Magic Combos!

Posted on November 26, 2008 by chris ballinger There have been 28 comment(s)

You may have noticed the strange infomercials that have been popping up around the site. When Brian asked me to make commercials for the sets I'm not sure that's exactly what he had in mind. Even though the commercials are super cheesy and kind of ugly, the sets themselves are awesome.

We wanted to offer something a little different from the standard magic set; and so we set out to create something that we would actually use. Each combo includes effects from our professional shows. We also wanted to be sure that you knew how to use your new stuff so we went out and made our own instructional DVDs.

First we'll take a look at the Close-Up Combo:
This set includes a professional set of Professor's Nightmare Ropes which can be used for the standard routine as well as 'Fraid Knot and Fiber Optics routines. Also included is a set of Super Soft Sponge Balls and a Stripper Deck. But the real jewel of the set is the Aluminum Cups and Balls. It comes with cork balls with a knitted covering, three dashing cups and a magic wand. And let's not forget the Instructional DVD that covers everything including two Stripper Deck routines, two Sponge Ball routines and bonus Cups and Balls routines.

Next up is the Street Magic Combo:
Everything in this set has been featured on various street magic television specials. It includes the famous Bite Out Quarter trick. It also includes the Perfect PENetration trick, which allows you to push a pen through just about anything. Some of the tricks are pulled from my personal street shows; such as the Magic Sugar Packet, Vanishing Napkin, and Torn & Restored Napkin. Also included in the set is the classic Coin in Bottle effect. And the Invisible Deck, which is one of the best card tricks ever devised: a freely named card is impossibly turned over in a deck of cards. This set also includes a DVD which teaches several effects with the supplied gimmicks.

And finally, the Stage Magic Combo:
This set is ideal for those interested in performing for a larger audience. Whether it's for a talent show or to perform at parties and special event; this set is very commercial. The Magic Blooming Flower and Ultra Egg Bag are so versatile that they can fit into any routine. The 6 Card Repeat is a classic effect that never fails to please. The set also includes The Jumbo Moving Pips which is a variation on the Hoppin Spots effect that has been a best seller for us. The Stage set also features my personal Chinese Linking Rings routine with the exact seamless metal rings that I use in my professional shows! And of course you get the Instructional DVD which explains all of the routines plus tips on misdirection and performing.

All three sets will propel your magic into the next level and they make fantastic gifts. These kits really are something special and I hope you all enjoy them. Please click one of the images below to see more about these awesome sets:

    Wow, there are a lot of questions on this post already. To Ty: I sure do! That's a subject that will take more space to discuss than this response allows, so I'll write a new post on the topic in a little bit. To Spencer: There are a lot of solutions to that so I'll write about it in a bit. I might even do a video blog on that one. Finally, Memphis: Unfortunately our distributors are out of those at the moment (we bought them all for these sets.) Look for them sometime in 2009. Thanks for reading, everybody!

    What's up again I was also wondering if you could consider any good card tricks because at my school i'm like considered "The Teen David Blaine" so thanks.

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hey David: all three are great. If you want to stun people at school, I'd go with the Street. But if you are performing for a larger group of people I would definately go with the Stage Set. And the Close-up set has the most effects, so if you want the most bang for your buck go with that one.

    Thanks Chris also I am wanting to get either The Web trick or The Gyspy Curse Trick.Which one of these tricks would you think would go good with a 12 year old wanting to immpress friends?

    Posted on November 30, 2008 at 3:06 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Get the Web before Gypsy Curse. They're both good tricks, but you'll get bigger reactions and have an easier time learning the Web.

    Chris- please help me...

    Should I get the Raven or the Gecko? What do you recommend? Also how can I learn the flushtration count? And one last thing...Why is magic so expensive? I think that you guys should give discounts to members or have sales or something.

    Everything I want for my 5 year old grandson is out of stock; i.e. magic kits and individual tricks (first 3 listed). When will you restock? Before Christmas?

    Posted on December 2, 2008 at 9:48 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hello Jan! Sorry about the low stock quantities. A lot of products in the magic industry are manufactured by the individual inventors, so they run out of stock and we cannot get them. We restock every day, so if it's not in stock that usually means that the manufacturer is temporarily out of stock. The best thing to do is to e-mail us ( with a list of exactly what you want and we can give you an estimated time of delivery or take down your information to contact you when they come back into stock.

    This is a response to Yohan: Both the Raven and the Gecko are great effects. The Raven is great because it can happen in a spectator's hand, but the Gecko is an improvement on the Raven as it can vanish a larger variety of objects. The Web has instructions on how to do the Flustration Count--I believe it is also covered in the book "Counts, Cuts, Moves, and Subtlties". The price of magic is determined by the creator of the trick. Lowering our prices or giving huge discounts would undermine the integrity of the inventors of magic and that would cause a chain reaction resulting in the exposure of secrets and products of poor quality. And finally, I absolutely recommend the Dove Pan. It's a great trick and I use it in all of my stage shows. I also recommend the Latex Dove; its price is the result of memory Latex technology combined with super realistic molding, glass eyes, and a hand-painted beak. It's a work of art.

    Hey chris,

    I am only 14 years old and im really into magic. My problem is where i live hter is no magci shops for at least an hour away and my parents dont drive. I live in canada so shipping is expensive. have any segestions on what i ca do to get magic suplies whitout a bunch of money to spend

    Posted on January 12, 2009 at 3:44 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hello Connor: I suggest checking out our FedEx Express International Shipping, it's only 21 bucks and it gets your order to you in about 2-4 days. We also have a Ground International option for our Canadian customers wich can cost anywhere from 12 to 15 dollars, but that would take a little longer to get to you. Thanks for your question.

  • Chris Ballinger

    Oh Connor, I almost forgot! You should check out our Instant Download section. They are video files that you can download on to your computer. They teach you how to build your gimmicks and perform your tricks. The best part is that nothing is shipped, so there is no shipping fee or wait time.

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hello ramiro: Wow, it sounds like you really want those tricks. Unfortunately, if something is out of stock that means the manufacturer is out of it and it is beyond our control. We keep track of all of our products and reorder as soon as we are out of stuff. If a magic trick is available, we have it. The best thing for you to do is e-mail us with a list of the products you are looking for, that way we can e-mail you when they come back into stock. Thanks.
