Flash Silk Wand (Metal Tips)

Postby flash_da_magic_man » Apr 14th, '09, 19:13



The Effect
Display a silk and a magic wand and tap the silk with the wand. The silk INSTANTLY and very VISUALLY vanishes into thin air!

Even perform surrounded, and without sleeves, as there is no pull involved. Specially gimmicked 16" mechanical Wand, metal gimmick and 9" pure silk hank.

Can vanish up to a 12" silk! Metal Wand powder coated!



Cost
$17.95
can be bought from mjm magic

Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

I would rate this as a 1 becuse it is self working or at least it's supposed to be.


Review
First of all it cannot vanish a 12" silk as the description states.
The wand is 16" long and just over half an inch thick but it could only manage to vanish is a 6" silk, if you use a larger silk lets just say youre highly likely to educate your audience. If all I wanted to vanish was a 6" silk I would just use a TT.

Also there is a problem with it damaging your silks due to the method used for vanishing. To be honest I wouldnt be too worried about it damaging my silks over time if the thing just did what it was advertised as being able to do.

I would not recommend this particular silk vanishing wand to anyone at all as it simply does not work, hopefully I will be able to find another one that does work.

If anyone can recommend one I would appreciate it very much :)



Overall

I'd give it 0 out of 10
it's completely useless.

Don't pull your punches, lad. Say what's on your mind! ;)

That is the funniest review I have ever read on here. I rate it 10 out of 10 for entertainment value alone. Thanks for warning us! :D
