So I’m not the only one who thinks that this Blue Phantom by Andy Hurst is better than the Voit one … Wayne Dobson, who performed the Voit one live on British TV, thinks so too!
This is what Wayne had to say:
I’ve had so many inquiries about the close up version of The Blue Phantom that I performed on my close up T.V special, people asking where can they get one? Well, they couldn’t! Until now, when my good friend Andy Hurst has made just a few and they are absolutely stunning, in fact they are better than the original one that I used! The craftsmanship is just perfection; please watch this space as they will be available very soon.
I’ve been a big fan of Harry’s Leat’s Run Rabbit Run for almost forty years and over the years have owned quite a selection of effects based on the idea. But this is the first time I have seen Kovari’s Turbo Bunny – and boy is he aptley named: he moves really, really fast! It is quite amazing how fast that little trigger makes this little guy move. Internally there are a number of pulleys that make the magic happen. But externally it is just woosh, woosh, woosh!
This Bunny also comes with the popping out of the side and as far as I know was the first RRR to have the bunny pop out of the top (Chance Wolf added it to his Run Wolf Run and I’ve seen a few others, but not one this old).
This is a rare find and if you are a RRR fan you’ll definitely want this!
I’ve had various color changing records/cds over the years but this is the most magical and visual. It even includes a final color change at the end using the Instant Art principle which looks very clean indeed.
I was always a big fan of Magic Hands from Germany. They consistently made high quality magic and had some great ideas. This was one of their big sellers and the quality was amazing.
If you’re looking for a showy production from three silks that you show individually with no body loads this is the one for you. The umbrellas are very well made and very bright and showy. Comes with all the silks and umbrellas you need to work this beauty!
So this is Magiro’s Fantastica or Fantastic Triple Production. From a seemingly empty clear tube you produce 12 silks in total in 3 distinct phases.
It all looks very convincing and it is easy to perform. If you were doing a parlor act and wanted to produce a lot of color this would be the way to go.
There is one load but it is made under cover of the first production which is basically automatic and there is plenty of misdirection for the simple action. So you end up producing all of these silks for a clear tube which is clearly empty at the beginning. Very nice!
So this is a version of the Dr. Stanly Jaks ‘Supersonic Card Prediction’ with a nice acrylic frame. You might remember the awful one Hank (do you remember him?) put out about twelve years ago. This is much better.
The frame itself is very nicely made and whether you use it for this trick or need it for another display of cards it does look neat. If you were thinking of using it for an Ultissimo type effect you might be disappointed as the frame does not easily rotate around. It probably could with some filing down, but as it arrives it is pretty stiff (the way it should be of course).
When I first watched the video for this I was not sure how it worked at all and really liked the routine. The box is very nicely made and looks great in the parlor or on stage. The method is easy when you know how, but I still think it is clever and a fooler for sure.
This could be a real hit in your show. Great Comedy and Great Magic!
I’m a big fan of the Pom-Pom Prayer stick and I’m also a big fan of Harries Magic in Sweden. This effect combines both: a very clever version of the Pom-Pom Prayer stick made by Harries.
The tubes are well finished and the mechanism is very smooth and silent. The hook up is also very easy. It appears to work exactly the same as the Pom-Poms, but with the added complexity of three strings instead of two.
I’ll leave it up to you whether the added string makes this more impressive or more confusing, but this is certainly a clever idea and beautifully executed as you have come to expect from Harries.
