The Messado Rings is a routine that builds, rather than flatlines, with the rings linking and unlinking under increasingly impossible conditions
FIRST SHOWN AT MAGIC LIVE, 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.
The Full Trailer
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 video, 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.

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.

It's not often that we are totally blown away by a trick where the method is so universally known - but in Messado's hands, the linking rings stop being a 'trick' - they become something we never thought could be said about rings... They become cool.

I was first afraid that these rings would be too small since I am so used to the “normal” size linking rings, but I was completely wrong! These are perfect and the instructions are amazing! So glad I bought these!
Very high quality, absolutely pranks everyone I do it to, never gets old and an absolute classic, would recommend for even beginners 🙌
The rings are amazing
The tutorial is amazing.
I bought the black rings, and they are beautiful. I have been practicing a lot with them and have noticed the scratches and chips in the paint. That's not a problem, I just shot a message to Messado who (very humbly and promptly) messaged me back with advice on how to fix your problem. I love this product and will probably be buying more in the future.
Well done E team
This is, in my opinion, is the most beautifully crafted ring trick out there. The rings are made to perfection( aside from light chipping of paint but that's easily fixable). Mr. Messado teaches the material in a professional but very simple way. If you follow his advise, and practice, you will be looking like a wizard in no time. I truly believe Elusionist should introduce a ten star rating specifically for this product.
From the very first linking video I was already giggling like a child. I knew how to do it, and it still got me super excited with just how visual it is. I got the gold rings and I kind of have to mention right off the bat that you may be dropping these when you first practice so do it over a carpet and you'll love yourself.
I have been doing magic for years but im still a amuter at doing magic. I have always wanted the linking rings but i never liked how they felt. The messado rings feel great in your hands, the video tutorials is easy to understand and covers all i want to see, and ellusionist had a fast and good shipping. And if you need help ellusionist had a good customer service i happy with my buy.
Messado rings are a very good buy, the truth is that I was afraid not to buy the black ones, and in the end I bought the gold ones. It is surprising that no scratch can be seen on the rings after the blows, the finishes are masterful.
The very detailed explanation, very well explained and with simple and very important techniques. For all those magicians who always saw rings as stage magic, these rings are the perfect product for street magic or close-up magic.
I have not found any fault with them to date. Excellent work!
GREAT PRODUCT! Very user friendly and fun to practice!
I find its rings super their diameters their weights are perfect, its rings lend themselves to all existing ring routines I highly recommend them
