[/quote] I had the same thoughts about Pole Suspensions, Broom Suspensions and any visibly supported suspensions. They all had a solid support that enabled suspension. My disdain for those effects is why I came up with the Magellan Master Levitation. However, when you do this live, it provides the action of levitation without a solid object, like a pole, folding chair or broomstick. For many, including myself, seeing this on video or in a picture doesn't appeal to me and many. I totally understand your opinion if you haven't seen it done live. But, ask a layman to watch the video, and get them to tell you what they think. We just seem to look at things through the eyes of a magician due to our training. When you watch the video, don't pay as much attention to what you see... Listen. To the audience. This is the key to perceiving how effective this is. And, remember, there are several other factors that sell the innocence of the cloth, such as carrying it to center stage or having it wadded up in a small pile on the floor before and after the effect. It's like a Zombie ball... we all know what is going on... b_ _ _ on a s_ _ _k, but, with proper handling, the audience is really affected by it. There is one other issue with both the Magellan and the Jumbo Sidekick... Neither of these would fare well outdoors on a windy day. If it were me, I would spend my money on one of these that I preferred, and something that could be performed outdoors. You just never know where you're going to be asked to perform. Another thing that many don't consider about the Magellan Master Levitation is that it can be performed silently, for any audience that understands any language. Also, if you're doing a quick TV spot, it's a quick visual. In a review show where the sound with the microphone might not be great, this is perfect for a silent piece set to music. And, ironically, this can be done in a smaller area than Jumbo Sidekick. If you consider that the levitation is politically non-offensive, and can be done for school presentations and situations where there will be children and adolescents, unlike an effect with a gun, then you might change your mind. Just a thought. Oh, and most importantly... The Magellan Master Levitation is in stock right now, at a 33% lower price than the other item in question, even if it were available!
