Topic: The Tabman Walnut Street Wand
Message: Posted by: cupsandballsmagic (Jul 25, 2009 03:16PM)
I have a confession to make, despite Tabman being one of the most respected manufacturers of wooden products around I had never owned a Tabman wand.

This was something that had to be put right so I took delivery of the Tabman Walnut Street Wand and I love it.

It's elegant looking and solid and of course it shouldn't harm the cups. Price wise it costs $30 (around £18 I believe?) which is a great price and if you are in the UK it's post paid.

It is a little lighter than some wands I have (Delrin and Mercury for instance) however it spins perfectly.

It's a keeper, I really like it.

There's a little more and some hi-res pics here for those who are interested...

Thanks a million for the good words on the new book. I wrote it to be read and enjoyed; maybe get a few laughs and get the point across.

And the new wand looks great!!! ;)

Thanks again,

Bri,
On your site, I couldn't see where you posted the length and diameter of the wand.

I saw these at IBM. They are definitely excellent wands.

Thanks for the kind words. We have been playing around making these out of various woods and sizes. Bill Palmer, It was a pleasure to finally get to meet you at the IBM convention. Wish we lived closer together as I could use your expertise and knowledge. While everyone is at it check out Bri's cups and balls site.

I enjoyed meeting both of you, too. I wish I'd spent more time in the dealer's room, but my wife insisted that we have at least one meal together during the day. ;)

Yeah. If you don't feed them, they wander off to other places.

Yup, careful Ray, those street wands are probably tougher than your head!
