Junior, under the right circumstances, a double load pan is great. The second load has to be hidden behind something or under you table for example. After the first production, you have to get the second load.

One idea would be to produce a flat dove or a silk with a dove on it. Replace the silk and use the second load to actually produce a real dove. That's just a simple idea. Of course you could use two live doves as well.

I've found however, that in most cases, the single load is a much better presentation, especially if you are performing close up.

Good points...i think I'm going to get a double load just in case...the price difference isn't much....and recomendations on name brands? I don't know of any...seen some pics on mjmmagic.com ...

I got mine from Morrisey Magic a long time ago. It's copper rather than aluminum. Probably a good idea to go with the double load. You don't have to use it that way but if you ever want to, you'll have it.

Here's a link

No prob. You can probably find them cheaper, that's was just to give you an idea. I think I paid something like $40 so you know how old mine is.

If you have and idea like the one that Dave says maybe a double load works,but if you only like to produce one dove a single-load one its good!I have a Viking dove pan single load and works very good!

I have a triple load Copper dove pan. Anyone know anything about the triple load pan? .Havenít seen anything written about it anywhere. Itís quite heavy with all the pans nested and believe it to be an antique. Iíve had it for over 50 years.

You learn something every day. In all my years of dove magic, I've never heard of a triple load pan. Any idea where you got it?
