    One of our sources told us that the Magic Doodle Pen was used for the trick with the Xs. I looked into it and the Doodle Pen was not used in the special, it is a similar effect. At any rate, the trick Exile was used in the special, not the Doodle pen, sorry for the confusion.

    Thank You ! I tried explaining to my son that David's tricks weren't all that original ... it is cool to take an idea or routine and add our own spin to it ! I visit this site everyday , to see what is new as well as getting ideas for my own routines ! So many of the items offered here have endless possibilities ! A simple , inexpensive thumb tip can go a long way . . . I once used a thumb tip to turn a jelly bean into a diamond ring ! Don't be afraid to take a trick and put your " spin " on it and make it your own !

    The cap in bottle wasn't used with a pk ring it was actually Aquarius which you can buy on here other than that it was a great video.

    also it wasn't Heiny 500 that was used for the bill switch it was actually Extreme Burn by Richard Sanders the guy who created Fiber Optics.
