I have a beautiful jumbo hot rod... clear acrylic and about 9" long.

I recently purchased Paul Green's Lecture notes, and found out first hand that his "Pygmy Paddle" trick plays big! I get gasps of amazement peforming it, surpassing any paddle trick I've ever done. Best of all, Paul's routine involves the spectator by writing their name on the paddle. You even have a personallized plastic pygmy paddle as a give away item...

If you contact Paul, he can set you up with a very practical paddle trick.
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

Check out Wild Magic... They have a 9" walnut rod and its gems slip off into a glass! Different!

I have a small, black hot rod. It has colors on only half the dimples so that it does more than one change. So if you hold it one way, you have the illusion of a color in the entire simple. Upside down, it is another. Does anyone know what this one is? I haven't used it in years and am looking for the instructions

Ok, I found the instructions, this hot rod is called "Spectra!" from "Optical Oddities. The instructions are from David Pavlov. The power of this routine and stick is that the colors/no color is visible on all four sides! So with the audience looking at the stick below eye level, they see the top, left and right sides all change back and forth. Just thought I would put that out there in case anyone else has one or someone was looking for it. I got this 30 or 40 years ago.

I like the clear hot rod, it is very effective, since you can say "You can see right through here, no chicanery"

That being said, I have found tricks relying strictly on the paddle move somewhat underwhelming...

My favorite" gem stick" trick is Spot off (or similar name. You have a die with gems, specter rolls. Then you give it to them to hold tightly. Bring out a blank magic wand, tap spectators hand and the gems or on the stick. They open their hand, and it is off.

It seems like a childish trick, but trust me, it is a real fooler

PLUS this "goodie" was supplied with a second ungimmicked stick with the changed color on all four sides to further confound the onlookers. Smile
