So, you finally took out IR for the evening. Dancing to heavy metal!
Glad to hear it worked out well. You seemed somewhat concerned about the weight issue. Did you place it in a shoulder holster, or a hip holster? Keep your pants up boys! Smile

I put it in my back pocket. If it was not heavy though, it would not be as good Gaffed. Im just breaking it in now impromptu, for paid gigs, I will come up with something better. I may dig out a pistol holster of sorts and use that. An ankle holster would be great though also.

PS: With QB2, this will be a great followup, a 1-2 killer punch with proper routining and pacing. Bring your own quarter these days. I think having any change at a corporate gig is not classy (client wise).

Okay, for those who carry, I think I may have the solution I have been seeking. I found one of my old SOFT leather holsters I use to wear in plain clothes. Its more of a high rise but the card deck slides in and leans a little to the front. I need to jump around a bit and see how it holds but the primary thing is it will not mess up my designer belts I wear for corporate. Plus, I always wear a jacket. This serves a great purpose so as not to alarm anyone I may have a new type bicycle pistola of sorts. Testing to begin asap.

Here is the photo of my holster with Industrial Revolution installed:

Makes a pretty good quick draw and I am pretty dang fast. Also, with my Armani jacket, I can easily reach in and do a deck switch. Pocket space these days are pretty much at a minimum.

PS: Comments from the fam and especially from my teen (you look like a clown) not relative since a suit coat will be worn.

PSS: Usually I carry and stash a close up bag so the holster is only an additional option. The holster allows table to table convienience however. With something this good, I may not want to be without it, time will tell all, time will tell.
Hopefully Jaime will be working on an anvil next, that may be more of a space issue however. Smile

Thanks, Decomposed!

Great idea to use a holster. Believe me this baby is hefty. I think I might try picking up a belt holster or even better an ankle holster on that big auction site.

Also, I have the spectator remove the block from the case for maximum impact and am very careful they don't drop it on their toe.

I hate to say it but I think at the end of the day the weight of this prop will limit its long term utility

I was thinking a Sherpa might be a good idea.

It's up to you as a performer to figure how to carry it around and manage space for it.

The holster idea is actually pretty fantastic.

It's up to you as a performer to decide if it is worth making space for.

I've had mine in my front jeans's pocket for months now, with no no problems. That said, I do officially have a complex, ever since this thread started, that I'm wearing my pants too tight, lol!

Me thinks it is well worth the effort. Not only is it beautifully constructed, a novel effect never before seen in this format (who uses match boxes anymore?), and has the surprize impact of the sponge balls.

Decomp, have you tried handcuff holsters?

Would any of those fit? My dad is a retired police officer - but I won't be around his old stuff any time soon to experiment on my own.
Things are about to change........ LIGHTS!!!

Here is a video demo from a casual performance yesterday at The Grove here in Los Angeles.

My 12 year old was holding the camera and did a great job - this is the first video demo I've ever posted so please be kind Smile

Bottom line is that this (hopefully) really captures the magical moment and why Industrial Revelation is such a killer effect:

Look out Ellusionist! Brett is now doing "Check it out" videos!

Great job, Brett! I really enjoyed it. We have all shared so many ideas, and as more magicians get their hands on this, the presentation ideas will grow!
