Color Rod Divination by West German Craftsman, Unknown(c. 1965) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is a great item made well with a good mechanical method. All I know is it was made in West Germany, but certainly not recently. Ed Mishell released a similar effect c. 1970 but this set is nicer and I’m sure predates that version.
When performing this I would take all four rods out of the box as I found my fingers too big to easily take each rod out, so that could cause some delays in performance. This is always ready to go and there is nothing added or taken away.
Effect: In a box are four different colored , but otherwise completely equal sticks. There is also a brass-tube with a lid. You ask a member of the audience to put one of the sticks into the tube.
The others remain in the box which is then closed, so that the performer has no idea which color is in the tube. He now takes the tube, holds it a moment behind his back and he is able to indicate the correct color. Now he immediately hands the tube to an onlooker for control.
Approx. Price: $125.00 (2022) ***
