Ok. I bought a vanish box off Ebay and it came with loops (5 packs of 5). The instructions are very vague that came with them and don't go into any detail at all about tricks that can be done with loops. I know there are so many possibilities with loops and need some help. I Figured out one trick on my own from watching a demo on the internet. I have seen a few other demos but can actually figure out how the loops would hook up to start the effect. If you cant go into any details, could someone please PM me some effects or direct me to a video/book that would be able to help me out.

Thanks,
Jim

I strongly recommend you to get the Mesika Loops booklet.

I bought some loops but have not tried them yet. Somehow I always seem to not have the proper lighting to use them in my situation.

I recently had the chance to see Yigal Mesika lecture and my goodness the things he was doing with elastic thread and loops. Some of the stuff was just so unbelievable. Some of the stuff he lectured on is in his booklet. Probably definitely something to look into if your interested in loops. Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a reference for a technique to load (and levitate) a borrowed finger ring via a loop?

Yes, the technique is taught in the Mesika booklet. It's the one I use and recommend.

I think I'm going to get the book for Christmas. I figured out one technique on my own to float a borrowed ring but it probably doesn't look as good as how Mesika teaches it.

When you purchase his booklet, do you get loops as well or do you have to get them separately?

Just ordered mine... book and a couple of sets of loops!
Thanks to everyone who shared the info about Mesika's book.
I recently got Losanders dvd's I & II on The Art of Levitation and ordered some loops from him as well.
But these other loops sound like they may be superior and more routines with the loops is exactly what I am looking for, that was the main reason I got the Losander dvd's.

Now I can't wait to get this book and these new loops!

The mesika loops are great. And in the book I believe are very good effects. The rising card out of box in the spectators hands is a great trick.

I have heard that the book is ok, but I have been told that it isn't that great. If you want to know some awsome tricks to do with loops, you should search the Magic Café forums. There are all sorts of effects that you can find in here. PM someone who is really into loops and discuss it with them.

It doesn't use loops, but Terry Lunceford's 'Floating Finger Ring' is an excellent way of levitating a ring using a different hook-up.
