I'm looking for some inexpensive, good quality (may be a contradiction of terms) 6" silks for a production routine using a small box (A 4 inch cube. I need 9-12 silks for the routine.

Also, what is the best way to keep the silks compressed to load them that also has a quick release to produce the them? Thanks

Barry's magic shop in Md has a good selection of inexpensive decent quality silks. Check out his web sight, give him a call and I'm sure he'll be happy to give you advice on loading the silks as well.

Leftytheclown,

A little item that we frequently overlook in using 12" square silks is that a streamer 4" x 36" takes the same space but looks much larger than a 12" square silk. They cost a little more than a square silk but you can get them to match the square silks too! (In this size you hit the point at which the hem costs more than the silk.) In tall cylinders, you'll find that streamers are easier than squares to control as you produce them. It gives you more time for applause!

Give it a shot!
