Ya I bought it yesterday and awaiting its arrival. I realize the moves are probably nothing new, but learning from one of the great corporate magicians is what I'm looking forward to the most.

I picked this up at magic live and just had a chance to view the DVD last night. If you are familiar with ring and string moves you will have no trouble with the routine. You only use two moves during the routine. For me learning how to tie the knot was worth the price as it can be used in your regular ring and string routine.

Awesome! I do Ring Leader already, but this will be nice for more formal close up shows.

After view this promo it was evident that this was all old ring and rope magic. Nothing new or earth shattering. What is more important is the misdirection of having the nut appear under objects right out in front of the spectators. Much like the card under glass card trick.

This is the reason to purchase this DVD, to gain confidence in making the nut appear different place right in front of people.

Yes. I substituted it with a one handed knot tie done quickly between introducing the rope and the nut, using the nut as misdirection. Not quite as astonishing, but still surprises the spectator and it works 100% of the time.

Even Giovanni messed it up during one of his performances on the video, and if you miss, then even a successful repeat turns it into a stunt in my opinion.

That being said, I really love this application of the old ring and string. I'm having the nut chromed!!! Smile

This is a great routine I will use. 5 stars. Don't hesitate to pick this up if you can.

Bada Bing!
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

I think that is the bonus of the DVD... LOL

I just watched this and wow! This is real pro's routine! Only 3 phases with the actual rope and nut, but the little details have been worked out perfectly! I am so glad I picked this up!

Tried the one handed knot about 100 times and got it once. Not sure what I did right, but Gio was right. I'll keep at it.

Yes, the hex nut and rope are included but you can buy both at your local hardware store. The value here is Giovanni teaching you the techniques and subtleties.
