Joe Porper has several different paddles on the market: jumping toothpick, spot sticks, red-white and blue, 1,2,3,4, four ace and the money paddle.

Which is your favorite and gets the most reactions? Which---if any--would you not recommend?

I've recently become interested in these paddles and found this post in a search. Does anyone else have any comments on them?

Thanks,

Eddie

JOe's paddles are all precision made and most are examinable. It is just a matter of "what effect" you wish to have.

I have the red, white, and blue paddle. As with all of Joe Porper's items, it's very well made.

The effect is a good one. It's nicely routined, pleasing to the eye, and easy to perform/master. I've received some nice reactions from this effect. If you wish, you may allow them to examine the paddle without fear of detection.

Joe has two new prototype paddles I photographed today for a future ad. One is the "Dice Paddle" which is a holder for a pair of dice that is lots of fun to work with, using a gambling theme. The other is one with a slot in it that a coin will pass through when the magician does it but fails when the spectator tries.

Larry,

I love this presentation of yours!!! Totally logical and a "Scripted Insanity" to boot!!

(What else would you expect from a guy that throws coins up out of a glass and then tries to catch them in mid-air with the other hand--and then brags about it by posting a picture of his "achievement"--like it is some kind of World Record thing? Hint: Bring your right hand closer to the coins; the bar bet will work better and end up being more impressive.)

Seriously, your presentation makes me want to go right out and buy the paddle just to be able to use your presentation. If I do succumb and purchase the paddle, may I use your presentation? I usually don't use another person's presentation, but your "Red, White and Blue" script is soooo funny (and so logical) that........

Thanks for sharing.

Best,

Mike

Mike, I'm glad that you like it and of course you can use it.

Larry

P.S. - In reality, my avatar shows me throwing coins out of the glass at hecklers. I usually need to reload the glass a number of times throughout the act.

P.P.S. - Happy New Year!
