What's your favorite gimmick and why? We very rarely get to talk about the awesome gizmos that we secretly use. Now's your chance to recommend or express your views on the sneaky things that heighten our magical abilities.
Please try to avoid giving away any of the secrets. Just tell us why you like using it.
Here areÂ Chris' picks:
Thumb Tip: Given the number of effects possible with a TT, it's no wonder that you'll find one in just about every close-up magician's case.
Expanded Shell: This is one of those gimmicks that allows you to use sleight of hand, while making your magic look way more visual.
Reel: I have been converted. I don't know why I put up a front for so long, but the Spider Pen has replaced my standard reel. No clips, no rubberbands, way easier to refill, and no need to worry about hiding the thing; it hides itself.
Third Degree Burn: This thing is so cool, that I'm always tempted to show it to people. It's very well thought out and expertly manufactured. Not to mention that the effect is stunning.
