Before the crash, a topic turned up by Taylor Imagineering and his website. After giving it a good look, discovered a nice piece called Real Ghost. Watched the video and it was something that I felt could fill a void in one of my routines.

So... simply asked a few questions within the topic like.... can it be performed over and over without reset? Can the person be cued with multiple taps or just one? Also there seems to be a jacket hanging on the spectators chair, does it have to be there? To me, these are important questions for a professional to consider.

I also had mentioned that I'd be interested in buying multiple gimmicks. Low and behold, the lame answer from Mr. Taylor was "Watch the video, what you see is what you get!"

Once again, a lame answer from another creator who is just to freakin good to help a potential customer out. (Customer service is getting bad in the magic market). My answer to him is, "I've watched Criss Angels videos, and what you see is not what you get." Sorry the video isn't going to make the sell! And that answer, to me, builds major suspicion!

I only want to check into it first as the piece is 300.00 and am not going to throw away good cash based on a video. Ive been around to long and have seen souped up videos to sell a lame gimmick. For 50.00 ill take the risk, but not for the price of this piece, and definitely not on multiple orders.

Sooooo... does anybody out there want to give credibility to this piece with some meat behind their comments, or should I just move on and keep using my PK Touches routine as it is.

If I can help...


The three videos you can watch on the Taylor's website (PK Touch, The Wasp, The Spirit Bell) can be actually performed as you see them, thanks to the Real Ghost.

I, for example, came up with four different routines of my own for the R.G. and I have already performed two of them (which I named "The Volic Force 2007" and "The Intelligence Of Plants & Flowers") more than once. With great results, I must add.

And I know Luke Jermay and Patrick Redford came up with some other routine...

I would say that the friendly ghost is a great gizmo.

As for the multiple taps - No - you cannot with a factory made ghost... unless it can be custom build exactly as I have in my mind now... then, you could do that, but I don't find it necessary and neither practical.

Oh, Yes - In my above post, I did forget to add that I have also used the ghost to CUE some info to a secret helper.

So, also think about that, you can do some simple (or less simple) coding with the Ghost.

With the many uses I came up for it up to now, I REALLY believe that using it JUST for "PK Touch" is to waste the versatility of the Ghost.

Thanks Lord....

Can you answer the question about the jacket on the chair in the video. Is it necessary. Trying to get an idea on the setup needed. Sounds good so far!

I've done business several times with Mr. Taylor and have found him to be very gracious, honest and always accessible. Lame is about the last word I'd use to describe anything he's said or done in our transactions.

Videokideo,

I have never used ANY jacket in any of MY routines. So - it can be done.

And MY various sets-up only took a few seconds.

Believe me - the gizmo in itself is much, much simpler than what you may be thinking now (and I mean that in a good sense!) and it is very light to carry AND small (I can carry up to two (2) Ghosts into one (1) pocket of my pants).

The ghost may be used to cue information - with some creative thinking . They're small. The operation is very simple. It "taps" someone without physically tapping them.

Im not trying to be rude by using the word lame... but when a potential customer asks very simple questions, and the answer is just short of blowing that customer off, that to me is lame! Look at Lord... somehow he has answered each question, yet he gains nothing as the creator would. Its called customer service. Maybe Im just a nobody to him.... who knows.

Lord... once again, thanks. And also to you, Patrick!

Anyway, Ill go ahead and order one for now, maybe another after. And LORD should get the commission on this sale! At the very least, a big thank you!

I want to extend an apology to videokideo if he felt "blown off" as it was certainly NOT my intention to do so. I recall answering several other questions from you very openly but I honestly thought that with your last question we were reaching the limit of what chould be discussed while retaining my right to keep the actual secret of the effect a secret. To those of you who have come to my aid here, thank you for doing that and for pointing out to me ways to give the gentleman the info he wanted without going too far. Since Real Ghost is now mostly out of the closet, so to speak, I will be happy to answer questions about it either here or on a PM. Cheers, all.

Christopher, then, because the Real Ghost is out of closet...

I can add YET ANOTHER THING... You can use that little jewel to cause some object to FALL!

A little recap:

- It can tap people
- It can cue / code some info
- It can cause objects to fall down
- It is easy to operate

FIVE STARS OUT OF FIVE!

As someone who has known Christopher for many years, I can add that the thought,work and care he puts into the remarkable products he produces is rare indeed. He subscribes to a scarce work ethic being, "good enough isn't good enough".

Moreover, the warranty on his website http://www.taylorimagineering.com speaks volumes of his sincerity to stand behind everything he sells.

Relax, buy & enjoy. Your audiences will thank you.
