  • Chris Capehart – a 3-ring routine for all the same reasons Cellini’s is successful

  • Whit Haydn – his comedy 4 ring routine is the most commercial available also developed on the streets.
  • Jonathan Neal – Beautiful 2 ring routine of perfect linking, and unlinking.

What books/videos should you look for?

· The book “Rings in your Fingers”, by Dariel Fitzkee, is one of the best. It is full of moves, counts and figures. While this book is primarily a reference, it does offer some sound advice on routines.

· The “Tarbell Course in Magic” devoted space to the Linking Rings in volume 4.

· “Blackstone’s Secrets of Magic” offers a very good routine using a full eight-ring set. The basic routine uses very solid material and is relatively simple to perform.
