    Hey Chris!
    Im a big fan of your videos, your hilarious!
    Anyway, i was wondering,
    In the trick "The Magic Pencil" Can the pencil Be inspected?
    Thanks for this force video I hadnt heard of this one.

    Posted on February 19, 2010 at 11:28 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hi Bailey, The Magic Pencil can be examined, but I don't think we are carrying it anymore. We are working on getting the original version of the effect, which I like a little better. Thanks for your question.

    hey chris. this is an awesome website. i was wondering if you think the shark would be a good trick for an intermediate magician like me.

    Posted on August 17, 2010 at 3:34 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hi Andrew: I've seen some very clever routines done by intermediate magicians with the Shark. There are a bunch of routines and ideas on the DVD and I'm sure you'll find one that works great with your performance style. Thanks for considering it!
