very, Very expensive!

Whit, I love your routine and very funny, I couldn't stop laughing and your facial expression you make really added that humor too. Thanks for sharing that with us here on the Café'.

It doesn't matter what rings you use for Whit's routine. The dramatic structure is what makes it work. Whit created the routine on the street. I use 10 inch rings to do it and other routines. Chris Capehart told me I should get a set of cheap 10" rings because they work best.

The best routine I ever saw was from Rick Thomas at the Sahara hotel. Wonderful routine with strong reactions from the audience.

I have to say that I swore for years that I'd never do the linking rings..for no real good reason other than, to me, it seemed so "common".

But now, I can't tell you how much I love performing Whit Hayden's 4 ring routine. The concept is so entertaining, and perfect for my style. We as magicians can be very "impressive" with the miracles that we do...and the audience needs to see US as the one being "fooled". That's why I like Whit's routine so much!

I've always liked Allen Hayden's ring routine. I believe he published it in his lecture notes.

Al Schneider's routine (Free) on his website is worth checking out.
