Just received this very high quality Ring Reel from James P. Riser, the custom magic manufacturer of metal products that can be used for magic.

It has a stainless steel case with custom ring clip, swivel belt clip.

I was thinking this would be a great rope pull, not for speed restoration, but for very puzzling magical rope restoration effect. Does anyone have any ideas for cut and restored effects using a reel vanisher?

I like the last one- you could vanish a small woman with that thing!

What a fun romp thru Jim's great inventory of goodies! Good think I don't have my credit card with me, I could have melted it!

Jay Scott Berry wrote a large booklet on the use of this type or reel. The book was from France, so I do not believe it is available any longer. Petrick & Mia also created a number of effects with this type of reel.

You can vanish, rings, rope, Ellis rings, finger rings and long stemmed roses.

That's an excellent suggestion. I've been struggling with the Neff Miracle Rope - the gimmick supplied with the instructions does not seem to give me enough distance, and I have been no more successful with my own hold-out. (I built the hold-out to perform the Jack Miller C&R rope as explained by Ed Mishell, and it is just fine for that, but the Miracle Rope seems to require more.) When I figure it out, I still plan to put my thoughts up in "Secret Sessions." Thanks.
