I've been happy with my Abbott's model for over 20 years.

Chalet was always very good, as was Abbott's.

I prefer the Chalet, although they are hard to come by.

There is a Chalet for sell on magicauction. It's hard to tell from the pic, but it looks like after-market handles may have been added on the sides.

They are all practically the same to me.

I agree with Dynamike, they're pretty much the same. It's all about the production.

I would NEVER part with my Chalet dove tray. They're going to have to bury me with it...

Stoners.com has a very nice balloon to dove tray on sale. Very well made, and it is marked down because not many magicians in Fort Wayne work with doves.

Go to http://www.stoners.com and put "balloon to dove" in the search engine. Only $139.95. I have seen this up close, and it is very nice. I would buy one, but I no longer use doves.

How about Dave Powell's Balloon-To-Dove? It is pricey, but it looks very nice.....judging from photos I have seen. Does anyone have any hands-on experience with it?

Check out the tricks for sale. I'm selling off my Chalet dove trays. One is manual, the other is electronic which still function well.

Chalet is what I actually use.

Chalet - also gets my vote. However, to be fair, it's the only one I have used.

Chalet Magic is great, but are they even in business? Have not heard anyone buying anything from them for years.
Message: Posted by: Dave Scribner (Mar 9, 2011 12:36PM)
Bill, they are in business, but I've heard from a few people that it can take a few years from the date of the order to get anything from him. The products are well worth the wait, but the wait is not good customer service.

I think George is spending more time playing music.

I have been using Abbott's Dove in Balloon tray, Doves from Air and even Sword thru Neck for a good 30 years now - still looks and works great!
