What I can tell is STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE!!! The method is not new in anyway whatsoever. Same method as with the original linking rings, ninja rings, messado rings. ALL the same. Thay are just linked a little differently. This is pure eye candy but only from directly exactly straight on only! Nobody even a little bit to the left or the right and your caught out. The gaff are garbage and you can see the seams on the gaffed and non gaffed rings. The rings sound tinny when the clang together. There can be absolutely no spectator participation whatsoever other than watching. Save your money on this one folks. The demo is pure hype and even though the video is an unedited continuous shot it is still deceptive because the camera is held at exactly the right height and angle as to not expose the dirty part. Any movement in any direction and your caught. The dvd is pure garbage as well. Shin Lim teaches you with a constant looping music in the background that gets really annoying really fast. Not to mention that the entire instructional dvd is less that 20 friggin minutes! Shin keeps clanging the rings on a glass table every five seconds while he is talking making it very hard to understand him at times. That coupled with the bad background music makes watching this unbearable. This thing stinks from top to bottom. Stay away from this. Save your money and put it towards Messados rings and dvd as well as Shoot Ogawas rings or even Mattew Garret's Ninja Plus. All are much better than this by leaps and bound. They cost more money because you get what you pay for. This is cheap and for good reason it is total and utter garbage. I have been duped. Don't you get duped as well. You have been warned!

Hello,

I feel it necessary for me to chime in here. Being a magic dealer we are constantly bombarded with new products all the time. When we were first shown this item via a Skype demonstration I will admit they looked incredible...Unfortunately what we received was a completely different item all together. It was like a bait and switch scam. The rings supplied are no better quality than a cheap set of linking rings that you would receive in a child's magic kit and would fool no one! Nothing and I repeat nothing like what we were originally shown. I feel as duped as many of you about this product. We have removed this item from our website and have offered any of our customers who have purchased this a refund or store credit to select another item if desired..

So in short..DO NOT BUY THIS! Just my two cents...

Hope this was helpful

Best regards
Paul Gross

We need more dealers like Paul who put standards above profits and remove items in cases like this. HP is my go-to shop.

I have been dealing with Hocus-Pocus for many years not and have found that Paul Gross is as fair and honest as can be expected in this business. To read what he had to say is certainly a credit to him and his dealership.

Agreed!
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

Thanks for the kind words my friends. I'm about to review Red by Craig Petty in a day or so with some positives and negatives. I may post this review in the secret sessions area as it may reveal a little too much. We shall see.

I'm agree it is POS and very impractical.
only suitable for one spectator and it should stand in specific spot.
Only it is good for youtube magic's kind.

Well the Café does need to take advertising to pay the lighting bills.
