Magical Demisions thanks so much. Peter does put out some excellent preoducts and it will be nice seeing someone established here on the Café such as yourself posting a video for all to see. Thanks. Will really be looking forward to it


Chris,

I think that Ray was giving us a hint that he wouldn't be putting up a video. Smile

At least, that's the way I read it.

Oh c'mon Ray if I can find time to post videos so can you.

But then again I sleep very little.

Never mind.

Here’s the good news. Is this levitation fun? YES. Is this exciting? YES. Might this unit inspire you, invite you to think outside the box, and, at first glance, fulfill something inside that says, “Wow, this is what real magic looks like”? YES.

Now for the grey areas:

Can I use any pair of shoes I want?
Um, kind of…

Do I have to be a gymnast to perform this?
If you want a smooth, slow, and graceful levitation without any visual means of support, then yes you will need some training in the gymnast department. If you can hold onto someone or something OR if you want a quick “jump up, jump down” motion, then you’re probably fine.

Does this require some construction, assembly, and tools?
Although this is not technically required, it is highly recommended. The care you put into the set-up will determine the life and durability of your unit.

While The One Levitation is a step in the right direction, there are still some flaws. The device is extremely fragile and prone to breakage. I followed the instructions, advice of others, and was very careful; however, my unit (and other customers’) started to crack on the first day. For nearly $150, I would have hoped that the unit was a little more sturdy and reliable. That being said, the unit does come with a 30 day warranty.

In my opinion, while this is one of the easiest and most user-friendly self-levitations on the market, executing this levitation convincingly will require considerable dedication and practice. As with any levitation or magic effect, you have two choices: you may present a stunt or a meaningful piece of theater. The effort you put into creating the effect will be reflected by what your audience gives you back.

For the money, this unit will give you more versatility than other self-levitations on the market. As with all effects, it ultimately comes down to your needs, style, and the impact you want to have on your audience. If you can “shock and awe” with your Balducci, then there is no reason to spend $150. But if you like what you see in the product demo and are looking for the next interesting, thought-provoking, fun, and versatile self-levitation, then this may be the one for you.

Mine came with a crack and half of it caved in, but I used some contact cement all over and it`s fine now. It should be fine for a very, VERY long time.

Well... for $150 maybe you could except focusing on how to perform the effect and make it look good instead of having to take out your tools and stuff in order to "finish the job" - assuming it is the case, I'm just referring to the above posts - (and I don't have rubber cement at home... so I guess I would have to go to the mall and get some...).

I was about to place my order, but I still hesitate a little...

I said CONTACT cement, not rubber cement. Contact cement will hold way better than rubber cement.

In my situation, I didn't have to do anything more than use some duct tape and contact cement. The contact cement was because I had to fix it but other than that it took me 5 minutes to set everything up. It varies from person to person.

I just opened the box and quickly read the instruction. It sounds very special and I will built my personal ONE during the upcoming weekend.
Thanks Peter and Ray for the combination of both self-levitations!

Hey Guys thanks for all the continued reviews, and videos. Just a note to all about the fragility, the units have now been coming with an add on that one can use for those who want to use thin soled shoes or different pre-set options, and elimates any chance of the product being damaged from any kind of footwear. For those that already have the unit without the new add on, then feel free to contact us and we can direct you to your local hardware store where you can pick up a similar add on for only a dollar or two.

Peter.
