I've been playing with this new prop for about 2 weeks. I've come to the conclusion that I need to add a little more to the gimmick to reduce secondary sounds.

I really like the prop but that secondary sound is a dead giveaway.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so how did you reduce the noise?

Great question. Iíve just got the box too and have come to the conclusion that due to the rattling once the ring has vanished that the box canít be left on the spectatorís hand in the routine. This is a shame as thatís what I wanted! Hey ho.... I donít think there is a way to eliminate the rattling, so I think itís just a case of not doing the vanish on the spectatorís hand sadly 😢😢😢

I just got one as well and Iím loving practicing with it so far. Iím working on a way of doing the move simultaneously with closing the box with same hand. Itís not as hard as it sounds and in one motion you can hand the box to the spectator and with some practice they will be 100% sure that ring is in the box because you have done nothing but close it while handing it to them and have only touched it with one hand too. By utilizing proper angles,Ramsay subtlety, ect. you hand them the box with the same hand.then you will not have any rattling. You can use your phone to video yourself at the average angle and height you think your spectators eyes will be to check for anything that needs corrected.

I think it possible to get another layer inside to dampen the sound. I just need to try a couple of different types of materials.

It's a shame because the trailer video looks so good, but I tried it on a friend and they knew instantly where the ring was.

They knew where the ring was because of the rattle?

yes. you can hear it rattle and feel the rattle when do the trick

Also very deceptive demo video. And if they spent the amount of time that they say it took to "get it right" after the 1st large version, then I'd think this type of thing would have been taken care of.

Or maybe I should have gotten the "limited edition" Red version? The there would be no rattle???

The red edition is going to be the exact same internal parts. I agree that it is too risky to have the spectator take the box, close the box, and then hold onto the box until you are ready to take it back. But if you use the box in the way I described above it gives the spectator the same perception in the end with no chance of them hearing any rattle
