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.

Joshua Messado is the most incredible performer we've ever seen. He has a unique style that gets attention and has spectators in awe. From the Centrifugal Link to the Spinning Jumper - Messado makes the rings cool again. Get training from him personally by picking up the Messado Rings DVD here.
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.
Very high quality. They are very small, but that makes them perfect for use and comfortable for the flourishing. Everything looks slick as grease in black, and these are no exception. When you pull them out, it doesn't look like something you took out of a magic kit like most rings. They are very professional. Something I have heard some complaints about is the paint scratches very easy. And it does. Just some basic practice will add new scuffs. However I feel that this adds to the character of the rings instead of taking away. They don't, in my opinion, look worse.
One issue: Weld marks. On every ring except the Key Ring. That kind of sucks. But not a huge issue and even if you don't have Messado's teaching on linking rings (which you should get) these are great. Defnitely recommend.
What a gift to magic from Joshua Messado! I have performed with the gold Ninja Rings for many years and I must say the Messado Rings add a new dimension of deception and elegance. I am currently performing a routine that uses BOTH the Messado and Ninja Rings to illustrate Yin Yang and the quest for Life Balance. I also use a single Messado Ring for a ring on rope routine as well as a finger ring on ring routine. A borrowed ring looks amazing against the black Messado ring! Thanks Ellusionist for bringing Joshua's vision to the magic community.
The Messado Black Rings ROCK! They are made very well. They have a class about them. They are taking my close-up routine to the next level.
