I might also suggest the following: Willi Wessel's Close-Up Ring and Rope Routine (it comes as video, props, and written instructions released through El Duco). It is, in my opinion, one of the best ring and rope routines out.
Also, you may want to look at Bracelet and Rope Routine on Vol. 3 of Daryls new Fooler Dooler DVDs released through L&L. It is a tight, strong routine based on ideas of Chanin, Anverdi, Johnson, Flip, and Daryl. "The Puzzle" routine by Frank Balzerak on his "Magic For Humans" video released through Murphys is excellent. Frank's routine is based on David Williamson's and the steal of the extra piece of rope (with false knot) is BRILLIANT and will definitely fly by you.
I have not used a ring and rope routine for "real" people. My question would be what kind of reaction does it get. It "seems" like it may be just "that's cool" but not a devastating "miracle". I could be totally off on this though. I'd love to get some thoughts on this from those who have USED ring and rope routines for real people.
