Hum...not really on the subject, but I looked at the first performer and... not very good. Specially his presentation at first when he presented the illusion as ''Windshear''. It is like if Copperfield would say ''here's my version of interlude'' or ''here's my new ashra levitation''. C'mon, little bit of originality here, specially when you present an illusion such as this one.

Sorry for this little thought, lets get back to the main subject now...

About $11,000 with nice cases I think.

If I had to guess, I would say that there are fewer than 100 of these built by BSMV on the planet.

If I had to do it outside, I would just make sure it wasn't backlit to heavily by the sun.

I've seen two girl magicians perform this Illusion on you- tube.
Different acts... Can't remember the names though.
Yes I got rid of mine. Very heavy and a big case and pretty hard to move around fast..... I have a lot of big and heavy props, but this one was really big in the box truck and pretty hard to strap down. You can also get pretty bruised up performing daily. I performed it 300 times in one year and then decided to move on to something new. I do love the effect and the way it's built though. Jim is my favorite inventor and Bill Smith is a great builder.

Each magician has to decide what works best with their style.
I think this Illusion would work best for someone with a house gig for a yr or so to keep from having to do the moving of the heavy prop.... It's made of heavy gauged aluminum.
Thank you,
Taylor

Aluminum .. I wish, it's made of steel. That's why it's got some weight to it. I still think it's one of the most visual illusions out there.

Chezaday, A lot of this prop is made of Aluminum. the round curve, the edging all around the table and the table base sides and bottom. I think the only thing that I can remember that was metal may have been the legs... and the blade for sure. 8" inch aluminum for most of the stuff and then the round ring frame around the fan blade may have been Quarter inch thick....Aluminum...
Take a magnet to the different pieces and you will see that this Illusion has a lot more aluminum than you would have thought.....

PS' I rebuilt mine so I had to cut many pieces off etc. So I konw that many parts were made of Aluminum... Unless you got like a proto type before they used aluminum.... Even the Graded metal in the back of the box is Aluminum.

You're right Taylor, I know the legs were steel .. and they're heavy. Of course I didn't deconstruct the prop .. but, I guess overall it's more aluminum than steel.

You got me ..
