Spikes For Skeptics by Owen Magic Supreme, Bill Taylor

(c. 1960,1997) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Spikes Thru Balloon was invented by Bob Gurtler (Andre Kole) and markted by U.F. Grant c. 1958. This version by Bill Taylor first appeared in Genii Magazine – December, 1960. The same version was later released by Owen Magic Supreme and what a beauty it is.

Effect: The spectator is invited to blow up a balloon inside a small tube with small circular holes in the sides, and a larger window in front and back. The balloon extends from either end of the tube, and may be seen through all holes. A sharp pencil, borrowed if desired, is then trust through the two small holes, apparently penetrating the balloon. Next, a wand is pushed through, and finally, a flimsy drinking straw penetrates the sides of the balloon, and smoke is blown right through to prove something-or-other to the disbelievers. The balloon is removed WITHOUT DEFLATING IT, and is handed out for examination.

    No fake Balloon Penetration

    I grew up with an effect called the Balloon Tube – I don’t know who did the original, but MAK and many others have had their variations. I like this one from Owens because it is all clean before and after with no fakes to be seen. Clever idea!
