Topic: Irish 8's from bob Solari
Message: Posted by: thegreatscungilli (Feb 21, 2020 01:38PM)
Just got a very nice set of gaffed Irish 8's from Bob Solari...very well made. I tried to figure them out before reading the details and I would say they could be easily examined by a spectator without any concerns...they weren't cheap but the quality is on par and Bob shipped them very quickly..

Not sure if he has any more in stock but if you are looking for a good pair of gaffed Irish 8's these seem to be a good bet..

They're $40 retail at "Discount Handcuffs"....I hope that's what you paid.

Gee Mox, I've seen gaffed Irish 8's going for a lot more tha that. Are there better made gimmicks or something?

"Magic Dealers" greatly mark up their prices. Period. It's the exact same product & gaff.

Btw--I hope you know that the above "Irish 8" handcuffs from both firms - are modern reproductions....hence, the price.

Never-the-less, they are well-made...and your audience couldn't care less if they are 100 years old, or 6 months old.

Here is Bob's site and I don't see the cuffs you are talking about. I see the Darby's though. I wonder if they are any good.
