I had just finished doing a stage show at an amusement park. I was outside the theatre greeting a few members of the audience. Naturally, I was asked to do a close up effect. I did a ring flight. I did my usual patter. When I pulled my pouch out of my back pocket, to my horror no ring! Yikes! Apparently the ring was completely solid (picture a linking ring). It fell off my gimmick and into a drainge sewer that was nearby. I will never know for sure what happened but I can only assume. So after an embarassing talk with the lady, and a withdrawl from the ATM of $900, all was good. I learned my lesson though.

That's the exact reason I don't do Ring Flights. I dropped a ring once too when it was flying south into a topic, the ring was too light. Luckily someone saw where it went. Now if I'm going to make a ring vanish I would use that ring on string move, the ring doesn't fly around at all.

I too don't like ring flight. What do you do if the ring is an heirloom or wedding ring? $900 won't make up for that it is irreplaceable. Not a place I want to go!!!

Never borrow valuable personal property for anything, that is my rule.


You never know what could happen.

Hi RSD,

I'm sorry that happened to you and how awful you must have felt. It must have been a moment of dread when you reached back to take the ring and yikes it was gone! The stuff of nightmares! Glad you hear you were a gentleman about the whole thing.
