David came by Dean's Shoppe a while back with his new version of the Pom Pom trick.
He introduced it that day to my customers and a few of the guys. Rich Hurley, Dr Bill, Jonathan Levit and a few more. The routine was not only fun but so well thought out. And the contraption, well what can I say. Brilliant. If you saw the working that went into making it you would say, No Way.
Check out the clip. Very clever and has a great ending. Finally. Great job David. Love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BTixtCZLnQ

You know, even a "Worst of David Regal" would still be great.
That is just killer! I have the Kovari version and it's good but the water ending is superb!!
How much?

This has to be one of the most inspiring reinventions of an old idea that I've seen in a while. Giving the magic a theme and motivation all the while adding practicality into a wide variety of performers' shows - my hats off to you Mr. Regal.

Very nicely done.
Things are about to change........ LIGHTS!!!

You are all very kind. To give credit where credit is due, the action of the "stick" is an invention of Louis Histed. Terry Seabrooke had the idea of adding plumbing fixtures to Chinese Sticks, and Pete Biro then added them to the Histed "Pom Pom" Sticks. I was always amazed by the basic principle of Histed's, but felt it was a better prop than effect as it had no real conclusion. It generally ended with the performer saying "I can't figure it out either..." and sort of fell off the table.

So I worked on a way to end the trick as I do in the demo (and I discovered that Mike Caveney, who was very supportive of my efforts, developed an enormously different way to do the same thing with Seabrooke's Chinese Sticks). Obviously I incorporated additional workings along with the original Histed idea. The final result is a prop that is self-contained and very practical. There are additional facts about it on my website.

Thanks again.

David

The thing would way a ton! OK...mayby not a ton. But it would be pretty heavy to be holding with one arm.

Very nice love the comic possibilities with this.
No one said it would be easy, or did they?
