I also made a set of balls using the old style mouse balls as cores, covered with red felt. They work well for the vanish, and for windy days...

Check out Camille Gautier's "MAGIC WITHOUT APPARATUS". I THINK that that's where the Professor got the "inspiration" for the wand spin vanish. (The wand spin really adds a bit of "flash" to the vanish!

My copy of Gautier is in storage. If I get a chance, I'll check it and give you a page reference.

You could look up Ganson's explanation in "The Dai Vernon Book of Magic". Vernon's cups and balls routine was available as a separate pamphlet too. You can probably find an inexpensive copy on-line.

I believe Brian Watson, of http://www.cupsandballsmagic.com has some work on the wand spin as well.

I still use the wand spin myself. You can see it used at 1:29 in this routine.


I put a little something extra on top of the vanish. I learned it from "The Dai Vernon Book of Magic".


That's beautiful.
Aamar and others have said that Ganson's explanation was wrong and that it could not be done that way. Maybe we need to open another kettle of Vernon soup.
