Hello:

I just noticed this neat item at the new Laflin Magic site. It's an old principle, but I like the look of this inexpensive prop. I've bought previous versions like Tenyo's Dynamite Tube as well as a super-cheap D. Robbins tube - this one looks like it will last much longer than the rest.

I've always thought this was a very deceptive piece of apparatus - plus, no body or table loads of any kind. The load is inside the tube, the tube is apparently shown empty by unrolling it, and then rolled back up. Then, silks are produced.

I thought I'd share this in case someone else here is looking for a durable version of this prop. I just ordered one, so I hope it's as good as the photo makes it look. Here's the link:

Thanks for the link, Ron! I have always liked the massal tube. Perhaps that's why I love Pavel's change tube: a combination massal and phantom tube! Is this site the one his children took over?

Hey Jimmy:

Yes, if you go to laflinmagic.com, it will direct you to this new site. So far, it's a big improvement over the old site. However, they don't seem to have as much stuff - maybe they're still adding to it.

I'll have to check out the Pavel tube. I'm heading over to his site right now. Thanks for the information - sounds terrific.

You can buy it separately but basically it's the tube used in Pavel's Blendo Full of Holes. I use the tube for other routines as well. Sometimes, I even use it for Duke's Dye Version.
