All right, so far these are the routines I'm going to start working on, and the DVDs to teach them to me. I have the equipment, but still saving money for the DVDs. Comments are welcome.

Zombie - Losander's DVD
Cups and Balls - Ammar's book
Linking rings - Ninja ring DVD
Thumb tip - need ideas for "best" book/DVD for this - seems there's a lot more that can be done that I thought

Hi,
I'm not sure of the question !

Are you an absolute beginner ? Or a skilled worker looking to expand his field ?

If you have the Wilson book there is a simple cups and balls routine to get you started. If not I would practice coin moves since the balls use similar vanishes.
There are also some cheap books to start with.
Usually instructions are included with the set.

T.T. - practice loading and unloading and moving them around. Use sponge balls as well as silks, salt and cigarettes. Etc.

I don't want to pass opinion on the other two, I use full size rings

I use both Ninja and full size rings. I don't want to disparage Ninja Rings. Shoot Ogawa is a fine magician and Frank Starsini loves the Ninja Rings (you couldn't PAY me to say anything but compliments about Mr. Starsini) but I personally don't care for them. I perform with at least 10" rings. The Ninja Rings are great for close-up but I don't do rings close-up.

There is a real difference between Ninja and full size rings and I think that you should investigate it.

Yeah, I have the Wilson beginner book, and I learned most of my card tricks from it. But when I was ready to move on from that, all that was left in the book was rope and coin tricks really, neither of which interest me. Wanted something more spectacular, but still close up.

From what little I've seen, I love the Ninja rings routine. Perfect complement to all the other close up stuff I've been practicing.

Hm, I´m not sure... I think he is not asking for advice on card effects. Why are there people recommending card material to him?

25 tricks with a thumbtip is a good cheap video and has nice effects if you don't want to spend a lot of money. If you want a more expensive video, Darwin's encyclopedia of thumbtip magic are nice DVD's to get.

I second Darwin's Encyclopedia Of Thumbtip Magic. You are going to see you TT in a whole new light!

Certainly there are a lot of ideas in Darwin's Encyclopedia of Thumb Tip Magic DVD. However, I've heard nothing but praise for Patrick Page's material on TTs
