How does it compare to other exploding lightbulb effect, like Yigal Mesika's Exploding Lightbulb, or HocusPocus's Exploding lightbulb?
Which one is easiest to perform? or end Clean?
Can the bag with the broken lightbulb from big bang be handed out for examination?
And the question is, Which one would you recommend buying?
I have it and I have had Yigal's (I lost it sadly), and both are very good.
Big Bang has several advantages and a few disadvantages. It make sense for the bulb to be in the bag - as glass will shatter. The beauty of BB is that you can get the spec to concentrate on her inner energy then tuch the bulb and it will smash on contact with her finger. You are merely holding the bag up.
There are numerous wonderful presentations possible. One idea I had was to do it in conjunction with Electric Touch (I just need to get an ET), but it is fun and very freaky for the spectator.
The only disadvantage is that it takes (me) a couple of minutes to get it in the bag - so I can't do that part impromptu - what I do is explain why it's in the bag and hand the bag with the bulb in it to the spec to look at the bulb and check it is a normal bulb. This is potentially a minor risk, but certainly not one that gives me any fear.
As to examining after - same thing - but I don't and have never been asked people are too freaked out to want to look.
I like BigBang
Yigal's tool - is also wonderful, and I did use it. All in all I refer Big Bang though.
