    Hi Taylor, we are absolutely giving away that little bike. It's been used and there's some rust here and there, but enough of you asked for it, so we are shipping it out to some lucky JB-Product-Owner.

    I know this is of topic, but could Magic Geek get the standard size invisble thread reel such as the one in the Assassins pouch video on YouTube? Please respond.

    Hi Phill Diaz, both tricks have their strong points. I feel that Hole Sensation is simpler, easier to carry around and easier to perform. But, I think I like Solo better because the end effect is stronger. The selected card vanishes in a more visible way and ends up trapped in the card box instead of back in the deck.

    I have slither and i was wondering if i should get hole sensation or no entry. I know link 2.0 isnt a jb trick but is it a good close up effect?

    Hi Jarrod, That's so weird, I was asked this exact same question just a little while ago in the Blog post titled "MAGIC GEEK HAT GIVEAWAY". You should check out my answer there (It's the second comment in.) Link 2.0 is a great close-up trick, but I would recommend getting the Link DVD to go along with it. 2.0 is just a new gimmick and doesn't come with the same ammount of instruction that the DVD has, it's sort of an add-on to the original.

    alright, stripper deck vs. gaff deck showdown $tripper (to vote for stripper) or G@ff (for gaff)

    Hi ian, a "Showdown" would clog up the Comments section of the Blog. I think this is a great topic for discussion in the Magic Geek Forum. You should start up a thread in the "Cards" section.

    oh, sorry, Chris, I didn't know what the forum was... hey, would you mind recommending a trick under $10 that's easy to learn?:)

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hi ian, yeah, the Forum is pretty cool, you should check it out. There are a lot of magicians on there ready to give advice and share stories. Here are my top five easy tricks under ten bucks: Bite OUt Quarter, Floating Match on Card, Mental Manipulation, Dime and Penny, and the Disappearing Card Case.

    Also, what is the difference between the Pk ring and the vortex ring?

    hey, chris, are you gonna sell that song, it could be a one hit wonder!

    Posted on July 18, 2009 at 8:06 am

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hi Greg, All three of those would be good for children. It kind of depends on the age group. A lot of younger kids don't really understand card tricks. A simple one like Blink is good because of how visual it is. They might get lost in the twists of Club Sandwich and Tag.

    The main difference in the rings are their styles. The standard PK Ring has a slightly stronger pull than the Vortex.

    Hi Ian, thanks, but I don't know if I want anyone outside of the Magic Geek circle to ever hear that song.

    hey chris i just bought magic coloring book, chop cup chopper, three shell game, and sponge dvd, do you think they are all good for birthdays?????????????????

  • Chris Ballinger

    Hi magic erck,

    We might get some large stage illusions. It's hard to find ones that are good quality without being crazy expensive, not to mention the fact that the shipping cost on them would also be huge.

    Those all sound like good tricks to do a childrens party. I would be a little worried about how small the Three Shell Game is. If you are doing a show with a table and 20 kids sitting on the floor around you, it's going to be very hard for them to watch the Three Shell Game. It's a great trick, but you want your audience to be close enough to see it.
