Yes thanks very much for the trailor, the material may not be for everyone but all of Craig's trailors have been honest looks at performances giving you a real feeling for what you may be buying. Very refreshing.

I agree,
I hate all that Hollywood, new age, fast paced, show nothing, teenage, BS that most magic trailers consist of.
Just another reason I will continue to buy Craig Petty projects.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

I think Alan Rorrison should be the go to guy to do trailers for the industry.

I agree Alan is one of the best in the business at making trailers. I think it's because he's such a great magician and knows what people want to see. I feel it's important when you see a trailer you get an idea of exactly what your getting. There are so many trailers around today and after watching them I have no idea what the product is. There is so much in the Pool Ball Miracles set that it is hard to put over everything that's included but as I said Alan did a great job.

Also thanks to everyone that has contacted me about the set. The feedback has been great. One question that comes up a lot is if there is any non card material. To be honest there is probably a 50/50 split between card and non card. Pool balls tend to lend themselves to playing cards (due to the black 8 and the red 3) so I felt it was impotant that there a lot of non card material as well.

If anyone has any other questions just let me know

I've just brought this set....
it's a great set for a magic with pool ball...some of the gimmick you have to made yourself, but some gimmick include of the set.
I like the pool ball through table with bonus handling from Craig Petty, that's so visual and clever method.Thank you.....

lol. Craig, that's so true. I'm all for an artistic spin, but they really need to let folks know what the effect is.

Congratulations on doing it right and the success of Pool Ball Miracles!

I recently bought this and I need to know, the packet trick wallet would this one be alright? http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S7953 also how many blank faced cards will I need? I have a few lying around somewhere but I'd like to know what I would need and also what kind of colored spot stickers are you talking about? like the one's from some of the Jay Sankey DVD's or something else? Hope to hear from somebody soon.

Sincerely,

Matthew

I did but I think it's going to take a while before he answer because he's probably really busy right now.

Hey Matthew, sorry about the late reply I have been filming the new episode of the Wizard Product Review Show all day!!

Anyway thanks for your interest in pool ball miracles. I think you'll have a lot of fun with this one!

Everything is explained on the DVD but the spots you need are available from Staples worldwide. There is only one blank faced card needed for the routine with the packet trick wallet. As for the wallet anything will work (including the one in your link). Pretty much anything you need to perform the effects on the DVD are included in the set. There are some routines in the ebook that require a couple of bits and pieces but this is probably stuff you'll have lying around already.

I hope this helps, when you get the set come back on here and let me know what you think!

Craig

p.s have you seen the Wizard Product Review Show yet?

Thanks for the reply Craig and yes I've seen it a couple times now I think, my favorite is that Annihilation Deck you talked about that was pretty fun and I can't wait to get it. I also thought that David was a little harsh with that TKO because it is absolutely amazing and has got me some great reactions with it. But then again he did come out with his own topit so that's understandable because he must've spent a lot of time with that one. But I do like how that TKO has the option of easy retrieval.

I just started watching the DVD now and Craig said that there's a ball holder you use to hold your balls but I've went through everything I've bought and I can't find it anywhere, so what should I do about that? I want to get the most out of it and if it is supposed to come with one I'd like to know where I can find it?

Don't worry about it, I just made it through the entire DVD and I'm supposed to make it myself.

Hey Matthew,

Glad you found the info you needed!!!

That ball holder is brilliant and works so well.

Let me know what you think once you have watched the DVD / tried out the material

Take care

There is some excellent material on this DVD and in the ebook which is part of the package. The balls supplied are about 1 7/8" in diameter. These are not as easily available in the US as they are in England; however, if you visit "the big auction site that cannot be linked to," you can find sets of them for a reasonable price, especially if you order them from Australia.

You can also order a set of 2 inch balls. I have ordered several sets of billiard and snooker balls from Australia, and they generally reach the US in a matter of a couple of weeks.

Bill, why Australia? You can order Billiard or Snooker balls here in the U.S.

This is an old thread, but my problem with the set was just recently discovered. I purchased this about six years ago, opened it and put it on the shelf. I recently "found" it and discovered I had three pool balls instead of four and two were duplicates (the #7). So I had no cue ball and no striped ball. This was my fault for not checking it out carefully when I bought it. I sent a PM to Craig asking where I might be able to buy the smaller balls but didn't get a reply. My set also didn't have whatever was enclosed to access the ebook. I watched the DVD and it looks good to me, especially since I have a pool table. The English and Australian balls are smaller than the US balls, but I can just sub the larger balls from my table in and make it work, it's just more difficult to palm a 2.25" ball than a 1 7/8" ball. However, I'd like to find a way to access the ebook if possible. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Craig today in his youtube blog (Nothing But The Truth E04 Creators) confessed that this rushed product was 'terrible' and 'awful'.
