I've noticed here lately that hat coils are getting harder to find.

Does anyone know of any good sources?

Here is a little article on Steven’s Magic web site written by Billy McComb on making and using an “impromptu” hat coil:

Back in the day I got mine from Barry’s Magic Shop (I’d buy 20 to 30 at a time). I forgot how much fun they were, how easy to use/produce, and what a great reaction it got from an audience.

For the uninitiated, guys, what's the effect? Thanks, Jim

Google "telex paper rolls". Basically the same stuff.

FWIW

Mandarin the basic effect: From an empty container (normally a borrowed hat) yards and yards and yards of paper streamer spills out. It piles up on the floor in an impossibly huge heap. A final production can be made from this heap of paper streamer.
