I believe there is a misrepresentation of a product on eBay. No problem with the product, just the description.

Search for a Gazzo pouch.
I could be wrong??

Tough to say.

Although at first glance it doesn't look exactly like the ones Gazzo let us use in the Master class, it does share more than a few similarities.

What seems curious to me is that he says it is a month old, but the baseballs and rope in it looks well used... I wonder if the cups and baseballs shown come with it?

I guess the question that could/should be asked of the seller, is when and how he puchased it, and how he knows that it is a Gazzo pouch. I think I will just go and ask him that now. Smile

I was contacted by someone else...
I have already contacted the seller.

Just awaiting a reply.

Just received a reply from the seller. This is not a pouch made by Gazzo.

I'm curious to see now if he bothers to change his ad description.

The description has been changed. Really it should be the title that should be changed. Yeah, I put a bid on it.
Steve at http://www.magicpitch.com has some new items for sale. He also has a few price reductions.

Frank makes good stuff. Too bad this guy tried to pass it off as something else. It's a small victory, but if we get enough of them maybe it'll make a difference.

I was checking out this, and they now have the Gazzo pouch. Just wanted to give you a heads up if you really wanted one made by Gazzo.
Have a great day.

Penguin will be the official supplier of Gazzo's products now.

Well I'll be D^&*$d if I buy another Gazzo product as long as they are the official supplier. The bird can't advertize in The Linking Ring because of their ethics, I can't believe that Gazzo would choose them.

Word from IBM was that there was no "ban" on Penguin advertising. Penguin chose not to advertise there, it was as simple as that. I won't try to guess why they made this decision.

I don't see this as Gazzo lowering his standards, I see it as Penguin raising theirs. I hope it works out well for both parties.

On speaking with Gazzo, after he had said that he had sold everything to the "bird", I pretty much took it as he was just closing a chapter in his life. As if he were putting the past behind him, and moving on to bigger and better things. I don't know. That's just my take on it.

I personally applaud him for continuing forward, in search of a different performance venue.

The question then is, whose hands are making the stuff from now on, and who is acting as quality control? A 'Gazzo Design' is not the same as a 'Gazzo Product'. Especially if made by a ten-year-old kid in Morrocco (for example).

That's just what I've been wondering.

Word is that the cups will still be supplied by Gary Animal. Penguin implies on their pouch ad that they're made by Gazzo and marketed through them. Books and booklets are easy. The rest, I don't know.

Penguin is a dealer like any other. I don't see much difference between them selling Gazzo products and MagicPitch selling them.

After all of this....The auction has ended early. I wish Gazzo the Best in everything that he does. I spent 2 days with him at his masterclass. I enjoyed it and learned a lot. Thanks Steve from magicpitch for getting that going. I lucked out and bought one of Gazzo's hand stitched pouches. Big difference between Gary Animals pouch and Gazzos. ( I have both.) I will most likely buy items from penguin now because of GAzzo. Good day.
