I can only get it to rise about 45 degrees as well. Not sure why as I can get the straw one to stand all the way up. So what am I doing wrong with this version? It may be the way the gimmick is inserted. Can any of the creators help on this. I apparently am not the only one with this issue.

On the DVD Rogue stands it more towards the rear of the hand ( he has long fingers ). If you place it more towards the front the palm ( closer to the finger base ) that should do it.

Just received this a couple of hours ago in The Great White North
and here are my initial thoughts:

I love this effect a hell of a lot, simple yet eerie
(I need to work up a presentation, and practice to feel natural and smooth with the handling)
The actual working is easy as pie, just needs polish on my part
The gimmick is great! In fact I pulled it out and gave it a good once over before popping in the DVD and I tell you that even though I "knew" the principle I could not see the workings upon visual inspection.
The DVD is clear concise and to the point, I liked it as far as layout and handling tips were concerned.
I hope after some considerable practice and use I can become 3/10th as smooth as Rogue in performing this lol.
I had read that some had issues with the DVD, mine played perfectly in every device I have, with all chapters watchable and intact.

I would like to sincerely thank Rogue,Six and System Six for this fine effect, I am very pleased with my purchase

(one small note to System Six though, you might want to keep your order info updated on your site, as mine still shows as unfulfilled even though I have it in my hot lil hands lol, I must say though that after a couple of days I emailed, and Six emailed back promptly to assure me that it was in fact on it's way, great customer service right there!)

I would urge anyone on the fence, to dive right in as I know I will be working this sucker to death

I think it would be cool if they would offer ungimmicked "dummy" models for cheap so you could kind of use them as giveaways. Somebody enjoys the effect, and it would be nice to have a spare in your pocket so you could say "Here. I have a spare that you can have." Of course the ulterior motive is to get them to take it home so they can spend the rest of their days trying to get it to stand up. (Sort of like a cat chasing a laser light.) 
Yeah. I have a sick mind.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Possibly. But perhaps they could make it of a cheaper material minus the gimmick. If they could do this so we could purchase them for a buck or so , it might be feasible.

You hit the nail on the head.the craftsmenship is excellent.
Show's just what someone can make out of some regular twig's.
I was just saying you want find any less expensive material to make
it out of other than what it is made of.

My cat loves mine. She stole it off my prop table by my bed. Drug it half way across the house.

The DVD recommends using a black marker to help conceal the gimmick. For safety reasons, I am not sure if that is a good idea.
