Hi everybody,

a few questions come to mind.

Is it a no sleight of hand version?

Is it a good effect for the table hopper?

If it is, I think I will purchase one.

Hi,

It is a good effect.

Can you use it for table hopping? Yes.

There is no real sleights to speak of, but
you will need to wear a Jacket.

If you buy it from Paul Hallas in the UK,
it comes with some extra Idea’s Written by myself and a method to perform it in a waistcoat

I have this one. Here's a fair review:

Effect: Good. You objective is to make the spectator perceive that a normal matchstick (which it is) placed in a small plastic tube (normal) burns automatically leaving the whole tube filled with smoke!

So far, this is the only pro. The other thing is that the props are pretty small and confortable to handle.

The cons:
1. Angle could be an issue.
2. If u are a magi for some time, you're bound to have known this principle.
3. Reset is of course not instant.

For the price, I don't think its worth it.Btw, jones has given a good tip ; u gotta be wearing a jacket.

Mentally Yours
:dance:

Agreed, Psychic. Angles can be tough, but all in all a good effect, although the price was a high...

I would recommend it, but then, as you have stated, if you've been around for a while you should be able to piece this one together.

re;

Maybe so, but if you piece it together yourself, you DIDN'T come up with the excellent presentation, and that's the important part.

Yes, I think this is a little overpriced for what you get, but price is relative. If you use anything you buy, it was worth it. Any tricks you buy and don't use were overpriced for you.

I still like this effect, but it is not in my repertoire, (yet).
