Raven Slates by Docc Hilford

The Effect
A pair of slates which the audience can see and hear spirit messages as they VISIBLY appear.

Cost
$175 But Docc sells them at his lectures for $100

Difficulty
No sleights, but not so easy Not hard just you will have to practice especially making the boards talk.

Review
I bought these back in the summer to use in my séance in October and was very happy with the responses I got. I use Rick Maue's B.O.S.S. for the body of the séance and in the middle there is a manifestation which is where I used the slates. It work perfectly and really freaked out the audience. As I have already said you will have to practice with these as they are not your run of the mill slates.

Here are some of the points to remember concerning these slates.

No flaps, Rollers, or Blinds,
No extra slates.
No switches
No special numbering
All 4 sides of both slates are washed clean
No white carbon
the messages actually appear written in chalk
Nothing is added or taken away
The sound of the chalk writing comes from the slates
No outside recordings or hookups
No assistant needed work these by yourself completely surrounded
The slates can be examined before and after

That was all the good news now for some of the bad;

You will have to be in contact with the slates to control the sound of the chalk writing on the slates.

You will have to take very good care of the slates as they are FRAGILE

You will have to buy more chalk from Docc. Nuff said about that.

These are limited editions so you won't be able to get them forever.

Overall
I was and am very pleased with these slates and recommend them to any working professional.

i've been tempted by these for quite a while, the cheapest i can find them is for £100 at the moment...

what size are they? the kinda A4 size ones? or like those smaller locking versions?

I couldn't find a ruler but they appear to be 7 1/2 in by about 9 1/2 in.

Hope that helps.
