There are so many now, some good and some better,
What do you use and why, what don’t you use and why.
Please share with us using some detail, no one or two words will do in this thread.
Below is a list of products, if I missed one, please add it in. Also if you know of a link showing some performances of this effect, share it here. Share your tips if you like too.

Childs Play
Leyser 20/20
Midas
Mental Detector
UFO II
Sixth Sense
A standard PK Ring
Templar and Relic
Physiological Subtleties. The book
Eye to Eye
Rhine sense/Probe

I use the original CP with a coin, I have on order the Templar, and it will go in my Luna Key Box where I can wrap an entire story around it and in most situations I can and will use Luna first. I often use one black marble and a PK ring, the marble is in a clear force bag, the spec takes one and I use their energy that comes from them and the marble while in their hands, I ask that they rub it, play catch with it etc. Creating energy, Prior to, I include a bit of patter , like , I will use all the marbles , then change and say, but today let’s try it with just one, here you choose. After doing it 3 times with one person, I ask for another person to join in, I allow them to choose between themselves, then for the last experiment, I offer either them to hold it or they can place it under my hat, or cup etc. what ever I have close.

That's not all like Max Maven's Kurotsuke ... but we've to add Gauci's "Body Language", Christopher Taylor's "Eclipse" and Craig Filicetti's "Red Handed". Jan

Personally, I now just love doing Max's original version with a subtlety from Chad that makes it a winner. No electronics, nothing to break down and nothing to worry about.... and I can do it impromptu.

Have to give another Heads Up to Jon Gordon's version. No electronics but it appears completely "hands off"....and you know which person has the black ball!

This is in his lecture notes and you WILL need to make up the necessary!

Not a totally original method....but the handling makes all the difference!

This is certainly my method of choice and one that I currently use in my show!

Mine... I hope this doesn't give too much away. Brown paper bag. 4 ten pence pieces. One (copper but m*****c) 2p piece... and, wait for it, a PAPERCLIP.

Piece of cake!

If you like 'which hand' there is always Proximity

You can see me do it here:

And read about it here

Maybe not my best performance, but I think you get the point and the difference in method should be obvious. No, I'm not wearing a chest pad, that is just how it played.

Thanks,

Christopher Taylor's Equinox (and now Eclipse) have the distinction of allowing you to be quite a distance from your participants - with no requirement to touch the bag/coin purse (at any point!), which is a nice attribute.

Promystic's Proximity is unbelivable. You will not be disappointed.

How on earth I could leave out Christopher Taylor, I love him, his products are great and his service is the best, I use his Soltice wallet in my trade show work and it is amazing.

Never thought of mighty putty! Even while watching Billy Mays (RIP) on TV recently!

Great idea! My local pound shop has some in too!

Greg,

I too love the original, but now I'm curious. Greg, Chad who? And where is it written up?

Thanks

Greg, you've done a wonderful thing. Many thanks.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I may get tired of performing it but it surely is timeless.

I see for the pennies and paper clip, but can't they get their hands dirty with the piece of cake ??

I did something comparable, and stopped, because I selected a woman with fancy gold rings on the left hand, she was lefty, she plunged her hand in the bag and said 'Oh !' .. people and I she got injured or something .. and when her hand came out the bag, she had something stuck to her jewelry !!

looks like sometimes gold is not gold !
Anyway, how can you predict a lefty !
