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.

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.

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
Very practice. Very good quality. I recommend.

Finally I got enough money to buy them, and I don't regret it 😃 they look awesome and sound really great!! Also Messado's teaching is pretty cool, he gives nice tips and subtlets that make your performances cleaner!!
A very well unique set of rings which comes in a slick modern case, the routine it's amazing and easy to learn. I have no previous experience with rings and already learned all the steps of the routine. Mesado thank you!
I've performed Linking Rings since the 1970s. This is the best version because it's so interactive - can be done close-up, and it's so attractive to watch because of the handling. The instructional video also is first rate - Messado is a natural teacher. With a little practice a beginner can learn to do it. A great package - my highest recommendation.
I've ordered half a dozen magic props in the last few months and so have not been disappointed in one item. Thanx, -keith norris
Watching Mr. Messado on Instagram I knew that I was wrong for writing off the Chinese linking rings as too old school. Joshua does an amazing job at taking an archaic trick, spicing it up with an appealing presentation, and throws in a bunch of things I never assumed you could do with these things. The rings themselves are beautiful, simple, and make an extremely satisfying ring when clinked together. I had a lot of fun learning this routine (was not NEARLY as hard as I assumed) and can’t wait to deploy it in public!
