First shown at Magic Live in August, the Messado Rings completely sold out during that initial release.


"My name’s Mr Messado, I’m going to show you the magic of Messado’s rings. Are you ready? Gather round let me show you something cool…”

So starts the most phenomenal performance of the Linking Rings we’ve ever seen. At 6ft tall, with a top hat, bow tie and pocket-watch, Messado stands out on the streets of New York - but it's his sheer class with a set of rings that stops spectators in their tracks.

Despite a startling series of flourishy links, unlinks and displays in his solo performance, it's Messado's involvement of the spectators that really shines - taking the linking rings from a detached exhibition of stage magic to a totally engaging close-up experience.

Full Overview

Even David Copperfield is a fan of The Messado Rings - taking the time to congratulate Joshua Messado for the stunning moments of bewilderment created in the mind of the spectator, when the rings simply melt through each other on the tip of the spectator's finger.

Messado’s involvement of the spectator is not something that is simply tacked onto the end of a linking rings performance. This routine makes the spectator central to the magic - from sticking out a finger to unlink the rings at their very touch, to physically holding a ring and crashing it through another - linking them in their own hands - the magic happens just inches away from their nose.

This is a routine that builds, rather than flatlines, with the rings linking and unlinking under increasingly impossible conditions. Messado’s performance involves rings that jump to join others, links that happen in midair- even links that seem to defy gravity.

While Messado shares his full routines as he performs them on the DVD, teaching each move in context, he also encourages you to choose those moves that appeal to you and your own style - and being completely modular, you’re able to develop your own routine.

The Messado Rings

   
 

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.

On the DVD

When it comes to teaching, Messado holds nothing back. Even if you’ve never touched a key ring in your life, Messado will have you performing like a master in just a few hours. He teaches his full routine - from start to finish, from the most basic single link through to his wrap-up flourish display, in stunning and meticulous detail.

    The DVD is exceptional! Messado has obviously been performing this routine for a very long time, yet he spares no detail in his demonstrations.

    Love 'em. After just a few minutes with the DVD, I could do the basic moves, which was very exciting. Fortunately, I was able to put my excitement in check and give it time until I could perform smoothly. When I'm walking somewhere or passing time, I take 2 rings with me to play with to get more familiar with them. They're small enough to fit in my pocket without the case. Lastly, my wife, who is my toughest audience, has been watching me practice for weeks and is still stumped on how the magic happens. I love the black rings and Messado's style. Smoothing out the weld would have been nice but it doesn't bother me, nor does it affect the magic.

    i have had many ring sets in the past and hated all the routines. i saw this and Messado's routine changed how i viewed ring magic. i spoke with Joshua at magi-fest his insight into the routine was invaluable. defiantly worth the money.
