Hi everyone,

Just wanna know, do you bend your gimmick or just keep it straight?
Now I just keep it straight, what is your opinion?
Thanks,

Id be nervous that bending the gimmick would make it harder to hide.

To say more would be exposure.

On the contrary, If the bend is flipped so the gimmick is curved towards the ground- this can really give a nice visual of the hanky looking more natural- the side with the gimmick won't be so strait to your fingers- having a bend enables you to play with the tension while holding the corner which makes the hanky look more natural. I use this ALL the time! No on has ever questioned me.

What does it look like when you do the "flip" and hang the hank down from your fingertips?

This is the place it concerns me.

That would be a bad thing.

I would leave "the thing" alone.

It's good the way it is.

there's nothing you can do to "it" to make people think "more" that it is levitating.

Speaking of cigars...

Looks like more people just keep it straight.
What is Bill's username that I can PM him?
