I love the idea this effect. And it`s very strong and direct, no force. The only thing that I do not like is the refills. I have one of this BNIP but I never open it. Just nice to know how it works.

As Vicor says, I love the idea this effect.

Prof:
-It's reviewable and it's really great.

Cons:
-the trick must be refill.
-the movement to perform the gimmick could seem suspicious, and it is difficult to train since the number of paper rings is limited

Nevertheless, I lobe this trick even if it is not at the top of the podium

I never bought this one on account of it being single-use. It’s seems like a cool trick and well loved. Without giving too much away, is there any scope for a reusable version to be made in wood that employs the same principal? I like a challenge!

(If anyone fancies sending me the instructions in the interests of developing a new version it would be much appreciated, though I do appreciate it contravenes the forum’s policy on instruction requests.

Not a bad effect (I like it!) but because it requires refills which are no longer made and the method is somewhat obvious to some, I gave it a 6.

Sugawara came out with an alternate version called Mystery Donut which uses two rings. Here is a link to the demo.
