Hello everyone.




The ring routine starts at 10:32


Video to the performance of the best linking ring routine I have ever seen!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pNy3eRzEflQ

The move I want to learn is the move levent does after he links 2 rings in midair.

I want to learn the move where he links four rings togheter then unlinks one of them and hands a chain of 3 and a single ring out.

The move starts att 11:05.

Roy benson also has a move to accomplish this but I like the way levent displays the rings I feel that the way levent does it is more deceptive.


So if anyone knows any sources for this move please let me know.

Thanck you

Your best source for this is the Levent's Linking Rings DVDs he released, or the book Rings in your Fingers by Dariel Fitzkee.
You can also find many of the moves in the Tarbell books but I don't recall the volume number.
Most of what you are looking for is very standard moves.

That move, as you call it, is just a normal un-linking, what fools is the way he presents it. There is builtin misdirection in his whole routine. Have you tried enlarging, and slowing down the video. Watch it 10 or more times, study it hard. Maybe just edit out that section and only watch that portion. Still his hands cover the secret.

Don't understand why you would not go to the source, and take the advice from 61magic. That Levent DVD contains every famous magicians Linking Ring routine presented as the original performer. It also include Levent's original 11 ring routine.

Are you saying, it is not worth $80 to you to learn the one move you are seeking. That is fine, but I don't know of anyone that invests in finding out what they need to know, then telling everyone else. Did you know it is against the rules of The Café to expose magic secrets and workings, so no one can actually tell you anyway, without them risking their membership. Although, they can expose their own creations in the Secret sections of the Café, if they desire.

Not many magicians actually perform the Linking Rings, so then there is that as well.

Seven out of 5000 or more is "Not Many" in my book.

Probably, because Moms and wives kick the magician of her house out, because he is making so much noise.

Http://bob.machighway.com/~leventma/Leve......DVD.html More than you need to know. By the way, my mom loved to hear me practicing with my linking rings in the upstairs bedroom when I was a kid, because she always knew where I was and what I was "up to."

For those not excited about Linking Rings, please check out "Linking Hearts"
Several moves not possible with standard rings, plus the combination with ring/rope effects.
Not special gimmicks - it is the shape that makes the difference. This also provides a reason for doing a rings effect.
Even with crippled hands I can handle the moves.

Discovery of this approach revitalized my interest in Rings, and I have now developed a novel way of introducing the Rings and their "abilities."
It is being beta-tested by several folks.

I have also had success with starting with the four rings linked and dangling from my thumb. Then the unlink of each to show four separate rings -
then into the normal routine. Parlor size, though.

Bill, with all due respect, 7/5000 magicians who perform the Rings is a ridiculous suggestion. I have personally performed the Rings for more than 40 years. In my time, and still now, I have watched many magicians perform the Linking Rings.
Tecumilic, there are many many DVDs out there where you can learn a wide assortment of Linking Ring 'moves'. I would echo the comments of others. That is, contact Levent and purchase his multi-disc set on The Linking Rings. It is certainly one of the better resources available for the Rings.

Bill has come across as a bit prickly lately, but I’m coming down on his side, here. A whole lot of magic sales are to amateurs and wannabes. I do fall into that group, so I’m not really disparaging anyone. A whole lot of the email offers we see touting the most wonderful, game changing, mind blowing amazements of the day emphasize how easy they are.

I have done linking rings in a birthday show. They are great. They are also a lot more work to do than self workers and box magic. Looking at the local performers in my town and their shows, most of what they do is self working. I haven’t seen anyone locally do the rings but me. Same for cups and balls.

It may be my perception, but I believe Bill is right that linking rings are not a part of that many acts. Which is probably just as well. Learn to do them entertainingly and have a local exclusive.

When I finish school (back for more in middle age!), I intend to dust off my classics and the rings will absolutely be part of that. For now, I’m keeping sane with a few small things, but I don’t see toting my rings to classes just for filling time between lectures. Should be done in another year, though.

On the other hand, at the T.A.O.M. (Texas Association Of Magicians) convention this past weekend, at least three different lectures featured Linking Ring routines.

Interesting! And how many of the attendees already had ring routines in their repertoire? If most did not, then the lecturers had all three spotted a niche worth filling and worth putting in their lectures. Or perhaps rings are used by enough Texas magicians to make them as ubiquitous as the ACR. In Texas, anyway.

Perhaps it is more of a regional thing, then. I don’t know.

Hello Tecumilic,

As noted by others, the best advice is to acquire Levent's superb four DVD set where everything is explained in great detail.

This phase of the routine serves as an ideal prelude to what follows. Each of the eight rings that are linked and unlinked are handed directly to members of the audience for examination. It should be noted that a k** is not used in this sequence.

The similarities between Roy Benson's and Levent's routines are not a coincidence. Levent actually used Benson's routine as a foundation for is own eleven ring routine.

Also, this phase of Levent's eleven ring routine does not rely entirely on standard moves. The linking and unlinking of the first two rings requires a special preparation. While the linking of the chain of three relies on a standard method, the linking of the additional ring to form a chain of four, as well as the unlinking of that ring, requires a special prop. This prop also plays a roll in the first and second linkings of two rings. The methods, of course, cannot be openly discussed here.

Cheers,
Kit

As for the lectures at the T.A.O.M convention, I have no idea how many convention attendees perform ring routines, but I took a poll at a club meeting this evening, and seven out the fourteen meeting attendees do perform Linking Ring routines. Who knows, maybe it IS a Texas thing.

I’d say that’s about right. Linking Rings are one of the standards of Magic and quite a lot of routines exist.

Thanks for checking on that, Murf. Maybe Alaska is the odd one out and my perception is whacked because of the local scene.

Interesting to think about, anyway.
