On the Pea Subject.

I use Bob Swadling's Shells in My bar, These are more like rounded caps than walnut shells, The sort of things a gentleman con man might have used in some colonial bar. They look great and handle well. I use SFS Street shells elswhere because they work anywhere on any surface. I use Whit's perfect Pea in both of them. I'm not a fan of Sponge peas because I like to feel exactly where th pea is, and I can control it better with Whit's pea. But I am fully aware that this is purely a personal choice, and I have no objection to sponge peas in other people's hands.

I am on a break from the bar now, but I will be back over there rolling silver foil balls to try.

My thoughts

I purchased a set of those from Bob at the Centenary. They are really nice shells. I like the case they come in.

In the meantime I did some experimenting. With a matchbox the "accidental" flash move is not so difficult but with our 'walnut' shells . . . . I don't know if it is feasible.
It CAN be done but it will take some practice. On the other hand if the move doesn't succeed either the pea isn't seen or the shell is turned over, in both cases no big deal.


"Flash" moves can easily be incorporated. As you just learned though, this particular matchbox move is much more easily done with matchboxes than shells.

I do accidental flashes in my routine. I only do it one time during the routine but it really fries people.

Is this pea can still on the market?


Glenn -

I don't believe the "Candy Kiss Can" is still on the market. Denny (Denny & Lee Magic) used to have some but I think he is sold out. One may pop up on e-Bay from time to time.

You might check with George Robinson. I think he was making them at one time.
