Hello. Has anyone here ever seen a magician hold a cane out between both hands and have a ball go up and down the cane? If so please email me or please share how good or bad the effect looked. Did it look magical?

Thanks

It looks more like juggling/balancing skill than magical... but if you sell it and do it well, go for it.

Pete is right. By itself it may not look good and magical but you can always combine it with ball manipulation to spice up the routine.

Sure it can become magical. It is a ball that refuses to obey the laws of gravity!

That's right. The difference between magic and juggling are the relationships between the object, the performer and ultimately the audience.
POOF!

Thanks fellows. So can someone help me with some methods that will work. I plan on using a golf club. Thanks

Petrick and Mia sell a floating golf ball that should work well for you. I just checked their web site and it is no longer listed. I have one I can sell. It is a newer version of the old Blondio ball trick. Ball travels from hand to hand.

Why didn't you mention a golf club in the beginning? You asked about a cane. Different problem owing to the shape differences.

BTW: I just thought of a way to do the ball bouncing off the club head ala Tiger Woods (but I ain't gonna tip it off). Smile

Michael Lair had a mini paper lantern that he did a similar effect with. It may have been a mini beach ball. It was very cheap and easy to do.

Dr. Peter Gloviczki had a billiard ball roll (actually creep) slowly down his arm into the last remaining space between his fingers. It is explained in one of his sets of lecture notes.

Thanks everyone. Mr. Baker do you have those lecture notes? I do remember Mr. Lairs routine now. Thanks Monte. Can you tell me more about the Blondio Ball? Thanks Pete I love that idea it would look like reel magic.

Thanks again.

Blondio (sp?) ball is explained in "It's Easier Than you Think" Vol 3 (the add on to the original book) by Geoffrey Buckingham. It's a similar effect where the ball is rolled along the top of a handkercheif. If you get some string and play you can put it together real easy though...
If you hit upon any problems let me know.

Gaetan Bloom rolled an egg across a wooden cane in a movie called "Henry & June" about Anais Nin a few years ago.
