Is the Kick Start move taught on the 101 DVD?

As far as the gimmick getting twisted on you, I might have a solution. I use a single thread with a bead at the end instead of a loop. Holding the bead between my 1st and 2nd fingers. This makes it very easy to switch hands and since it is not a loop twisting does not seem to be a problem.

The Kick Move is not taught on the Dancing Cane DVD 101. However, with the proper knowledge of how the trick actually works and little thought on your own, and you should be able to figure it out. It's actually easy. Or, if all else fails follow Nick's advice.

Well, sorry to throw some rain on the parade, but I am very disappointed with the cane. It came with the thread so twisted and knotted as to be totally unusable. And the instructions about changing the thread are obtuse and unusable. Until I can figure out how to change the thread, this thing is a useless doorstop.

One more thing, If you have a dancing cane, you can make your own moves?

Dear Winks,
Sorry that your disappointed! Why didn't you email or call to resolve your problem, instead of complaining about something that is easy to repair. Anyway to fix the cane all you have to do is take the top of the cane off and remove the weight. Replace the gimmick, then put the top back on. Your ready to go! And by the way, the whole Idea of Dancing Cane 101 DVD is to help you think outside the box and to come up with your own ideas. Nick

The thread on my cane was quite twisted and tangled when I first received it as well. A magnifying glass and about 10 minutes of time was all it took to correct the problem.

Having made a similar cane in the past (but nowhere as good a quality as David's), I know that the tangling occurs because of the weight mechanism sliding all the way up and down the inside of the cane. This only occurs when the cane is tipped upside down repeatedly in transport.

Although it is very easy to avoid tipping the cane upside down, it is a little more difficult to create an after-market solution so as to eliminate the problem in its entirety. One solution may be to have a removable cotter pin inserted to lock the weight in the down position. This will prevent the weight from doubling over on the thread when the cane is tipped upside down in transport. The pin could be removed when performing the effect.

Alternatively, if the weight is made of steel (I haven't opened my cane to take a look), you could create a magnetic "sleeve" to go over the outside tip of the cane during transport. The magnetic sleeve would be strong enough to hold the weight in place and prevent the tangling of the thread.

This may be an added feature that David may want to consider in later releases of the cane, since it would not likely add much more to the cost of production. In the interim, a small spool of extra thread would be nice to overcome the frustrations of those who receive the cane in a tangled condition. Just a thought from a loyal fan.

Nick,
Who was I to call? I got it through a dealer who could offer no help? I read the instruction sheets. How do you get the weight out? I take the top off but the weight will not slide out. Do you need to remove the rubber grommet through which the string passes? This is what has me so frustrated.

As far as the DVD, I think that is great. I just need help with getting the weight out.

Kevin,
Who were you to call? Well, how about contacting Precision Magic directly? Their internet address (website) is listed on the cane's packaging (it's right below the Precisionmagic logo: http://www.precisionmagic.com).

I feel it's kind of unfair of you to publicly complain about issues that could have easily been sorted out.

Btw. you do not need to remove the rubber grommet - nor should you do so. You might have to shake the cane a little bit or slightly tip it on the floor for the weight to come out.
