Wonderfull, thanks for sharing!

The move is so well hidden even if you know how it's done it is still very hard to see!

Very Cool Mr. Yang :)

If I didn't own the trick, watching the video would change my mind.
Now I have to go dig it out and find out how he did that.

Ok, with the logic you can argue what does happen. The move in itself is "almost" impossible to watch, because it's done when the ring is held parallel to your point of view... :) The "preparation" for the move is, instead, rather easy to see...

Golden Fleece doesn't work unless you do something to the prop to keep the pieces from flying apart when it spins in the air at the end. Tenyo made a video at the time of its original release.

Nice effect as long as you don't pay attention to the length of the strings :P

You can make that comment about almost any Cut and Restored Rope or string!

Wow this trick really baffled me! What a surprise to see it live. Always thought it was a lousy trick... Being a lover of rope tricks, I am planning to make this trick... from Lego! :)

It's not a lousy trick: it just won't work unless you modify it so the pieces don't fly apart at the climax.

No Richard, the picture of the Tenyo-package with the piece of wool always made a somewhat 'soft' impression to me... But now that I've seen the video I am convinced: it's a wondertful trick!

Well saverle, it looks like you don't hate Tenyo that much after all. ;)

I just bought an Old stock (new in sealed package) of golden fleece. When I used it the pieces fly apart. Could somebody with the Tenyo book PM with the fix that Richard Kaufman mentioned above?
Thank you
Pablo
