Does anyone have a review on this effect? Would you list the pros/cons of the effect?

According to the ad on http://www.thetrickery.com, a ring is vanished using a rattle box only to appear with a "clink" under a silk covered glass domed drinking glass. The improved electronics provide a ten second delay.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

The workmanship is terrible !!! The old one with wooden stand without delay much much better than this one.

I don't know about the new one but I own the old one with the wooden stand and you can adjust the delay up to 15 seconds! So I don't understand about the improvement? What improvement?

NO Improvement at all. Just getting wrost!!!

The new one cannot adjust timer,fixed 15 seconds.

The new one with metal stand, the stand cannot tighten up always falling apart!!!

Ring come out slit roughly made. Anyone can detect it far away the table!

I had the old one but the reglar sized wedding band type rings were too wide to be used with the gimmick. I didn't want to use thinner bands with stones in them in case the impact damaged them.

I never used it and was fortunate to be able to send it back because neither the glass nor the ring box were enclosed and vendor did not have another (whew)!

I still think it is a good idea, but that model was not for me.

I never really liked this because of the ring restrictions and it ended up malfunctioning after a couple of years. El Duco makes some good stuff, but I had trouble with this one.

I use a coin imstead of a ring. Never had any problems with mine. I bought it about eight years ago. It probably was better made back then.
