I see that the eclipse tip comes in medium and large. Can anyone tell me how these sizes compare to the Vernet standard thumb tip? For me, the Vernet is a perfect fit right from the store.
Thanks!

There is actually a bit of variation in the Vernet Tips. Try the medium Eclipse tip. I think it will work fine for you. Remember, the tip does not need to fit far down onto the thumb. It should "perch" on the end of it.

Thanks, Bill! I appreciate your advice. I'll give medium a try.

For me, the Vernet tips fit almost perfectly. The Eclipse Tip medium is just a touch larger.

One thing you can do if you find that the Eclipse tip is a bit loose, is to either apply a tiny bit of adhesive tape to the inside of the tip. Since the Eclipse tip is softer than the Vernet, it will accommodate the shape of your thumb a bit differently.

Goop is another adhesive that will build up an enlarged area. After curing, Goop ( found in hardware stores in the glue section) will form a lasting, flexible bond. It can be gradually built up to your specific needs.

Thanks, Bill and Nick, for those customization ideas. I may need them. Now, I'm getting anxious to get the eclipse with the DVD. After viewing Magic of the Spheres on Berry's website, I was particularly impressed with the handling. That is the way I would imagine balls would multiply in the hands of a magician...a truly beautiful performance. I have great expectations that I will find something here to improve my own performance.
Again, thanks for the tips.

Fabric sticking plaster tape on the inside of a tip is about the right consistency of tape to fill a space and give a grip.

BlackShadow,
I'm not familiar with the tape you mention. Is it something you use to seal the seams in dry wall...or is it something else. What about flexability, etc.

It's the stuff you might use to hold on a medical wound dressing or tape up a cast. It's sold as elastoplast fabric tape in the UK. It's got good holding power on the adhesive, fabric side is designed to be used next to the skin and is sligtly padded and is flexible. It's also flesh coloured so has uses in other different gimmick situations used in the hands where the tape might be on show.

BlackShadow,
Thanks for the information. It does sound like it could be put to good use for a variety of magic related situations. I will definately look into it.
