Manufactured by Ellusionist. Built to Joshua Messado’s exact specifications, we went through over a dozen prototypes until the seamless, carbon-black rings were in his words ‘just perfect’. The Messado Rings are unlike any other rings you’ve seen – they have a larger gauge, but smaller circumference than other close-up rings (e.g – Ninja).
The rings are forged from a custom alloy that bonds to the finish ensuring a rugged construction that stands up to hundreds of ring clashes a day, and are precision weighted to deliver an exact centre of gravity – crucial for moves like the Centrifugal Link.
Messado gives the rings the prestige they deserve, from his eloquent speech to his top-hat and coat – even the name ‘Mr Messado’ commands respect. So we ditched the mock-velvet bag that rings are usually carried in, and instead designed a stylish black carrying case,emblazoned with the Messado Rings logo and finished it with zippers shaped to echo the rings inside.
It’s not often that we are totally blown away by a trick where the method is so universally known – but in Messado’s hands, the linking rings stop being a ‘trick’ – they become something we never thought could be said about rings… They become cool.
Note: Instructions are NOT provided with these sets. Various educational products are available that teach the fundamentals for the Linking Rings. The key as with any other routine, is merging those fundamentals into your own unique presentation style.
