The Linking Finger Rings is considered by many to be the strongest magic routine ever conceived. Being able to link and unlink finger rings has been in the repertoire of some of the most prominent magicians in the world. In the past this has been used only for stage work, however, Paul Romhany has taken the classic Linking Finger Routine to a new level with a close-up version that is designed to be performed under ANY close-up condition from the street, bars, corporate functions to restaurants. With the moves he has created you will instantly link and unlink rings which are in full view and done using only one-hand. If you've ever wanted to perform a Linking Finger Routine in a walk-about situation and be able to have instant re-set now you can!
This is the closing effect Paul finishes every walk-about performance with, whether it be in restaurants, trade-shows or just showing friends some magic - MERGE is something people will remember for a very long time where you are able to link and unlink their finger rings.
You will learn a one-handed link and unlink that keeps the rings in view throughout the entire routine.
No more fumbling to link or unlink the rings - everything is open in plain site.
The LINK happens in the spectator's hands making this the perfect walk-about routine.
The unlink is instant and very visual
Bonus ideas include using a pen and various other methods for the one-handed unlink

"This handling of the Linking Finger Rings turns it into an amazing close up routine. Something that has never been possible before in anything like this manner. It is totally deceptive and great visual magic!"
- Nick Lewin
"If you are looking for a well designed, thoroughly audience tested, virtually angle proof, STUNNER of a close-up routine ... then Paul Romhany's "MERGE" is for you. Paul completely describes every nuance of the routines handling with detailed explanations, including alternative "moves" for various situations so that you understand all the in's and outs. You won't need to spend a fortune to have a reputation making effect at your finger tips."
- Dameon - USA
"Visually this looks amazing - The best handling I've ever seen - more brilliant thinking from Paul"
- Neal Scryer
"Paul has worked out a totally stealth handling with MERGE where you can do the most practical one handed switch of the gimmick ring, so good it looks like there is no move. I am so impressed with Paul's thinking I still wonder what he eats that makes him so clever."
- Alan Wong
"It's clear some serious thought and design has gone into this piece of magic."
- Franz Harary
"Merge offers a winner on all counts. It’s a stunning effect with a simple, easy-to-follow plot that encourages involvement from spectators. Furthermore, this close-up routine isn’t something that every other magician is already performing. Get in on this one early and you can do something that spectators have likely never seen before."

"This is an excellent contribution to the many Himber Ring routines out there and to my mind is a practical solution for how to perform this powerful effect in a close-up context. It takes hardly any space in your pocket, is instantly re-set, and involves your audience on an emotional level by the use of their rings. What’s not to like?"

"Great props, excellent routine, and great instruction, both in writing and on video. This routine takes the linking finger rings to the next level!"

"I like how open it is because Paul has come up with a one-handed handling of the gimmick that leaves the rings in full view of your audience for the linking and unlinking phases, no fumbling necessary provided you give this the proper time and practice it will take to smooth it out. It is not difficult to do, which is a bonus."

"I can finally add one of my all time favorite stage routines to my walk about set. "
Harry Monk, *Reviews Vanish Magazine 5/7/2015
"It really is a worker’s dream and not a mere magic effect best suited only for YouTube. The routine is well motivated, free and open, and you may even allow your spectators check out the ring before and after."
Ning Cai, NingThing.com 7/8/2015
"It;s not often a working pro gives his closing close-up routine to the magic community. If you are willing to devote the time to learn and include "Mere" in your close-up repertoire, I recommend this to experienced close-up magicians for strolling, restaurant and bar magic."
Danny Orleans, Genii Magazine 7/27/2015
"...a classic stage effect made possible in close up."
