Wondering where I can get myself the best bang for my buck silk streamers. To fit in a Max Krause's Versatile Production Screen??

Also how many do you think I could fit in this baby?

Be a kit to maybe open with this and drowned a kid with silks or myself...


Anyone else own one of these and use it as an opener?

Maybe I need to re explain what I was asking for.

Looking for the best streamers I can get for my temple screen (I use the Versatile Production Screen version)

Any suggestion?

Looking to use it as my new openor

Could I also suggest a Line of Silks.............. it's 16 silks (could 12-inches or 18 inches or even 24-inches depending on the load space) sewn on to a long ribbon (line). I have always gotten a good response.

You can contact Bob Sanders here on The Café on the Line of Silks.

Thanks Jimmy!

I just sent a PM to Bob Sanders.

See if he responds back with pricing

I just thought I could fit a much longer streamer in than I could fit in a line of silks.

See what Bob says.

Here is a segment of a post by Bob Sanders on the Line of Silks:

"The Line-of-Silks is a very useful prop. And yes, it will fit in your coat top pocket for steals. Try punching the bottom out of a paper cup and reaching through to produce the Line-of-Silks that appear to be coming from the cup. Of course you can fill a 36' stage with the production. Then retrieving the silks gives you cover for producing huge body loads, table loads, etc. It certainly changes a small act into a stage act with great simplicity. A common problem for magicians is learning to use a whole stage with a stage show. There is a big difference in a stage show and others. Frankly, even most tricks for TV won't work in a real stage show.

There is no specific book for Line-of-Silks. It is just a production item that has served me very well for many decades. It has all the advantages of large streamers without the disadvantages. It doesn't twist and if you damage a place on a streamer, the whole streamer is ruined but with a Line-of-Silks you just replace the damaged silk.

You got the most practical size with the 18" silks. Often I use the one with 24" silks for larger stages (48' wide stages). The 12" size is good for smaller work areas like platforms in nightclubs, meeting rooms, etc. The 9" size is for small rooms like home birthday parties and still gives about a 15' production. The 18" size is the best size for most situations and only takes about the space of a pack or two of cigarettes when loaded. That is the reason it will also fit most pockets in clothing. I like to think of it taking the space of a small frozen orange juice can. (That may also help you with ideas! Mixed fruit punch?)

One of the ways Lucy and I use the larger Line-of-Silks (18" or 24") is to start one end and let the audience pass it around the perimeter of the room and come back to us. It is especially good for audiences that can not come up on stage to participate. This solves a major problem with nursing home and hospital audiences."

A Line of Silks Production is a lot of eye candy and always gets good reactions.

Why choose? Perhaps you can load a streamer as well as a Line of Silks.

Thanks Jimmy!!

Some very valid points!

Especially the damage deal..

Do you have any links to buyers of "line if silks"

I just always assumed I could load double the amount of a stream in the same place as any silks.

I looked on Bob's website and I do not see any place to buy any line of Silks.
