I need help because my zombie ball gimmick broke. What happenend was while I was playing around with it,watching L&L's World's Greatest Magic for the Zombie Ball, the stick detached itself from the cork and when I try sticking it back in, it just comes right back out when I try to use it again,preventing me from praticing the trick. Is there a way to fix it, or will I just need to buy a new gimmick. The ball and the gimmick are made by Morrisey, and any advice would appreciated a.s.a.p since I was planning on performing it at the Louisville Magic Club picnic. Thanks

My personal advice would be to make your own gimmick anyway. I've run into very few commercially made gimmicks that were made well and the length is rarely the right length for each individual performer.

Does the gimmick attach with a staple, or is it screwed on through an eyelet?

You could try some glue to hold the attachment. But building your own is best, especially the part that attaches to your hand. I built one based on one I saw years ago that allowed you to use your index and middle finger, giving more support and control. It was made of sheet metal and sort of formed a sleeve that you slid your fingers into. It worked a lot better than the wire loop type finger attachments.

Does anyone know where I can get the cloth that makes the zombie vanish?
