Topic: Star Gazer Trick by Alan Wong-Does anyone use it?

I saw this trick called Star Gazer and it's something with rubber bands. I've never heard of this trick. To all those who have this effect I would just like to ask if this trick is ideal for street magic. Are there no gimmicks?

I have the effect and use it all the time. It takes about 15 minutes to learn and is well worth it! It plays just as well for adults as it does for young people.

I suppose it uses a gimmick, in terms of needing a rubber band that is shaped. But the trick requires some time to learn... it is not self-working.

It is an effect I am always sure to keep with me.

Alan Wong is a good friend of mine and he has a lot of great ideas . Stargazer is a winner. It leaves an emotional and magical mark on the spec depending on how you present it. He also sells refills.

I would only get this trick if you do other elastic band magic. It does look really lame as a stand alone effect. you must surround it with other band type stunts to get its full effect.
I tend to use it as a final for the CMH.
