Has anyone tried this routine from his book "Try the Impossible" the writing is good but it is very hard to follow I guess. just wondering if anyone has had success with it in the real world.

Yes. It is very difficult to follow especially if you have no prior band experience. If you haven't seen the demo I suggest you go to Aronson's site and check it out. It is very powerful as a show phase for a ring and band routine. The Joining is also good.

I have never used Ring Leader by itself, only in the context of a routine.

I started praticing it a while ago but gave up because I couldn't understand it enough. Then I went back not too long ago and found my error. If you read it very carefully and look at the pictures right, you can get it with practice. Remember that Simon is lefty, so if you are a righty then you have to do the opposite of the picture. I've never used it in the real world but If I get good at it then I may. But right now I have a ring and string routine, so two penetration effects in the same set wont work that well.

Aronson states in the beginning of the effect that its hard to follow. He even showed it at an convention, and tried to explained it, but somewhere everybody got lost.
Thanks to John Bannon, Ring Leader went into the book.

I really appreciated that Simon mentioned in his book that it was difficult to follow. I haven't gotten it down yet, but it makes it easier to mess up when you know it isn't just you.

What is still unclear for every body? I must say it was a little bit hard to follow, but after you have seen the video on his site it becomes much more clear.

I think it is very powerful and the set up is rather natural. Sometimes I follow up with 'the joining' for an extra convincer. I use this quite often now, wear a ring and slap a few bands on your wrist next time you go out.

I started to think about this some more, and am wondering if I think it is unclear because I was told it was going to be unclear by Simon at the beginning.

Either way, I like the effect, and once you get it down it is a very nice traveling effect.

Ring Leader combined with ,Pinnacle and the joining can become a beautiful routine. I use bits and pieces from these three wonderful effects. however each effect can stand alone .

p.s. If any one needs help pm me and I will send a demo of Ring Leader to help.
Come check out my magic.
