Tex is right on! I have never switched the ring out. In my case, the routine is centered in an act that moves on to the next bit as the ring routine is finished. Pausing for examination of my props would kill the momentum I try to maintain. Plus the rings have been handled within the context of the routine. That is all the proving that is necessary.

Historic note: John Mullholland had a set of Linking Rings, bracelet size, on his secretary... and when the opportunit arose, he would say, "Madam, may I borrow your bracelets to show these fine people a bit of magic..."

The stand up switch does't require a gimmick. only a pen in your breast pocket. its at the end of the video


This one is an improvement over the method you mentioned that is at the end of the video. Martin recommends if you don't like the breast pocket switch (I don't) that you try Per Helmark's switcher gimmick also offered on http://www.magikraft.com

This one operates very smoothly, logically much cleaner than hanging the ring on the pocket, which to me makes no sense at all. Yes, the two ideas are vaguely similar in purpose, but the switcher is so much nicer.

Also, if you so choose, this gadget should also work very well for packet switches of gaffed cards for straight ones.

The size of the Mcabee rings makes it also possible to "sleeve" the rings in and out if you are comfortable with sleeving.
