What's the 1 illusion that has given you the most mileage?
The illusion you've been able to perform the most...
The illusion that consistently gets you the best audience reaction...

Not surprised that the tried and true classics have gotten you the best mileage. Great to hear from you!

Mine is the chair suspension - only because it's the only "illusion" I had. I recently acquired a thin sawing and 3" hole sub trunk. I have a floating table I've used for 5-6 years - it gets fantastic reactions. Not sure if you consider this an illusion.

Zig zag.... chair suspension.... Iím seeing a Harbin type pattern here!

I count the floating table. Iíve seen it performed by several illusionists and it got better reactions than major illusions in the same show.

Do you use the chair suspension as much as the table?

I have a warehouse full of original illusions but as I look back over the years, the Sub Trunk has been the most often used illusion in all my shows. Works anywhere, always sells. I do have some original beats on it but it plays fast and strong.

I use the chair suspension much more often than the floating table, only because I do more kid shows than anything else. Kids 5 - 12 years old don't appreciate the floating table. As it floats they will sometimes chant "let it go, let it go". However, they seem to be in awe when they see one of their counterparts suspended. Kids can be a handful sometimes.
