Never had the first one but just ordered 2.0 in the hopes its that good.

I really liked the first version. Nice to have different colors but much easier to do it with a water bottle and white cap. At least if you spill some water it will not get sticky like coke or pepsi.
Have a little water in the bottle, drink it and insert pen or straw.

You make a very valid and practical point. Thank you.

Or after inserting the straw drink the water. Then remove the straw and make it look all good.

I have the original, and while its very clever, this sounds greatly improved. Unfortunately my skycap never got much use. While well crafted, there were design elements that always drew suspicion if handled. While I don't alway require props to be examinable, this is one instance where people truly want to touch and feel it because it is SO visual and so impossible.

I will second the recommendation of using a water bottle with white cap for any who jump on this. ALL of the heat is on the cap, and assuming the photos are of production versions, IMO there is enough of a discrepancy from a Coke / Pepsi cap that it will likely be noticed. Even if they don't find the workings, they'll be way too suspicious of the cap.

You can easily get off-brand water bottles that the spec is far less likely to recognize which will go a long way...

My 2 cents..

This shows that the demand for white caps far exceeds the Red & Black caps. Hence the producers should make more white caps. Is Mr. Paul Harris and team listening?

* These have proved very difficult to make and there is a very good chance that the first batch will be the only one made.

* Murphys even told me they don't even expect to list this on their website as all the stock looks like it may be pre sold before the release.



In that case this version should have been named "Skycap - Special Limited Edition".

It is surprising that they never made more white caps
As that colour is more common than the red and black ones

Hopefully the feedback given will enable them to put out more next time

But have ordered the black one in meantime . As don't want to wait for next batch as sounds it could be a while

Karl, you wouldn't want to do that as it would most certainly effect is ability to work.

We still have all three colors available, although white is certainly dwindling fast.

These caps are super clean, even right up close - and the new updates are very, very cool.

I have a white one on order. Love the 1st one but the 2.0 will make it that much better. I don't care if I get a price break because I own the 1 st one. Its not like they both just came out.

I just have to chime in on this. I bought the first version and I LOVE it. I use it in my parlour shows and it has received such great reactions that it quickly became a main staple of my act. Andrew, I just placed my order with you and I cannot wait to get this latest version. The improvements will definitely help to make my performance of this wonderful effect even more convincing than ever.

Hi friends
Happy to know your response. Actually after 1000 sets I still try to improve on the mold and spoild the mold. Now if we get good response I will start working on the new mold. You know how expensive and time consuming to make the new moulds. If I get the good response on this 0.2 Sky cap then I start working on it. If we are sure of selling another 2000 pieces at least then it is worth investing on the new molds. It may take another 1 to 2 months for the next lot if any.😊

Does anyone have the any of the white caps left?
