Can anyone else do this?

  1. I'm just wondering if I'm the only person able to do these ring catches. The first one is "Ring Throw" by Oliver Smith off the wire, but I've only seen a couple people even do that, let alone the more difficult throws I do.

  2. I bet Trump could. He can get almost anything to land on those tiny fingers.

  3. Your skills are quite good, but I'm sorry to say you are not the only one doing it.

    Nevertheless, keep going, you are better than you should be.

  4. Solid! But you need to make it a magic trick somehow. I bet you can do it!
  5. In my show I talk about how all my magic is done with a combination of sleight of hand, misdirection, and luck. I demonstrate by throwing the ring into the air and caching it without looking at my hand.

    And in my ring routine I say it's a magic ring, like from LOTR. And demonstrate how the ring wants to be worn. (like the scene in the prancing pony where the ring lands on Frodo's finger)

  6. I've been working on 'Ring Throw' off and on for a couple months. Definitely tricky to do consistently. Alas, I haven't got the consistency part down yet ​

  7. I see from your profile picture you wear glasses, I'd suggest trying without them. My glasses mess with my depth perception a little bit. Lighting is also a big factor, it's virtually impossible to do in fluorescent lighting.
    Whenever I do it, I take a deep breath and imagine the ring landing on my finger.

    Other than that, practice practice practice!
