I'm looking for a high quality PK Ring - that can stand up for everyday wear. I think my last one lasted just over a week. -
Thanks

I believe you will have to accept the fact that PK rings are fragile and brittle. That is the inherent physical property of it. You'll need to just wear it in anticipation or prior to well knowing you will be using it.
Heck, it can crack even wearing it from attracting something to fast and with the right amount of weight.

I'll check back later if someone knows of such a ring that can handle the rigors of long periods of wear.

The Wizard rings are the only way to go.

Been using my ring from Supermagnetman for 2 years or so. Great quality.

An alternative is to use Hank Morfins "The Any Ring PK Gimmick". Not in use until you need it. 2 second get ready. So any ring you already wear can be utilized. Just a thought.

I have mine broken one week ago.It just fall from my hands without placing force on it.I had it for more than one year without problems and as far as I can see the magnetiv powers that are developped inside make it even more fragile.personally I do not know the "any ring pk gimmick" but from what I believe it is, you will not get the power that pk rings have.
buy a wizard ring, be more careful and if it breaks you can exchange it for a new one with 6 gbp ( http://www.worldmagicstore.com/wizard-ri......4d07l456 )

Harry,

The Any Ring PK Gimmick is stronger than any PK ring. I have both.

In emergency cases like sliding a Michael Night gimmick under a ring on my right ring finger that I pull slightly towardds the middle of the lower knuckle. The magnet is under the outer end of middle knuckle and not at the base of the ring finger: this is a much more convenient location for the magnet offering a more versatile choice of moves (including as a side magnet for C&Bs)

Another solution for a better magnet location is to position it where it's the most convenient and to cover it with a band aid. It's an interesting fact that spectators are not "aware" of the band aid even though it is plainly visible. This enables to position the mag**t optimally for whatever use you may need it.

Ot eevery one places the band aid at the same place
Eric Jones places it on its inner forearm for production and he developped very smart moves to be able to steal a coins set in front of the people without them seeing it

Another (sorry I forgot the name) stuck it behind his neck with an opening up to load or ditch a coin while rubbing his elbow with the other hand

I'm sticking it on the inner part of the second knuckle of the ring finger (not in the middle but closer to the tip of the finger) for doing an impromptu (side) chop cup anywhere with any cup (but having to supply the balls and the large load)

This is so versatile that, for sure, there are some use that we didn't think about as yet

Im looking for a new one as well. I only had my ring for a week when it broke into 2 pieces,I thought it was just me and my bad luck but I was wearing it every day too.Are all the rings sized the same or will it vary a little?I think ill buy multiples this time,a back up wouldnt go astray.Love the band aid idea as well Lawrence.

A great idea would be to use a band aid with a mini neomidium ala "i cut myself opening a prediction envellope, who said Magic wasn't without risks?"

(Got this idea from the Café)
