“Sharp-Ring” is “Ring Flight” with a Sharpie.

At first I thunked “What a great idea!”

I always carry a Sharpie marker around with me, so I thought that perhaps this was an effect I could add to my “impromptu” repertoire.

With your purchase you receive a regular Sharpie marker, the gimmick needed to accomplish this effect and a skimpy set of instructions. For $49.95 it sure would have been nice to get a DVD. I guess I am getting spoiled.

What you also get is a less effective piece of magic than “Ring Flight”.

Here is the basic effect:

“You borrow a finger ring from the spectator. You take out your sharpie and write them an IOU on a piece of paper which is then crumpled up into a ball and placed on the table in front of you. In a flash, the ring vanishes from your hand. All eyes then focus on the crumpled up ball of paper on the table. Slowly...carefully.... the paper ball is opened up. The ring isn't there! Then you turn towards the audience and the ring has appeared on the cap of the Sharpie marker that is in your back pocket!”

So an object vanishes and ends up in an impossible location.

Well…sort of. The object does vanish. But the gimmick is a little too noisy for my liking. And it does NOT end up in an impossible location. It ends up in a probable location, clipped onto the cap of the Sharpie you were just using.

The very magical effect of “Ring Flight” has been diminished.

One more thing... When I received "Sharp-Ring" I took the gimmick out and gave it a pull. The force of the cap flying back to the gimmick cracked the top of the gimmick. Not a good sign.

Save your money.

Manufacturer's Description:

"I now use it everytime I work and it is a great routine. If you ever work with me ask me for a demo, I will always have it on me. Great thinking."
-Martin Sanderson

Imagine this! You borrow a finger ring from the spectator. You take out your sharpie and write them an IOU on a piece of paper which is then crumpled up into a ball and placed on the table in front of you.

In a flash, the ring vanishes from your hand. All eyes then focus on the crumpled up ball of paper on the table. Slowly...carefully.... the paper ball is opened up. The ring isn't there!

Then you turn towards the audience and the ring has appeared on the cap of the Sharpie marker that is in your back pocket!

Finally, this wonderful classic of magic is transformed into a completely commercial prop!

Sharp-Ring will fly right into your act!

All the professional magicians agree "The simple effects are the best!"

Sharp-Ring is simple... very simple!

Complete instructions, gimmick, matching marker and holder are included.
