I would like to thank everyone for all your wonderful comments, I'm glad I did not disappoint. Thank you all Smile It feels great knowing my Vid is convincing your wifes to let you guys spend your own money, now that's a tuff one!lol Smile

Reguarding why I was in the doorframe? It was simply the best spot for me as far as enough light, no exposure, etc, and down the hallway was not an option, as a guests could come storming out there room at any time. At-least I would hear if someone was coming down the stairs where I was at. I simply rested my elbow/wrist on the frame with my hands spread in full view, so I would not be accused of lifting myself up, something I learned with FLY. I was not putting any pressure on the door frame, more-so leaning on it a tad. I usually place my index finger and thumb on the wall (with left hand and rest of fingers closed) in a "V" formation while levitating, this gives enough friction to balance better, and no one is going to question 2 fingers on a wall, as no-one ever has while performing FLY or ONE.


The same guest from the video came down from her room tonight and I showed her the Vid, she is still freaking out! Smile


Blueroyalty: The gimmick doesn't malfunction, it's simply how some have put it together whiched caused it to fail.


Peter is said to be back today, it shouldn't be long before we get our answers Smile

Thanks for downloading the vid Piz! I really would like to see another demo though (not necesserally from you) without the "help" of the doorway (I know it doesn't really help, but my girlfriend found that weird... Smile ).

Maybe Ray Noble will soon have finished with his demo!

^^^ Hey, pulling myself up with my wrist on the other-side of a slippery doorway is quit impressive in itself! I'll take that explaination! Smile

If I could get "air" under my feet just by slightly leaning on a door frame I'll take that too! Once again nice work Piz!
It's not the size of the wand that matters, it's the "magic" in it...

Oh, but I didn't say the contrary! The levi DID look good on the video. It's just that it didn't 100% convince HER, although she did find it impressive indeed!

I don't think I would... Levitating in the middle of nowhere is the most impressive!

I know some magicians like to let the spec have the beginning of an explanation, even if it does not explain everything. I'm not one of those.

But I'm sure that with the ONE you CAN levitate it in the middle of nowhere (like shown in the trailer)! Smile

"I showed my wife the video Piz made and she said "WOW, you need to get that!" Thank you Piz! Placing my order asap!


After showing the video to my GF she made a similar a comment: "Wow!...hun, are you going to get that? That would be the freakiest thing yet!

Sounds like someone has just okayed a soon-to-be-made purchase!!! Yes!

Thanks Piz!!! If you're ever in San Antonio....a cold, frosty "beverage" of your choice will be on me! Smile

Warmest Regards,

Never understood the why men ask their wives, let alone their girlfriends, if they could spend their own hard earned cash. If YOU were convinced and want what you saw, then you should get it. The day they financially support us, then maybe.

Oh... But I don't ask permission for that!!! First, in a diplomatic point of view, it's better if my GF likes what I buy (same thing for her when she buys a new dress or a new bag... it's better if I like the dress or the bag); then, I also like her point of view because she doesn't think like a magician, even if she knows a few things: if she finds it impressive, then I know that there's a chance that the product is really good. If not... well I might still get it if I like it.

But again, I intend to get the ONE. I'm only waiting for Peter to say a few words regarding what has been discussed while he was away (fragility etc...).

^^^I agree in that sense 007. Like when I'm buying clothes, colognes, etc...I just don't get it when some have to literally ask if it's ok.

I've got to agree, considering this levitation should be something which will ultimately make them more money if used correctly.
I suppose if someone were a hobbyist using their wife's money, that would be another matter.

Hey Guys, thanks for the commnets, and great video from Piz!

Ok the product while it is not a tank(and it really can't be for certain weight and balance reasons) it however will also last and take abuse as long as you don't use option 1 with thin soled running shoes. If you have a problem for any other reason, we will replace it with a valid warranty no problem. I have also had many customers receive their units and are not having any issues either with the fragility of the prop but they are using a different option set up. We have been making the wood part slighty thicker to add more strength just in case, while the product still should not be set up with thin soled running shoes and option one it will create over all durability. Now Holly said she dropped hers. While I still haven't got to her email yet, no problem, send me a pic of whats wrong and we will get you fixed up no problem. Again it is durable but the product is not ment to be dropped, and if you do drop the product yes you can damage it. But I have lots of magic like this that cannot be dropped. This product has heavy parts to it mixed with lighter parts so when you drop something like this it can suffer damage, but this is not a defect in the product, its jut not ment to be dropped. All I can suggest about that is don't drop it.

Anyway, I am very happy to read the other reviews and everyone's excitement on the prop, and Piz's video that was great! Looking forward to more user videos!

Peter.

Guys (and Gals)
Given the fragile nature of some of the parts, any issues for "larger magicians" like myself, who tip the scales near 240? (was an issue for E2)

Thanks,
S

Peter,
Would you please address the weight concern? I would be very interested in hearing your response.

Warmest Regards,

Hi JR, Again, this will support people of 250 pounds, as long as you don't use thin soled running shoes with option 1 set up and make sure to use a flush adjustment with option 2 then you should not have any problems. I personally use option 3 and I think it is the best option to use, it just takes a little more prep time. The reason why there is this unforeseen pressure is that the shoe is changing on the bottom due to the fact of the thin soles or lack of inside metal support most shoes have with option 1 which causes the damage to the gimmick. Otherwise there should never be any stress or pressure on this part.

The video looked great Piz!

Can this be done in thin soled tennis shoes with the second or third set up options? Also, do the different set up options affect the appearance, difficulty, and/or cleanliness of the levitation?

You should have no problems using the other set up options. It will not lessen or change the difficulty or clenliness of the levitation in any way. The out come in effect, performance and everything else is virtually the same. There are different set up options provided so that it will suit just about anybody. It just turns out that set up option 1 can damage the gimmick if used with thin soled shoes. Once you get the system then these things will make more sense.
