I had not seen this effect from El Duco before and was pleasantly surprised. – it looks great, is well made, and works well too.
The penetration is something off the beaten path. The penetrator is a ball bearing, and while this uses a familiar method, it is devilishly cloaked among the unique items. A tube with a rod is shown, and the ball bearing will drop clear through the tube. The wand is inserted through the hole in the tube where it fills the space inside. When the bearing is dropped into the tube, despite the presence of the wand, it still passes through the tube. This can be repeated and the handling is clever and deceptive because of the items used. At the end, thanks to and additional item provided, the wand, tube, and bearing can be handed for examination (or do this prior to the beginning of the effect). This is boxed and comes with all of the props in near mint condition, and with the original instructions.
Color Effect is an item I have sold regularly for some time now and is a very strong mental effect with a magical twist finish. Briefly, a color is privately selected by a spectator (form 8 different colors) by placing his thumb on the card and fixing the color in his mind (this can be done with the performer out of the room). The performer attempts to "read" the spectator to determine his selection. He eliminates several of the colors but fails to find the selected color. The spectator is invited to turn over the remainder of the cards that he did not select leaving his selection on the table. When he turns over this final card a thumbrint has magically appeared on the reverse side of the card. Other presentations are possible and I have receive nothing but positive responses from purchasers. The effect is complete with cards, thumbrint, and instructions. There is no fishing, no peeks, and no markings, yet you are 100% correct everytime.
