Ten easy routines with rings and ropes. All the effects are performed with regular props (3 to 5 inch diameter rings, ropes and silks). They are suitable for close-up, walk-around, stage, etc. You may tie several effects together to create a unique routine.
RING AND ROPE MOVE (George Hills): A rope and a ring. The ends and the middle are always in view but the ring penetrates the rope!
HINDU RING MYSTERY (Eddie Joseph): The perfect follow-up for the previous trick. The ring penetrates the rope and becomes free!
THE CHEEKY ROPE AND RING TRICK (Aldo Colombini): A ring is threaded on the rope. You cover it with a handkerchief keeping the ends always in view. The ring becomes free!
DOUBLE-RING THROUGH (Francis Tabary): Two smashing effects from the king of rope himself! A ring penetrates the rope and then it does it again just like magic!
RELEASO (Jack Miller): The ring is on the rope and the ends are knotted. Nevertheless the ring escapes!
ESCAPE! (Jim Laconte): A disarming ring penetration where the ring is knotted on the rope and held BETWEEN the spectator's hands and it becomes free. A beautiful visual effect!
RING ON ROPE, OR VICE VERSA (Aldo Colombini): The quickest ring on rope ever! Just don't blink or you'll miss it!
AUTORING (Eddie Joseph): A silk is knotted around two rings. A spectator chooses a ring and this ring becomes free (or not?)! Stunning method!
RING "PROOF" (Carl Albright): A ring penetrates the rope and it becomes free. You'll love this simple and effective way to perform it!
RING FLITE (Sam Schwartz): A knot is tied around the ring, but you will release the ring. As clean as a whistle!

In 2015 at the FFFF magic convention Gyula's Ring Show was awarded with a Master of Magic Diploma.
After three years of developing and improving the routines, he created a very decent lecture DVD, which contains only ring manipulation. The ring is completely ordinary, the tricks are only made by using hand skill. The difficult handles were made simpler to make them easier to learn.
24 routines and many useful tips and advices are explained in details on the DVD.
