The Chinese Linking Rings along with the Cups & Balls must rank up there as the most abused and misued effects of all time. But when performed correctly they are beautiful – even when you think you know how they are done. I remember seeing Johnny Hart perform these years ago, and it was so very magical. I seem to remember Tommy Cooper having fun with them too!
The original attaboy is still the best in my opinion. The cheap indian import looks ok until you try using it then you realise how much better this one is. Very convincing: you take cards from the bottom holder and place them in the top holder. Stop whenever the spectator says so, and in your hand is their card!
Seven Keys to Baldpate, by Theo Anneman and Mark Strivings, started a revolution of keys and lock effects. This one is one of the better ones since the box and the keys can be handled by the spectators and not once does the magician need to touch the box or keys. Very clean and beautifully made.
Lee Woodside has some nice ideas and this one is no exception. It is a straight forward prediction of a freely chosen playing card using an ungimmicked tape recorder, with a wonderful line of patter. Great entertainment potential. I like this one!
The Head Chopper routine can be one of the most entertaining and exciting for an auidence. This small chopper I bought back in the ’70s has served me well, and is not as scary looking as my $link(1363,Deluxe Head Chopper) so is more suited to a younger audience. Particularly if you say its a Lie Detector!
I really love this effect! It can certainly be played for laughs, but with a very real sense of Danger. The secret with this one is to really throw it around, and make sure everyone realizes how sharp the knife is. When done right, this is always a crowd pleaser!
