Topic: Anton Levitation sold by Tilford Illusions
Message: Posted by: markofmagic (Jan 22, 2010 03:30AM)
Sorry I posted this in a different area but this one seems better suited. Does anyone have any experience with the Anton levitation that Tilford sells? Is there any angle problems? Can the magician move around behind and in front of it? Can an audience member be levitated or do you have to use your assistant? Is there a weight limit on the person being levitated? Does it pack down small and how heavy is it? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks Mark

Buyers beware and inventors as well. The Slice Man illusion, created by Nestor Rotsen is being copied by the new owners of Tilford. They purchased one unit from the creatora only to copy it, making some minor aestethical changes.
Anyone offering their products through Tilford risks (and most certaily will) being ripped-off.

As Rolf said, Tilford ripped off the slice man illusion. It is basically a piece of junk. Very flimsy, manufactured with no quality control whatsoever. It's priced at about 5 times what it's worth. Just my 2 cents.

My experience with Tilford: I paid a deposit and since them they don't reply to my mails. Will wait till the end of the week and if I don't get any answer will fill a lawsuit!

Time for an update on my previous post:

It turned out that Tilford had a difficult moment the time I ordered the illusions. But everything is fine now, they contacted me several times (phone, whatsapp, email) to find together with my a solution.
I got my Illusions and honestly, I am very happy! The quality is very good, the bases are deceptive and they taught on everything.
