Is Stephane around these days? I didn't get a resposne from email or PM and am having some problems with the gimmick / technique.

@Powermagic, you should be able to do it with small groups, though there can be angle issues on one side, just like any other pull.

Agree- you definatley can do this with a group, just have to be concerned with the one side. And Stephane goes over this is good detail on the DVD.

@FrankL PM Stephane. . . I'm sure he will answer you he has been very helpful with me in the past. Or PM me I can assist I have one it's a little tricky to set-up the first time, but do it once and you are all set. He explains the set up and use really well in the DVD so if you haven't watched that then definately pop that bad boy in. It's detailed....

Stephane did get back to me and mentioned he's going to try to release a little extra information to address my (hook-up) question. He didn't say exactly how he'd post it, but it'd be for people who bought the product already. I presume he'll make a page on his site password protected or something.

@Frank - Stephane will help you out he is good that way.

@RNK Your right really only one angle to watch for. I'm super impressed with this technique and hook-up. As far as pulls go, this is worth every penny.

This looks really good Stephane.

Can Crystal Vanish be used as a clean-up device for T&R or Bill Changes? Can it be used to invisibly and cleanly switch one object for another?

Regards,

Laurence.

If you are a beginner- this would be fine. It's very easy to work. Any first timer would be able to do this and it would look great.

Hi, may I know if there are any clothing requirements for this effect? can it be done just wearing a long sleeve shirt over a tshirt instead of wearing a blazer?
Thanks Smile

No.. You have to wear some type of blazer/jacket. Though, you could wear just a long sleeve shirt unbuttoned over another shirt. Though, you wouldn't be able to retrieve the object if you do it that way. Well, actually you could but it would require a little more misdirection.

Best,

The method for showing your hands was already developed with the Raven.
Looks nice though.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.

?? You are unable to show your hands both sides with the raven (after hook up) as you can with Crystal Vanish.

I thought the same thing. Overall, this is much better than the Raven. Of course depends on what you are using it for, but I feel in general - the CV is a much better choice.

Yes you are able too. There is a rotation maneuver taught, I believe on the DVD, that allows you to show your hands front and back.

This video shows a couple different ways, though not the most subtly executed.

I own a Raven and have used it for many years. And I will continue to use it. The hook up on CV was originally developed for The Dragon and is a far superior hookup for overall control. Which allows for a much natural means of showing both sides of your hands even with rolled sleeves while hooked up. That's the clear difference, and why CV stands alone.

Also, you can perform this with a Vest or over shirt. Though with the over shirt best to vanish your own items for retrieval reasons.

Hi Laurence,

Yes, you can use CV for a switch or a T&R. The only technical issue IMO is to load CV while holding performing another trick in the mean time. It is easier to arrive with the CV gimmick ready to perform, rather than trying to load it in the middle of another performance.
I will make a new video, free to watch, to propose answers on how to do that. I will probably post that video by this summer though.
