I have a good play around with my nut last night (yeah yeah, make up your own jokes) and realised quite quickly that, as Gary Jones said, a C.P isn't at all necessary. A F.P is more than sufficient as there is absolutely no heat on the hand at that point

Hi guys, are you talking about the FP for the production part of the routine or for the ending part where it is produced under the card box?

Both Daren the start and the ending, I've also PMd you about my easier opening sequence which creates the same effect!

In his Classic Green Collection Volume #5. But it seems like a different routine but same props.

I love this effect, I have been producing the nut using Axel Hecklau's just a cup using the line that I do nut know how the trick works (sorry for the pun) but it gets a laugh allowing me to easily then load the rope in the cup.
Sounds like a few people are coming up with ways to adapt this routine. I agree about the FP too big and heavy for me, FP works great though.

At 1:26 in that, Green says, "Inspired of Giovanni Livera" for one move. Nice to see crediting during a performance!

I never noticed that, that's really kind of him, I did wonder who may have got the idea from who..

What dealers in the USA carry this?

Penguin I know does.
It is a great routine and Giovani Livera teaches it beautifully.

Question? The move where Lennart changes the ends of the rope thru the nut, does that really fool anyone in the real world.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Yes, I have performed the move about five or six times and my audience seemed genuinely surprised. No one looked down at the box.

I have to say very well done to Giovani for coming up with this very commercial routine that's gone straight into my working set.

It's not self working but by simply following whats taught on the DVD you have a miracle that's quite easy to do if you leave out the appearing knot at the start!

What I really love about this is that it does not have loads of phases and moves to recall, I've never been good with any tricks that need you to do more than 2 or three things duirng the routine.

As I love this so much it's no surprise we keep this in stock http://www.saturnmagic.co.uk/new-magic/r......ate.html

Can someone tell me what the advantage of buying this DVD, rather than Greg Wilson's Ring Leader (plus large nut from a hardware store and some rope), is?

I don't mean to be in any way disrespectful to Giovani Livera, who by all accounts is a very good teacher, but I have heard that this routine is (at least for the most part) not original, and that Greg Wilson's DVD shows you more moves than this DVD does.

Greg Wilson's DVD has *much* better moves -- but Giovanni's has better *structure*.
Recommendation: import the Ringleader moves into the Ring, Nut Knot routine.

Really want to get rope replacement overseas... tried buy one as told on Ebay which the texture and quality is total different from the one provided in the DVD.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

I might have missed this in a previous post, has anyone thought of an ending whilst performing this without a table? I mean this as in the final reveal of the nut.

I've been thinking of nut on shoulder but I've not tried it out live yet.
