Hey guys, I'd like to know what you feel is the best published Himber Ring routine with 3 rings. (With or without a stooge). I have Roger Klaus's on one of his DVD's. I also have Richard Osterlinds on his "Challenge Magic" DVD. Which do you feel is the cleanest one and why? (don't forget the WHY). I've also seen Steve Wyrick do his version on stage in vegas, but he uses a stooge. I'm specifically looking for stage/platform versions. I hope that makes sense. Thanks!

The best version is the original Koran Version, all the others are not as clean in the handling, except maybe the Proper model currently just produced. His new ring is the true answer to make the Koran Linking Finger Ring a real miracle.

Why, because in all the verions I have seen the person at one point holds all the rings in his hands and fiddles with them. That is the point were it kills the effect for me.

With the new AmaZeRing all that fumbling is gone, and it is now possible to very open and fair with the nandling.

Wm... you spelled "Porper" wrong. The best version, if you go to my old web site, http://www.petebiro.com you can see Lu Chen do my Ghostly Linking Finger ring. The AmaZeRING is different, but yes, it is the simplest, easiest way. Note: Joe Porper's web site is http://www.porperoriginals.com

I saw the Porper version performed recently and it was amazing. I had a pretty good idea of the working of the effect, and it still floored me.

False/et al that's an old clip of me that Mark Miller posted. No stooge, I'm still doing - although much improved - a version of that handling today in my show at Magicopolis. http://www.magicopolis.com

It's Steve's own routine, and like everything else he does, it's brilliant.

In the 80's, I worked with Steve at the Brook Farm Inn of Magic, and he fooled me with the routine even after I had watched him perform it a couple dozen times! I had already been performing for 20 years at that time, and Steve's routine made me feel like a kid again.

When Steve finally shared his work with me, I could only marvel at his brilliant solution, and by the way, his ending isn't shown in the YouTube clip -- it would fry you if you saw it!

After doing some google research I've heard great things about Bruce Cervons routine and Nick Lewin's. Apparently Nick Lewin's uses 5 rings. David Regal said some amazing things about Cervon's routine.

Does anyone know where I can see either of these performed? Is the Cervon routine published?

I think the highlight of Cervon's routine was the Koran pencil ending, and if I'm not mistaken Lewin recently marketed his routine.

Does anyone know if Lewin's routine is marketed, for sure? I've heard both ways on this.

I described and gave the finish to Cervon. His "handling" was excellent in audience management. Lu Chen does my version and kills with it.

Michael Mosher’s Wack-O Innovative Magic, will be publishing my presentation “Bands of Trust” for the Linking Finger Rings, very soon. My goal was for your audiences to leave with warm memories of you and your show.

I wanted to perform a version that was simple, direct, and elegant. No lame old jokes, no wisecracks that make your audience dislike you for making fun of their grandmother's ring! It's a thoughtful theatrical-presentation that makes your audience feel welcomed and a part of the magic.

Handling is super-duper simple and clean. It doesn't come with a ring... you can use any ring, but I HIGHLY recommend Joe Porper's AmaZeRING for my version.

I like and use Tom Stone's approach to the Linking Finger Rings (it is on his DVD 'Tom Stone Caught On Tape', under the title 'Gold Wielder').

Geoffrey Durham's 'Professional Secrets' contains another fumble-free approach.

Another tip: Nicholas Einhorn also has two creative approaches to the Linking Finger Rings in print in his Lecture Notes. World Tour, set 3.

Discussing why these approaches stand out is a bit problematic in an open forum.

Sorry to say this is not really a close-up presentation, do to the arrangement. Although, if you were strolling and hand a large crowd of say 30 or more people, where you can move to different parts of the crowd, to borrow the rings and have them verify, then it would be fine.

Of couse there are other tricks that can be performed with the Himber Ring. There are books on the subject.

I agree with Wmhegbli statement--

On most large magic sites "review this trick" many magicians (mostly new to magic) complain that this is a horrid trick with un unexaminable, obvious props. That's because they are close up performers and don't realize this is a parlor/stage piece.

Of course Jonathan Pendagon does a credible close-up routine, that is the exception maybe, but I think even that has holes.

It was never intended for under-your-nose performances, that's like using a screwdriver to get a nail into the wall. For a group of people however, it is a versatile, interesting, and very magical piece, that gets most of the audience involved.
