Paddle Waggle by Willi Wessel(c. 1982,2016) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Ian Adair created one of the best paddle effects ever called Paddle Waggle.
I really enjoyed creating the website for the almost unknown German Craftsman Willi Wessel, I uncovered so many amazing tricks that I was not aware of. Although Willi has retired and is no longer building magic he did make this special version of his Paddle Waggle for me as a thank-you for the site. I was very happy because it turns out this is my all-time favorite paddle effect! If you ever get the chance to purchase any of Willi’s rare and amazing magic, jump on the chance!
Willi has created the best version of Paddle Waggle that looks and works perfectly. He has taken the Ian Adair’s version as a base, but he has added his own touch and twist, which makes all the difference.
Effect: It’s one of the cleanest and most surprising paddle routines that you will see. Magician takes from his pocket a small, nicely made paddle made from wood, lacquered grey. Over the paddle fits three plastic covers. The small covers are in alignment and cover the body of the paddle completely. Covers are decorated with colored plastic spots on each side. Magician freely shows the set-up then pulls the covers off to show the plain surface of the paddle beneath.
Covers are replaced and the magician commands the spots to JUMP, to leave the covers and to appear on the paddle beneath. Astonishment WHEN TWO OF THE SPOTS DO SO! The third set of spots remains static on the cover. Everything is freely shown and the spots have actually penetrated through the covers. The magician attempts to cause the last two spots to vanish and appear on the paddle.
Now for the beautiful climax … instead of the two spots leaving the cover, all six spots come together on it.
Approx. Price: $250.00 (2016) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
