Topic: Final load holders
Message: Posted by: Simon Bakker (Oct 28, 2008 04:43PM)
Hello,

Does anyone know where I can get good quality holders that will hold a final load (fake fruit, etc) for a C & B routine?
I'm looking for a holder that will keep the final loads at the edge of my jacket preferably. So, when I rest my arm to the side of my body naturally I will be able to steal a load without much trouble.
Kinda like Dan Tongs amazing TDC utility holdout, but then on that will hold a ballshaped object?

Can anyone point me in the direction?

Thanks!
Simon

They didn't work for me. I went a different route.

The people who brought you the High Caliber Holster also makes a belt holder.

You'd need more than one, and going to your waistband might not be as good an option as the edge of a coat, but it might be worth a look.

May I ask which route worked for you?
Can you expand a little bit on why the fabric manipulation holders didn't work?
Thanks!

These are nice - http://www.penguinmagic.com/specialorderproduct.php?ID=7260. I bought some but I don't use them, instead I do half pocket loads half servante.

Maybe you can buy holders off of Kent and Uriel.

I made one out of a sock. Cut the sock off and load it with the elastic pointing down. Pin it under your jacket after inserting the load. You may have to experiment with different size socks.

Simon,

I didn't even mean to imply Ms. Welch doesn't make the best holders I've ever seen. She does.

I PM'ed you as to why I don't use 'em.

Read up on some billiard ball holders used by manipulators like Geoffrey Buckingham and Ron MacMillen.
