Just saw a photo of an illusion I think is called bow staff.

What do you do with the illusion ? Any videos on the net, and who makes it?

And who is working it ?

Many thanks for your help.

Hey Jamie,

The topic has been discussed before. The BO Staff (not BOW staff) illusion is being built by Roy Shank. It's been performed by many magicians, such as James Dimmare, Robert Gallup, Joanie Spina, Topas, Hans Klok, Rafael and more.


I hope this helps.

Regards,

I would call Napoleon Dynamite, I heard he has some serious bow staff skills. Actually, the best I have seen is Robert Gallup's performance. He starts with a martial arts display and it fits right into the illusion. He did it about 5 years ago on TV. That is the only video I know of. I think his show was called Extreme Magic. Good luck.

"Bo Staff illusion" is only for sale thru Roy Shank or Bill Smith.

Hector you're right, Bill did a fantastic job.

By the way...dude you're fun to watch. I'd gladly see your show if you come up to Canada - you look like you're having a blast!

Murray performed this illusion a couple years back on America's Got Talent.

It's pretty edited but you can see the prop in action.

Robert Gallup was mentioned earlier. This segment from his "Extreme Magic" TV show, has his presentation of the Bo Staff Illusion (starts at about the 2:30 mark):

In fact, the Bo Staff Illusion is very good. My preference go to Mark Kalin`s Bo Staff: The colors and design make even more deceptive.


About the presentations is a matter of creativity and fit all tastes.

Hector,

Just a short word off topic to let you know that you've got a very pleasant presentation. I like it very much, it's an eye catching and fast illusion presentation. I didn't get bored a second even though I know this illusion. Very well done.

And of course Bill Smith did an excellent job on this one too.

Congratulations !

Oliver.

Hello guys!

First of all... THANK YOU! for all your kind words! I am so glad you liked my presentation! It is a great illusion.

But I got some news! Smile I bought mine second hand and there were a rare misunderstanding!... I have just discovered mine is ROY SHANK'S! I am kind of shocked, first because of the big mistake while talking with the seller as we were talking at the same time about another Bill Smith's illusion. But second about how great Roy is building illusions! WOW.

Sorry for the mistake guys.

All the best!
