Sea-Ling’s Orb of Truth by Richard Gerlitz(c. 2006) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: This is the latest from that remarkable craftsman, Richard Gerlitz, and, believe me, this new release is so much better up close than the photos that Richard put up on his site, and that includes my own. For some reason, the vibrancy of the apparatus is not captured. It clearly is a showpiece and the mechanics is to feast on for cleverness. The working is smooth and effortless, so you can stir up quite a presentation for a truly magical experience. Every detail has been carefully thought out and meticulously carried out in the construction of this apparatus.
The felt mounts at the base of each column provides perfect alignment and steadies each cover tube; no fussing needed. Use of small screws with opposite side signaling has subtleness and the action is imperceptible to the spectator on resting the orb. The smooth flatness of the material on the orb holder camouflages any triggering mechanism … no suspicious bulge there. Transparency in the glass columns removes any thoughts of being gimmicked. These are only a few fine points from a man known for perfecting his magic creations.
With the last three releases, Richard has outdone himself in the realm of mini-magic and I consider myself quite fortunate to be among the small band of loyal buyers able to acquire a Gerlitz magical piece on its initial release. I have written accolades on Richard’s magic over the years, and, yet, he still surprises me with every new release.
Quite simply … AMAZING!
